To ask the Scottish Government what its position is on the National Rail booking system not allowing a National Rail card discount for people who are not travelling together but who share a cabin on a sleeper service.
Answered by: Humza Yousaf 21 February 2018
Holders of 16-25, Disabled Adult, HM Forces and Senior Railcards are currently able to obtain a discount when booking a berth in a shared room. Holders of these Railcards will be able to obtain a discount on the new sleeper trains when booking a room for solo use or when booking a reclining seat. The facility for single travellers to "share with a stranger" will not be available on the new trains.
