Date lodged: 2 February 2018

To ask the Scottish Government whether the Caledonian Sleeper Franchise agreement regarding honouring Network Rail cards continues to apply.

Answered by: Humza Yousaf 21 February 2018

The Caledonian Sleeper Franchise Agreement requires the provision of discounts to holders of Disabled Persons' Railcards, 16-25 Railcards, Senior Railcards and Scottish Youth Railcards. Holders of Family and Friends Railcards and of Two Together Railcards also receive discounts when booking accommodation on the existing sleeper trains. On the new trains, they will receive discounts when booking reclining seats and when purchasing inter-available tickets that they can use along with a sleeper supplement.
