YOU’VE still got time to win a share of £1m in ScotRail’s latest giveaway.
The rail operator is handing out a share of a million pound fund to every customer who has a ScotRail smartcard with a ticket valid on Wednesday March 21.
If you have a ticket for travel that day, or a season ticket covering it, and it is loaded on your smartcard, you will be eligible.
The £1m kitty will be divided by the number of eligible participants to calculate the total each person will receive.
Claiming the money
Entrants will be able to claim the money from March 26 onwards.
You will have to have purchased another ticket online in the period between March 22 and June 30 2018.
You’ll then have to submit the 10-digit booking reference online to receive a portion of the money.
The promotion is not open to ScotRail staff, their families or any third party directly associated with the promotion.
Each participant may only submit one claim, and must be UK residents aged 16 or over.
The initiative is the final element of the Scottish Government’s £3million fares fund.
ScotRail Chief Operating Offer Angus Thom said: “Our £1million fund is a smart way to say thank you to our loyal customers.
“We want as many people as possible to sign up to our Smartcard, so that they can be eligible for this fund and enjoy the benefits of ticketless travel.
“We’re building the best railway Scotland has ever had, and rewarding our loyal customers is an important part of that.”
Minster for Transport and the Islands Humza Yousaf said: “I’m delighted to see the launch of final stage of the £3 million Scottish Government fares initiative.
“I would actively encourage all eligible passengers to claim their share and for even more passengers to sign up for Smart – helping to modernise the way Scotland travels now and into the future.”
From early April, twenty station travel shops will be begin to sell Smart products.
ScotRail say this will gives customers more options, and they expect good take-up from customers who may want to travel with a Smartcard but still enjoy dealing with a staff member when making their ticket purchase.
