A Fife man has won a luxury Highland holiday after becoming the 100,000th member of ScotRail’s new Club 50 discount scheme.
William Thomson, aged 55, from Thornton has landed a two-night stay for two at Macdonald Aviemore Resort as a thank you for helping ScotRail hit the six-figure milestone.
Thomson also received two First Class rail tickets to and from the Highland resort, which has recently undergone a £5 million lavish refurbishment and sits just across the road from ScotRail’s Aviemore station.
He said: “It is a wonderful, unexpected surprise to hear that I’m the 100,000th member of Club 50.
“I’m really looking forward to our trip to Aviemore and we’re already planning further fun journeys around Scotland using the great Club 50 scheme.”
Nesta Gilliland, ScotRail’s head of marketing, said: “Club 50 has really caught the imagination of our 50+ customers, who can now enjoy year-round discounts – even on short journeys – as well as other great benefits.
“We’re pleased to be able to mark this 100,000-member milestone, and wish Mr Thomson all the best for his journey and stay in Aviemore.”
Club 50 offers 20% discounts on all Off-Peak and Advance fares to people aged over 50 – and, according to ScotRail, has proved extremely popular since launching last month.
