Club 50 requires online sign up because membership is based on the issue of a Smartcard, and as a business we have committed to the Scottish Government that we will roll out smartcard ticket options as quickly as possible. Having a smartcard means that, in future, it will be possible to 'load' your Club 50 tickets onto your smartcard.

Our advice to those who wish to go ahead, but are unsure of how to proceed, is to ask for help from friends or relatives. Public libraries may also be able to assist in getting you online. Remember, you only have to do this once - once signed up, Club 50 customers can continue to buy tickets at stations if they prefer.

Because Club 50 requires an online account, we need an email address for each member. This serves as the username for the account.

There are many great free email service providers on the internet and we urge customers to check them out or speak to your Internet Service Provider for help.

Unfortunately not. To allow us to offer the best deals and discounts and to keep your personal information secure, Club 50 requires online registration and an email address. This cannot be supported at a station or by post.

You can’t use your Club 50 membership before your 50th birthday so you should wait until you turn 50 to join. You can access the benefits straight away and don’t need to wait until your membership Smartcard arrives. You’ll be required to carry proof of age (50 or over) when travelling on a Club 50 ticket.

Customers whose 50th birthday was before 30th September 2015, were able to join Club 50 during the introductory period. However they couldn’t travel on the introductory fare until they were 50.

Check these answers to common account problems.

Firstly, check your Junk, Spam and Deleted email folders. Some of emails may get picked up by more sensitive Spam filters.

If you can’t find it, don’t worry. To check your membership, and view or print your member details, just log in to your Club 50 account online at www.scotrail.co.uk/club50/form.

Unfortunately, we cannot resend the membership confirmation email.

First of all, don’t panic! If you can remember the address you used then you can log in to your account online and access all your details as normal. You won’t receive the confirmation email, but the email isn’t necessary to buy discounted tickets or redeem offers.

If you can’t remember the email address you used, contact our customer service team who will check the system and tell you. You’ll need to log in using that address for now as this is your unique username. But we’ll be introducing the ability to amend it in the future.

Please send both your correct details and the details of your current registration to our Smartcard team and we will make these changes for you. Note that email address changes cannot be made at present.

Our online registration form and photo upload tool is designed for - and tested on - many device types and web browsers. If you’re experiencing technical difficulties we recommend you try again using a different device or a web browser.

We have also heard that some customers have experienced issues when completing the form over a slower mobile network connection. Where possible, we recommend you use a wifi connection.

It’s hard for us to diagnose why your mobile device may be having difficulty - if you would like to report it to us, you can visit www.whatismybrowser.com from the device you are using and send us the information that it will display.

If you set up your ScotRail account BEFORE 1st April 2015, then you will need to register again. Unfortunately, due to data protection, we were not able to migrate all of your personal information during the ScotRail franchise change.

If you have set up an account since 1st April 2015, please contact our web support team who can check your account for you. Or you can use the Forgotten Password link to reset your password.

From 14th December 2015, an annual Club 50 membership will cost £15. You will be required to pay for your membership with a credit or debit card using our secure online payment form.

No, you must never use someone else’s debit or credit card. But they can pay on your behalf by typing their information into the payment screen.

Once you have paid, there is no need to change the information you have entered. We don’t take recurring payments and we don’t store your payment information.

When you have registered you will receive 20% discount on Off-Peak and Advance fares, anywhere in Scotland. All you need to do is log into your account to book your tickets. You can choose to collect your tickets from a ticket vending machine (you will need the card you booked with and your reference number) or have them posted to you.

You can also claim a 10% discount on Off-Peak and Advance fares, anywhere in Scotland, these can be purchased manned at stations or via Telesales.
