Flexipass

Ticket validity

Flexipass tickets can be used on ScotRail, CrossCountry and TransPennine Express services.

Buy in advance or on day of travel

A Flexipass normally starts on the date you select when you buy your ticket. But it can start from a future date if you prefer.

Same journey travel

Flexipass lets you travel in either direction on a route of your choice. You cannot join or depart at intermediate stations, unless your route involves a change of train at that point.

Edinburgh to Glasgow Flexipass

You can buy a 10 or a 50 journey Flexipass for travel between Edinburgh and Glasgow. You can also buy a First Class Flexipass ticket for this route, subject to availability. 50-journey Flexipasses are available from ScotRail booking offices, on paper only.

Loading Flexipass tickets to your Smartcard

Adding Flexipass tickets to your Smartcard is easy, whether you’re planning ahead or buying on the go. If you’re buying from the booking office or ticket vending machine, your Flexipass will be loaded instantly to your card. If you’re buying online via our website or app, then you’ll need to allow four hours before loading your ticket at the station. Find out more about how Smartcard works here.

Checking how many journeys you have left

Check how many Flexi journeys are left on your Smartcard with Check and Collect on the ScotRail App.

Or if you bought your Flexipass online or using the ScotRail app, you can check how many journeys you have left by following the steps below:

  1. Log in to your My ScotRail account to access your dashboard
  2. Click the 'view details' button next to your Smartcard number
  3. Scroll down to view information about the tickets left on this card

Your My ScotRail account is updated every few hours so may not always show the most recent journey.

Tapping in and out

You need to tap in and tap out at a ticket gate or platform validator at the start and end of every journey. This activates each single Flexi ticket. If you haven’t activated a Flexi journey before you board, our staff will ask you to buy a valid alternative ticket for your journey, which you’ll need to use to exit the station at the end of your journey. Tapping in and out each time you travel also means you won't lose any journeys you shouldn't, and that you travel seamlessly through gates.

Changes and refunds

Tickets aren’t transferable and you won’t get a refund for a 10-journey ticket if you don’t use all your journeys before your ticket expires.
