Travellers looking for a magical winter weekend can reach London and Scotland for less this Christmas thanks to Caledonian Sleeper’s new ‘Festive Returns’ journey.

The overnight rail service is offering half price tickets on the second leg of journeys on all routes throughout November and the first half of December – ideal timing for those looking to experience some of the UK’s popular Christmas markets.

Guests will pay the standard cost for the first leg of the journey, with their journey home reduced to 50% of the original price. And unlike flying guests don’t need to worry about extra costs to take home last-minute shopping thanks to an unlimited baggage allowance.

Iain Baxter, Serco’s marketing and revenue director at Caledonian Sleeper, said: “We all know that Christmas is the most wonderful time of year and at Caledonian Sleeper we want to help people discover some of the festive magic on show across the UK.

“Whether it’s enjoying a mulled wine with a loved one in London or exploring Edinburgh’s Christmas market with friends, there is no easier way to reach your destination than with us. With this brilliant offer, you’d be hard pressed to find a more cost effective one either." The offer is available on Standard Class Rooms on all routes for bookings made by December 15.
