A great value ticket offer from Edinburgh Trams is set to help thousands of visitors and local residents to make the most of the city’s festive celebrations.

Scotland’s capital city is home to a fantastic variety of attractions and events over the Christmas holidays, and its acclaimed tram system offers the ideal way to get around, while saving a few pounds to spend on seasonal treats!

Offering unlimited travel from all stops between Ingliston Park & Ride and St Andrew Square for up to two adults and three children, Edinburgh Trams’ ‘Family Day Tripper’ ticket only costs £7.50 and is sure to prove popular during the holidays.

For added convenience, the ‘Family Day Tripper’ can be bought in advance from edinburghticket.com before being downloaded onto a smart device or printed out to show the tram operator’s friendly Ticketing Assistants.

Lea Harrison, the tram operator’s Managing Director, commented:

Over the festive period, the city hosts a series of dazzling, family-friendly attractions, including the main Christmas markets, Santa’s Grotto, and the ice rink.

As we approach this special time of the year, we want to remind people that they can make great savings on travel around the city by taking advantage of our value-for-money ticket deals.

Naturally, this is also one of the busiest times of the year in Edinburgh. So, people can avoid the inevitable congestion, and the hassle of finding a parking space, by leaving their cars at Ingliston Park & Ride at no additional cost before taking the tram to the city where the excitement awaits.

With the nearest tram stop just a short distance away, Princes Street Gardens welcome Edinburgh’s most iconic Christmas markets on Friday, November 25, and further information on this year’s winter festivals can be found here.

As trams run from every seven minutes throughout the day between the airport and the city centre, our service is the most convenient way to experience the magic of Christmas in Edinburgh, Lea added.
