Young Scot also offers a wide range of discounts:

  • Feeling peckish? Grab a tasty deal at many food outlets in Aberdeen.
  • Like fashion? Many leading retailers offer discounts on the latest fashion when you present your Accord Card at the till.

Bus travel 

Are you aged 16-18?

Be smart and get a third off bus travel with your Accord / Young Scot Card!

First Bus Aberdeen, in partnership with Transport Scotland, has upgraded its ticket machines so if you are aged 16-18 and live in Aberdeen City, you no longer need to use the 'Bus Concession Card' but can just swipe your Accord / Young Scot Card at the ticket machine to get a third off any single adult fare.

Please note that not all bus services in Scotland recognise the Young Scot Card yet and if you travel with a bus operator that doesn't recognise the card yet you will need to have a 'Bus Concession Card' to get your 1/3 off on board. For First Bus Aberdeen however you no longer will need a 'Bus Concession Card'.

Rail travel

If you already have an Accord/National Entitlement Card, you will receive a voucher for a Scottish Youth Railcard when you turn 16. If you apply for an Accord/National Entitlement Card after your 16th birthday the voucher will be sent out at the same time.

To get your Scottish Youth Railcard , take your voucher and your Accord/National Entitlement Card to the ticket office at Aberdeen Rail Station.

 With your Scottish Youth Railcard you will get:

  • One third off most rail fares
  • 50% off all weekly or monthly tickets
  • One third off most advance purchases

Your Scottish Youth Railcard is valid for 12 months and you will automatically receive a new voucher each year until your 19th birthday.
