No just the general discount applies, and yes ,no

In which case anyone who would normally receive a discount and to whom this is actually a price increase should complain to Scotrail.

Spirit of Scotland is on promotion with 20% off until the end of March. I wonder if that's anything to do with it.

Not many other tickets that have validity on external bus, coach (and ship) services are available at priv discount, The Explore Wales tickets are probably the best value along with the Scottish rover.
I think that's why the Priv discount has gone. Similarly the Valleys Day Ranger used to be available with Priv but given the price would be cheaper than many singles on Stagecoach's services, it didn't make much sense.

Agreed with Haywain, the Spirit of Scotland discount section in the Knowledgebase definitely says there is no staff discount available.

Thank you for the information. It would be good if the BR fares site was updated to reflect the amendments to what discounts are available.
--- old post above --- --- new post below ---
Is it likely the Rover and Ranger tickets will not be here for much longer?
