We frequently review the below information with testing suppliers to ensure you continue to receive peace of mind when planning your holiday. However, due to the constantly evolving nature of the Coronavirus pandemic and the potential for changes to travel testing requirements, changes can occur at short notice following new developments, relevant guidance and legal obligations.
How do I know what Covid-19 test/s I need?
The Covid-19 test package and supplier you require depends on the entry requirements of your holiday destination and the UK country you live in – check the requirements for the country you’re travelling to and from before booking your test package. The testing suppliers will be able to give you more advice. Please note the requirements when travelling to and from England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales may be different.
