Which - the consumer rights company have a good information resource for testing and who does the cheapest. A lot of the discounts have been secured by travel companies and you need to have a booking reference to take advantage of these offers

https://www.which.co.uk/news/2021/06/where-can-i-get-a-covid-19-pcr-or-antigen-private-test-to-go-on-holiday/


For us independent travellers Boots seem to offer all you need at a reasonable price

They do the PCR and Antigen tests both in store and via post.

Iíll take the cheaper antigen test on the way out as itís still valid for travel to France

Hope people find these useful?

When my wife came back to the UK for a visit she didn't receive her day 2 test until day 3 or 4! Farcical.

No vaccine is 100% effective so guess you nead to still test on the way back in.

Yes they do check you have got your tests booked on the way back.

This is at the tunnel the wife saw some one with a NHS covid test turned away on the way out.

Shop around for the tests as not all the places on the government list charge the same.

Especially if doing 2 5 and 8 day package.

They are calling to check you are at home at least once a day.

Funny thing is nobody that calls or at 119 know if your test is positive or negative when they speak to you.

It's not too bad to sort by the looks of it once you know what's needed when.

I guess the 2 and 8 day test is just to ensure they've covered the incubation period, you could potentially catch it after the French test and / or on the way home......



However, why make you take a 2 and 8 day test if you have to isolate for 10 days anyway....... (unless taking the 5 day test too which probably gets you out on day 7/8) I guess better safe than sorry

I think that Boris is playing politics over this as he wants to keep everyone spending their money at home. People with full inoculation protection and a negative test before they leave for home are being treated appallingly by then being made to quarantine for 10 days and pay for two more tests. Either the inoculations work and the tests are reliable or we are all wasting our time.

Many thanks, mate. Sounds a bloody complicated affair. As read it you have to present a negative test before leaving France then two more tests in the UK (2 & 8 day) when you get home. So are they saying they don't trust the French tests or is it that you may have got infected on the boat coming home?

I've put a link a few posts back to the government official providers list that shows sample prices. Best to book a couple weeks in advance if possible as that gives you more choice, some only do x amount to ensure they can cope with the turnaround times.

You need to have them booked before coming back to the uk as you'll need the references for the passenger locator form which must be done before travelling home.

My favourite at the moment are the post packs, they mail to you and you mail back.

Nhs not acceptable I guess because they don't want to subsidise private travel or its just a way of gaining lots of ££££ for all the testing

Where are you peeps getting your tests done.

Do the 2 & 8 day tests have to be booked well in advance and how are these carried out?

Do we have to show proof of booking at Passport Control

Tnx

(Just out of interestl (no politiics please) why aren't NHS home tests acceptable? Wes self test every week and submit our results to the NHS, who then provide email confirmation tthat our self tests were negative. Surely that should be enough to satisfy border controls on both sides of the Channel.)

Whats Macron got to do with importing bait into the EU, the UK and the EU made the terms of the withdrawal agreement, with Both sides agreeing and signing it.

Indeed yes, all drifted away from the actual fishing side of things! It is simple: If you have hade 2 vaccines and have proof coupled with a negative test prior to entry in to France there is no problem.

The ******** is the money making tests and quarantine when you get back to the UK.

Do these vaccines work or not Boris, why the need to quarantine on return to the UK and pay for all the tests?

Somebody is making a fortune out of this much hyped *****!
