Going from my earlier post we actually had to go to the local chemist in the end to have our test.

We paid the Ä26 and 20 minutes later our test came through and they printed off all the relevant paper work/results for us 👍

Like Ken said very easy process so no need to worry

UPDATE: We jumped through all the required hoops and used C19 Testing (Co-Op) for the pre-departure (from France). Our self-test results came through 6 hours later. We used Expert Medical test certificate numbers on the Passenger Locator form and have just done their Day 2 self test.

On arrival in Plymouth we were nearly the last car off the ship (Pont Aven), which was very busy. Expecting to be held up for at least two hours, we were off the ship, through the Border Force control booths and on our way back home within 45 minutes.

At Border Control, they asked only for our passports - none of the three forms were requested. The Border Force officer told us that all the required details - vaccine certificate, pre-departure test results and Day 2 tests were visible on their system. This would account for the speed with which we were cleared through Customs/Border Force.

Everything went like clockwork with no hold-ups or hassle of any kind.

While in France we made free with local hospitality - bars and restaurants - and in each case our UK vaccination certificates were acceptable in place of the French Pass Sanitaire.

In short, if any of you are concerned at the amount of red tape we apparently have to conform to, don't be! As long as you have done what is required of you everything will go smoothly.

(Of course, things may change after 4th October or if winter brings more Covid cases, but with the UK being 3rd on the John Hopkins scale of Covid cases and France being 11th with fewer than 24% of our number of daily cases, it can surely only go one way.)

Have fun...We did!

Eventually, everything worked out ok. Apart from you can't ever speak to them or get a reply by whatever means. It all worked and I got my day 2 test back 72 hrs after sending it. Hopefully for next year (already booked for 2022 & 2023 all this crap will be gone. Why you have to have a day 2 test when you have one just before you leave is beyond me.

Try testingforall. org. Ordered an antibody test on Thursday, test arrived first post Friday, did test and posted it back same day, received texted results Saturday evening. £49.That's on a bank holiday weekend.
The Web site says they do a 2day/8day test package at £89.
Not the cheapest but with that service maybe worth a look.

Post 15 is about right. You only need the code for your locator form. After that no one seems bothered as to whether you do the test.

You won't be allowed to travel back and will have to isolate in France.

You won't be allowed to travel back until after the 10 day isolation AND then get a negative result

I am booked with Eurofin for my 2 day test.
£20. With a 4hr drive in morning slot.
Warrington Area
Two of my neighbours used this testing site on Tuesday on returning from Corfu. Tested mid morning got results 9.30pm.
They gave me very positive feedback, only hassle was internet signal.

Why do you need the test result. In fact why do you need to even send the 2 day test off. All you need is the code to put on the locator form.

Ordered from Expert Medical over a week ago, got an invoice with the order number on it and a DPD delivery number. All it say is that it has been ordered on DPD but not received parcel. I have emailed, sent a contact form and rung them over 25 times but all I get the busy signal. Not too impressed so far, so be warned. I guess as long as I have the invoice I can enter that on the locator form.

I returned from France on the 15th Aug and booked a test got it via the post and set it off and got a clear result back.

what a waste of time IMO just a way of taxing you, I have heard nothing for the passage locator form, next got asked for my result.

they did check my passenger locator from at the tunnel and checked my covid test I got in france, but the 2 day test is a con if you ask me. you have to book a test and enter the number to be able to fill out the online form

So which testing center is everybody using. I have tried countless time at Expert Medical but cannot get past the first page for registration saying 'must accept terms etc'.

Any other cheap and efficient sites?
