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.

Is it ok to do that then, assume you are back. Cant see the French being happy with the loss of revenue but good idea.
