Test Information

In-clinic Tests:

We have over 30 locations across the UK. In-clinic tests offer the fastest results with many clinics offering same-day results.

Antigen Tests by Post:

Antigen tests a rapidly becoming more popular for travelling to countries that accept them as a form of testing. They’re quick, affordable, and don’t need to be sent off to a laboratory.

PCR Tests by Post:

PCR tests by post are the most affordable option and offer the convenience of having the tests sent to your home, or the location where you are self-isolating.

However, the turnaround time for results is not as rapid as the in-clinic option. This may make the postal option unsuitable for pre-travel tests where your destination requires that the test be taken in a window of 72 hours (or less) prior to travel.

For Test to Release (Day 5) tests, the postal option will also not allow you to leave self-isolation as early as with the same test at an in-clinic location.

Green and Amber Packs:

We offer postal Green and Amber packs which include all the tests you need within one convenient package based on the traffic light status of the country to which you are traveling.

Pre-Travel RT-PCR Tests:

Available in-clinic and by post, pre-travel RT-PCR tests are required for most travel destinations. You can see the requirements for all destinations on our travel information portal.

Day 2 and Day 8 Tests:

Day 2 tests are required when you return to the UK if you have visited a Green list country. A day 2 test is also required if you have visited an Amber list country and you have been fully vaccinated (two jabs) in the UK at least 14 days prior to your trip.

A Day 2 and Day 8 test are required if you return from an Amber list country if not fully vaccinated.

See our travel information portal for the current traffic light status of all counties.

Day 5 (Test to Release)

Day 5 Tests are optional. Taking the test on day 5 (and obtaining a negative result) will allow you to leave self-isolation immediately, rather than waiting for the entire 10 days.

10 day self-isolation only applies to travellers who are not fully vaccinated and are returning from an Amber list country.
