Following the latest travel update for England on the 15th October, the Government have announced the following:


With effect from the 24th October 2021 Day 2 arrival PCR tests will be replaced by a lateral flow test. Passengers will need to take a photo of their lateral flow test and booking reference supplied by the private provider and send it back to them to verify the result


When the changes come into effect, anyone who receives a positive result from their lateral flow test will be required to self-isolate and to take a free PCR test to confirm it.


Travellers will be able to order their lateral flow tests from 22 October, when a list of approved providers will be published on the gov.uk website


NHS Test and Trace tests - which can be ordered for free - cannot be used for international travel


If the new rules means that you no longer need the tests that you have ordered with us please go to Covid Testing Enquiry to request a refund.
