    Who are people using for day 2 PCR test, I found one £67 on the goverment list, is that about the going rate?

    These are cheap – are they ok to use? or do you have to pick one off of the government website?

    I’m still waiting to hear when this “end of October” date for change from PCR to LFT actually is.  The 31st or, as hinted by Shapps, maybe a bit before that.  We’re due back in UK from France on 28th.

    we’ve been using randox, as have most people that we know, £48 each, cheaper with a coupon. from memory i think its a jet2 or tui coupon, should be easy enough to find online…..

    I just ordered a test from testingforall.org. £48 diy. Quite easy to navigate the website and I got the order reference, which is, frankly, all I want – they can post the test out or not.

    Thanks @sadexpunk
    It seems the complaints are around them sending test kits out late or not sending results back quickly, not allowing refunds etc..
    I guess I’ve fulfilled my obligations so if something goes wrong it’s not my responsibility.

    I’ve just used a chronomics test for a return to UK test and will be using them for a day 2 test. £20 for both tests via TUI, so only £40 total for 2 people.
    Website was easy to use, just needed to register the test and send a photo of the completed test result.
    Back on the beer now for the remains of the holiday 🍺😃

    Was going to say if you fly with TUI you can book through them for 20 quid… Was just told by a friend.

    That’s a bargain @retrorick

    Got back from Spain on Sunday. Had an “eventful” week in the Apujarra. French customs were no bother at all with our motorbikes on the trailer. Spanish customs didn’t exist. Riding was amazing. My VW van’s reliability not so much. It’s currently residing in a VW van centre in Motril, along with the trailer while VW work out whether to repatriate it or repair it (it ate its water). Current estimates are that it’ll take up to 21 days to get it back. VW are unsure of the customs implications.

    Oh, that’s a bad end to what must have been an awesome trip. Fingers crossed your van makes it back eventually!

    Sorry to ask this again but….. has anyone found the definitive date from which the requirement for the 2 day test changes from  PCR to LFT?  The original announcement from Shapps said somethig like “end of October”. But I haven’t found it defined as 31st October. The Gov website doesn’t seem to clarify it.

    Vested interest as we return into the UK (from France) on 28 October.

    its not been announced yet – the govt are also being hassled by most of the travel industry to give a hard date.

    Apparently there is a shortage of LFT tests in the private sector, because they’ve been focussing on providing pcr tests

    We used Expert Medical when coming home from France, they were pretty good.

    Thanks… I got the impression that might be the case. Just what you’d expect from them…vagueness.
