We offer a comprehensive range of fast, efficient and affordable Covid-19 tests suitable for travel both to and from the UK.
The tests you need depend mainly on where you are travelling to and your vaccination status. We provide outbound tests (Fit to Fly tests before you depart the UK) and return tests for your flight back to the UK. We offer both Lateral Flow tests and PCR tests.
Whilst you don't usually have a choice as to the type of test you need to travel to a particular place, we think you should have a choice as to how and where you take them. That’s why we offer tests by post taken in the comfort of your own home, or at one of our travel clinics.
When you have placed your order, we will send you an order confirmation email with a link to a data capture form.
Click on the link in the email and enter the data required into the form. If you are booking a Day 2 test, we will send you an email with the booking reference numbers required for your passenger locator form. ‘
Full instructions will be included with the test kit. If you take the test at home, you will need to return your sample to us for testing. Depending on the service you have bought, you either use the prepaid envelope provided or deliver it to the drop box at our Manchester Travel Clinic - 448-452 Chester Road, Old Trafford, Manchester M16 9HD. We are also adding new drop box locations.
