When should I arrange my test?
As requirements can change, we’d recommend that you don’t start arranging COVID-19 tests until closer to your time of travel, around seven days before departure.
What does the test include?
Once you’ve followed the link to the supplier's website, you’ll find details about what’s included in your test.
Which countries require a negative test result before arrival?
For all the latest requirements both overseas and returning to the UK, please visit our travel requirements page and select the destination you’re travelling to for all the latest information. It’s best to keep checking the page regularly before you travel, as requirements can change. That’s why we’d recommend that you don’t start arranging COVID-19 tests until closer to your time of travel, around seven days before departure.
Do I need to arrange a test for each person I’m travelling with?
If the country you’re visiting requires a negative test result to travel, every passenger on your booking will need to arrange a test. However, there may be exemptions, such as some countries only requiring a negative test result for adults and children age 12 and over, for example. Please check the travel requirements page page for more information.
What if I get a positive test result and can’t travel?
If you get a positive test result, you won’t be able to travel as you’ll need to self-isolate in line with the latest government guidance. However, you’ll be able to amend your booking admin fee-free to a later date by getting in touch with our Customer Service team.
Please note, you don’t have to buy a test from any of our third party testing providers – COVID-19 tests are available from other providers.
Can I arrange my return to UK test locally while I'm on holiday?
Yes, you can. The most common type of return to UK test is the rapid antigen test (RAT), also known as lateral
flow. And it’s widely available in most of our holiday resorts for a local charge. Some hotels even offer an on-site service too. It’s a good idea to ask at your hotel reception first, as they’ll have all the local knowledge you
need. But if you still need some help, please ask your in-resort Customer Helper who’ll be able to point you in
the right direction.
Do I need to take a return to UK test if I’ve been fully vaccinated?
Children aged 10 and under are exempt, so don’t need to take this test. If you’re travelling to the UK and fully vaccinated, you’ll no longer be required to take a return to UK test. However, if you’re aged 18 and over and not fully vaccinated, you must take a COVID-19 test at some point in the three days before flying to the UK and provide a negative result before boarding.
What do I do with my proof of a negative return to UK test?
You don't need to upload evidence of this test, but you do need to keep the proof of your negative result
handy for when you fly home. Make sure you have either a printout or a digital copy to hand, as you'll be
asked to show it to us at the airport before your flight home.
