Airport Parking and Hotels (APH) has partnered with Collinson to open a new drive-through Covid-19 test site close to Gatwick airport.
The facility is located 12 minutes from the airport by bus transfer, and prices start from £40 for a pre-departure antibody test, up to £198 for the two tests required under the mandatory testing for international arrivals.
A full list of prices, along with the length of time taken for results to be available, can be seen in the table below.
APH has also launched a Super Flex cancellation policy at its Gatwick and Manchester car parks, allowing customers to cancel bookings with a full refund up to their arrival time at the car park.
Commenting on the news Nick Caunter, Managing Director of APH said:
“Many people in the UK are eagerly looking forward to a holiday this year and testing looks certain to be a vital enabler for many months to come.
“The Covid testing facility at our APH Gatwick site provides travellers with the option to have their Covid test done at the same location as parking their car, ensuring the start and finish of their holiday is as simple and easy as possible.”
