Easyjet customers can now get discounted Covid-19 tests through an expanded partnership with Collinson.

A full list of the prices can be seen in the table below, starting from £32 for a lateral flow antigen test, to £66 for a PCR test and £68 for LAMP tests.

Collinson has launched a new £32 video testing solution for in-destination testing prior to customers returning to the UK, with travellers able to book their appointment and test kit up to three days before departure from the UK, and then complete the test via video consultation with a medical practitioner, with the relevant certification being sent by email.

The group also highlighted its Test to Release service – available after five days of quarantine for arrivals from Amber countries. Collinson says that it LAMP test technology means “significantly faster test results for passengers”, and promises same-day results (before midnight) for appointments made up until 1600.

The discounted tests build on the existing partnership between Easyjet and Collinson, with the insurance provider offering customers a new product including Covid-19 cover.

“We continue to offer a variety of testing services run by trained medical professionals in airports and venues around the world, making the return to travel as easy and convenient as possible.”

Easyjet recently launched its Covid-19 Travel Hub – an online tool featuring an interactive map with details including entry restrictions, quarantine measures, information specific to vaccinated passengers, and testing labs in origin and destination countries.
