Collinson has opened its latest Covid-19 testing centre in the UK, located at St Pancras International station.

The facility is located at unit 56 on the station’s Grand Terrace, “on the same floor as the champagne bar”.

It offers PCR, antigen and antibody tests, as well as pre-return video test kits which can be packed into suitcases for in-destination testing with a medical practitioner before returning to the UK.

Collinson said that the number of people taking Collinson travel tests across the UK “has nearly doubled” over the past few weeks, as travellers looks to take advantage of easing restrictions.

Collinson has a number of testing facilities at travel hubs including Heathrow, Gatwick, London City, Luton, East Midlands, Manchester and Stansted airports, as well as at the O2 Arena.

“With UK restrictions removed in their entirety after nearly 16 months, Brits are keen to take advantage of their freedoms and head abroad,” said David Evans, Joint CEO, Collinson.

“But while local restrictions are being lifted, the UK still has one of the strictest travel testing regimes in the world. At Collinson, our goal has always been to make travelling as seamless as possible for passengers, and we know that’s especially important to help industry recovery right now.

“We’re always looking to provide the best experience possible for those needing to test for travel. Our new testing facility at St Pancras International gives travellers a practical and affordable way to meet the necessary testing requirements – and all while making use of the numerous shops and dining opportunities.”
