Covid-19 testing: your experiencesBack to Forum
I booked with them a couple of weeks ago.
Test on arrival @ LHR T3 forecourt.
Swift, efficient, reliable. £65 a pop.
Used for the day 0-2 arrival from Finland requirement on the Locator Form, and for a subsequent departure within 72 hours to the US.

Sky News article about Express Medicals being removed from the Government approved list.
The most worrying part of all , according to the sky news article, to be included on the Government list,
“Companies on the list must self-declare that they meet the government’s minimum standards for COVID-19 testing.”
It remains to be seen whether passengers who are in possession of the mandatory day 2 testing kits and more importantly codes for the passenger locator form, will still be able to use them.
I still believe the testing regime for travel is a total rip off and very confusing. Passengers are being given options to visit Dr’s and corporate testing centres for huge sums of money, being directed towards the ‘gold standard PCR’ test, when in some/most cases, there are more appropriate and far cheaper tests available.4 Sep 2021
Contradictory info re: test required for flights to the US.
CDC in Atlanta says a Lateral Flow test is sufficient.
Airline and other websites suggest a full PCR is required.
Given the lower cost and quicker results, the former would be much preferable, but would the check-in agent accept it?8 Sep 2021
I’ve started using Collinson. Very attractive prices for fit to fly using the BA20OFF discount code, and a good choice of test centres. I booked their St Pancras centre for a TTR and am extremely happy with the speed of testing and results. I should be getting a FTF test done there later this month.9 Sep 2021
