Our antigen tests (also known as lateral flow tests) use flowflex CE marked test kits that offer a combined accuracy of 98.6% accuracy (96.8% sensitivity and and 99.3% specificity - well above the performance standards set by the World Health Organisation (≥97% specificity and ≥80% sensitivity). Our testing kits are approved for self-swab and home use with the ‘CE 0123’ mark.
Covid testing for travel is often time-sensitive, so we include Free Express Delivery as standard. We use Royal Mail Tracked 48 to ship our antigen tests. All deliveries are tracked, and we aim to deliver to you within 2-3 working days.

Yes and no.
Yes - if you are not fully vaccinated or if you have been in a red listed country in the last 10 days prior to your arrival in the UK (regardless of vaccination status).
No - if you are fully vaccinated and haven't been in a red listed country in the last 10 days prior to your arrival in the UK.
We cannot issue a fit to fly certificate to return to the UK if you test positive for coronavirus or if you have any symptoms of Covid-19 (including contact history).
For outbound travel away from the UK, the requirements will depend on your destination country, so please research this at your discretion.
Upon arriving into the UK, you must take an antigen test if you either: 1) aren't fully vaccinated; 2) you've been in a red listed country 10 days prior to your arrival in the UK (regardless of vaccination status). If you're fully vaccinated, you're exempt from this Return To UK Antigen Test.
However, if you're fully vaccinated, you must take a Day 2 Antigen Test.
