It seems that the proposals for holiday tests are the same as now, a PCR test

within 72 hours of departure

within 72 hours prior to return

on day two of return

on day eight of return.

Boots and others offer travel PCR tests, aware of the time constraints, at about £100 per test.

 

That's just the UK requirements. Other countries will have their own requirements as well.

The upshot is that foreign travel is going to be completely impractical, regardless of what crap Boris may spin. 

The testing regime is just another corporate money-making scam, just there to enrich some company owners (no doubt friends of the Tories) and to disguise the real levels of unemployment.

Ever feel you've been had?

Special Dispensation in the best interests of Boris Johnson.

Oh I nearly forgot,  there are elections next month. ;)

Thousands of Jairmans invaded Mallorca over Easter, so it is possible. And as I said my colleague is back in Poland visiting his family for Easter with just a free test

It would be a slightly different matter if testing was offered for free at convenient locations such as airports, but of course the UK government expects its population to pay the rip-off commercial prices at the limited number of testing centres. 

It seems that it's fine to offer pointless twice-weekly testing for other purposes, yet it can't throw the airline and holiday industries a lifeline. And the question still comes back to what was the point of vaccinations?

Well we have test centres at most airports, but they are not free

Well, on the evidence so far, vaccinations may have provided us all with a degree of protection and they have been free.

And I can see why countries want to check if travellers might import the virus.

But should travellers or the countries themselves pay for such information, especially when all businesses need support and the disease disappears in the Summer (in all but the ludicrous “models”)?
