We are offering Day 2 only tests in-clinic or posted to your home. If you are close to one of our locations or prefer not to rely on the post, you can come into one of our many clinics and take your Day 2 Test. If you live in a more remote area or have a large group getting tested and would rather do it from the comfort of your own home, we are offering Day 2 Tests posted to your home. Both kinds of tests guarantee results within 48 hours of us receiving your sample.

How do I book a Day 2 and Day 8 travel tests?

You can book your Day 2 and Day 8 travel test package on our online booking portal. The date you select needs to be the date of your arrival into England (you can choose any time slot), this is your day 0.  It’s important you complete all mandatory fields on the booking form otherwise your appointment won’t be confirmed.

You will receive a booking confirmation email with testing information and a separate automated email including your unique booking ID. You should receive this email within 30 minutes of your appointment booking, it can often go into your spam folder, if you don’t receive it please call our customer service team on 020 3637 5566.

If you have ordered your test kit to be delivered to your home after your booking is confirmed you will receive your Covid-19 test kits in the post to the address provided. On day 2 (and day 8 if needed) of your quarantine, you conduct a swab sample (using instructions provided) and post it back to our laboratory. Each kit comes with a free postage return label to make this as stress-free as possible.

Once your samples have been processed you will receive a digital results certificate outlining the test you have had and results concluded.

If you have chosen to have your Day 2 test in-clinic, please come into your selected location at the time you have chosen to have your swab taken. Once your samples have been processed you will receive a digital results certificate outlining the test you have had and results concluded.

What do I need to do before I travel?

  • Have a negative Covid-19 PCR result within the 3 days before travel
  • Book a Travel Test for tests on Day 2/Day 2 and Day 8 of your quarantine
  • Complete a passenger locator form (details of where you will be quarantining on arrival) – we provide a unique booking reference number to put on this form.
