We’re all hoping that holidays are on the horizon and the restrictions in place this year will be the last. This means trip planning can begin and you can start getting excited about the possible getaways ahead!
That being said, going away may not be as easy as it once was, at least not for the foreseeable future. Not only will you need to check your passport is in date, you’ve got your travel insurance sorted and everything is packed, you may also have to provide a negative Covid-19 test or fit-to-fly certificate upon your arrival at the airport.
Getting a coronavirus test will be down to you to sort and make sure you have on the day of departure. NHS testing centres are there for those with symptoms, not for those who need a negative result to go on holiday, which means private testing companies are your best bet. That being said a lot of these companies can charge a lot of money, which may only increase if testing prior to going abroad is enforced for a long period of time.
We don’t want any of our customers to be paying more than they need to, which is why we have partnered with RightAngled, a specialist Covid-19 test provider. They offer an affordable, easy test where you can get results within 24 hours of it arriving at the lab. What could be better? They’re even offering all our customers a 15% discount – so why not save yourself some money? Simply visit their site and purchase the test with discount code ‘TIFCOVID15’ to save 15%.
How does the test work?
Like all Covid-19 tests, a swab is required to determine whether or not you have coronavirus. What’s convenient is that there is next day delivery and you can do the test from home, so no need to travel to a testing centre. Your results are accessible online, so there’s no need for an appointment. If the test is negative you will then be able to access your fit-to-fly certificate which you can either download or print.
My test is positive, what next?
If your test does come back as positive, besides from the health concerns you may also be worrying about what this means for your holiday. Providing you have a Diamond policy with us, be it Single or Multi-Trip, then you can benefit from extra coronavirus protection. This includes Coronavirus cancellation cover, if you or anyone named on the policy tests positive test for COVID-19 14 days prior to travel. For more information, click here.
