UK government set to publish its much-anticipated traffic light system
Coronavirus tests for holiday goers could be as low as £20 under plans revealed today that are designed to encourage bookings.
Tui, the UK-based tour operator, said it would cut the price of PCR tests by more than 50% as concerns were raised over the cost of tests stopping people from booking vacations abroad.
The company will manufacture a number of packages to be distributed to passengers as of Monday, including one for £20 for people returning to the UK from “green” listed countries.
The package will consist of a rapid lateral flow test to be taken prior to boarding a UK-bound flight, in addition to a PCR test to be used within two days of getting back into the country.
Previous PCR tests for travellers have been priced at £45 or more.
The UK government is set to publish its much-anticipated traffic light system for overseas travel, as well as lifting the ban on foreign holidays.
As of May 17, holidaymakers will be able to visit a select group of “green” countries without needing to quarantine for up to ten days when they return to England.
