With the return of international leisure travel from the UK, easyJet customers will be able to access Collinson tests at discounted prices, enabling people to be reunited with family and friends across Europe this summer, or take a well-deserved holiday. Discounted tests start from £32 for a Lateral Flow Antigen, £66 for PCR and £68 for LAMP tests. All the tests are conducted by trained medical practitioners and are approved for the UK Government’s current mandatory testing.
For in-destination testing prior to returning to the UK, Collinson has launched a pre-return video testing solution. easyJet customers can book their appointment and test kit a minimum of three full working days prior to their UK departure at a special price of £32. Up to 72 hours before their return flight, customers complete their test via video consultation with a medical practitioner, to verify the result and issue the relevant certification via email, all in line with the current UK Government requirements for UK arrivals.
Ensuring travel is easy and accessible for all
Collinson is the only UK Government-approved provider of the ‘test to release’ process that can relieve travellers arriving from ‘amber’ countries from quarantine at the earliest time possible: after they have completed five full days of quarantine. The company is promising travellers same-day results (before midnight) for appointments made up until 4 p.m., meaning passengers are released from quarantine immediately after receiving a negative result, on day five.
Sophie Dekkers, Chief Commercial Officer for easyJet, commented: “At easyJet, we’re focussed on ensuring travel is easy and accessible for all. This partnership with Collinson enables us to provide customers with easy access to more convenient approved testing services, making it easier for them when travelling abroad this summer.”
David Evans, joint CEO at Collinson, added: “With travel opening up for all, we’re delighted to offer discounted test prices to easyJet customers, helping them to fly safely, affordably and in line with the latest Government guidance. We continue to offer a variety of testing services run by trained medical professionals in airports and venues around the world, making the return to travel as easy and convenient as possible.”
Collinson has recently renewed its partnership with easyJet until at least April 2024, providing travellers with a range of relevant and dynamic insurance options, including dedicated Covid-19 cover for all domestic travel.
