The new partnership will enable customers to find information and book or order the necessary Covid-19 travel testing services required for their trip on the Boots Covid-19 testing hub while planning their holiday.
Customers can book the pre-departure Covid-19 PCR Testing Service, which is available at over 200 Boots stores and offers results the next day. Alternatively, they can purchase an at-home self-swab Covid-19 PCR Test Kit from 500 stores or online to be delivered to their home, offering results from 24 to 48 hours from receipt of the sample at the lab. Customers travelling to countries that accept antigen tests can book the in-store Covid-19 Rapid Antigen Testing Service, which provides same-day results and is available at 30 Boots stores.
Covid Test-to-Release scheme
Boots offers a days two and eight post-travel Covid-19 Testing Service for international arrivals into the UK, and is also accredited as a test provider for the government’s Test-to-Release scheme, offering next-day results for those wishing to reduce their home quarantine by taking a voluntary test on the fifth full day after arriving in England from a country on the ‘amber’ list.
Sophie Dekkers, Chief Commercial Officer for easyJet commented: “At easyJet we’re focussed on ensuring travel is easy and accessible for all and that is especially important this summer. We’re delighted to be partnering with Boots to provide customers with more direct access to trusted testing services, making it easier to travel with us this summer.”
Asif Aziz, Director of Healthcare Services at Boots UK, added: “This new partnership between Boots and easyJet is designed to make lives easier for people who are travelling abroad this summer.”
Meanwhile, Collinson 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.
