Your questions answered

 

When should I order my test?

Make sure you order your testing kit as early as possible before your holiday. The sample testing kit has at least 6 months expiry, so you can keep it for up to half a year before you need to travel.

How do I order my home sample collection kits?

If you order a test from Randox, kits are sent out for next-day delivery to your home. As long as you order by 12pm Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays in Northern Ireland) kits will be dispatched the same day with next-day delivery. However, taking into consideration an increased load on the whole logistics network in the UK, delivery may take up to 2 business days.

Do I need to arrange a test for each person I’m travelling with?

If the country you’re visiting requires a negative test result to travel, every passenger on your booking will need to arrange a test. However, there may be exemptions, such as some countries only requiring a negative test result for adults and children age 12 and over, for example. Please check the country entry requirements for more information.

Can I use other test providers?

Of course. COVID-19 tests are available from many different providers. We’re simply recommending Randox to make it the process as straightforward and cost effective as possible.

What if I get a positive test result and can’t travel?

If you get a positive test result, you won’t be able to travel as you’ll need to self-isolate in line with the latest government guidance. We recommend you arrange adequate insurance cover for this kind of scenario, purchased at the time you book. All insurance policies vary so we recommend clarifying what cover is provided for this situation with your insurance company.

If you don’t already have cover, we've teamed up with Voyager Insurance Services Ltd, an award-winning provider of Travel Insurance, to provide insurance that includes covers you for situations where your holiday may be impacted by COVID-19. Click here for more details.

What if I don’t get my test result back in time?

If you chose to buy a test, your agreement will be with the third party testing provider you purchase it from. Please note, we’re not responsible for their availability, content, information, timeliness, products or services. Don’t forget to check their terms and conditions.
