Covid-19 Testing

Covid-19 Testing

To meet the various government requirements on testing for international travel, it’s really important that you read the following information and source the right tests and from government approved providers so you can do what you need to do to go on holiday and be able to come back home.

Testing requirements of your destination

There are all sorts of factors which might affect whether you’ll need to take a test before you go on holiday, such as where you’re travelling to, your vaccination status, and age. You’ll need to visit the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) website to find out more and check the latest information for your holiday destination. We recommend that you register for email alerts, as the requirements can change between booking your holiday and travelling.  Whilst it’s your responsibility to meet the entry requirements for your destination, we want to get you away on your holiday without any hassle so have found a couple of suppliers who can help you get what you need. 

There are two different types of tests which overseas destinations may wish holidaymakers to have taken before they board their outbound flight – PCR and antigen (rapid flow). It’s important to find out which of these, if any, you need as if you get the wrong one you may spend more money than you need to, or worse still, it might not be of the required standard to enable you to go on holiday. It’s worth knowing that in some destinations being fully vaccinated might remove the need for some testing.

Keep in mind that, if you need one, you’ll typically need to have had any test carried out, and to have received a negative test result, within 48 or 72 hours of when you’re due to arrive at your holiday destination airport (although this will vary by destination), so planning ahead is crucial. You'll be required to show your negative test result certificate at the airport prior to boarding. 

We’re working with a couple of different providers to offer discounted rates to customers - you can find their details further down this page. Depending on the test you need, where you live, and which UK airport you’re travelling from, one provider may be better for you than the other – the choice is yours.  Alternatively, you can of course, source your own test but please make sure you check it meets the standards required by governments. Please note, NHS tests cannot be used for this purpose.

Requirements for customers arriving back into England before 4 October 2021

The key thing to be aware of is that it is the colour of the destination on the day you return to the UK as well as your age and vaccination status which determines what action you need to take.

Whilst we’ve helped you find a couple of different options, you should note that these services are provided by accredited third parties and not easyJet holidays. Should you decide to purchase any Covid testing services, the service provider’s terms and conditions will apply. We’re not advertising Covid testing services as a travel service or as part of an easyJet holiday and we are not responsible for the quality and timeliness of the testing services. We can’t emphasise enough how important it is that you’ve got appropriate travel insurance in place to meet your needs.
