2021 will hopefully be the year that people get to go on holiday, and whilst that is an exciting thought in itself, it can also cause a sense of worry as to whether the spread of coronavirus will continue as a result.
There is a good chance that for the foreseeable future travellers will be expected to show either a negative Covid-19 test or a fit-to-fly certificate at the airport in order to be able to fly. This will be your responsibility to arrange prior to your trip. The problem is the NHS testing centres are not there for people with no symptoms, wanting a test so they can go on a trip. That’s where private Covid-19 test providers come in. They offer tests whether you feel as though you have symptoms, or just want the reassurance of knowing.
These tests however are often not cheap. What’s more, their turnaround time can be slow, which is the last thing you need during the build up to your holiday. What you want is fast results, so your fit to fly certificate is valid when you do fly.
That’s why we have partnered with RightAngled, a coronavirus test provider, which requires just a simple swab. To make it even better, they are offering a 15% discount for all of our customers. Simply visit their site and purchase the test with discount code ‘TIFCOVID15’ to save 15%.
Like any Covid-19 test, you are required to take a swab, however this can be done from the comfort of your own home and you can do it yourself! Simply order before 5pm and your test will arrive the next day. Do the swab and then send it off, and then you will receive your results online within 24-hours of it being received by the lab. If the test is negative, you can then download and print your fit-to-fly certificate.
No one wants to test positive for coronavirus. It’s a worrying time not only for your health but also if you have just spent a considerable amount of money on a trip, you may be thinking ‘Will I get this money back?’.
