There are literally thousands of covid-19 testing places and companies in the UK with most pharmacies also offering kits, but anyone looking through the government list will notice most of the prices listed are just not true. We list some of the tests that are reasonably priced and have good reviews, plus details of the offering in the main UK pharmacy chains. Remember you have to get a day 2 test in the UK, you can use a PCR or antigen because all you need is the test reference for your passenger booking locator form.
There is a list of test providers on the UK Government site, however it’s actually pointless paying much attention to the prices listed they apparently start at £3.99 good luck getting it that cheap, you will be looking at paying on average £20.
