Which? comments as airline trade body calls for CMA investigation into Covid testing prices

Rory Boland, Editor of Which? Travel, said:

“Travellers face eye-watering costs for Covid tests which will price many people out of seeing loved ones or taking a holiday when international travel resumes, so it’s important the government quickly considers steps it can take to reduce costs while ensuring safety.

“Which? has submitted evidence to the Global Travel Taskforce on the high cost of tests in the UK, and solutions other countries have used to bring these costs down.

“The current government guidance also leaves too many questions unanswered about important aspects of foreign travel – so we would advise consumers to hold off on booking a holiday until the details become clearer.”
