Which? comments on calls for a price cap on travel tests

Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:

“Which? has repeatedly highlighted that the cost of testing is too high, preventing some people from taking essential trips overseas or long-awaited holidays. Every day we hear from more people being hit with the consequences of a travel testing system that is unaffordable for many and not fit for purpose.

“The government must urgently look at ways, including the possibility of introducing a price cap, to reduce the cost of testing, while the Competition and Markets Authority must complete its review of the market swiftly, and take action against any firms found to be charging excessive or misleading prices.”
