Rory Boland, Which? Travel Editor, said:
“It’s clear that the government has been given multiple warnings about the many problems with the private Covid travel testing system but didn’t act fast enough.
“The result is thousands of people who have already been ripped off and many more who will have been unable to reunite with loved ones overseas or take a holiday because of the prohibitively high cost of tests.
“The priority for government and regulators must now be to come up with solutions. This should include considering a price cap to cut the cost of tests, and the Competition and Markets Authority should take action against any firms found to be charging excessive or misleading prices.”
