Which? responds to the news PCR tests could be dropped for double-vaccinated travellers returning to the UK

Gareth Shaw, Which? Head of Money, said:

“The high cost of PCR testing has made the possibility of a holiday abroad out of reach for many this year. Any measures which reduce the cost and burden on holidaymakers while protecting public health are an important step in the right direction.

“However, for the time being, people will still have to use PCR tests to travel from and to the UK.

“Which? has repeatedly raised the alarm over the private testing system with the government, which has too often left travellers out of pocket and, in some cases, without a test result. The government’s review into the CMA’s recommendations must ensure safe, reliable and affordable tests are available for all travellers.”
