In order to get traveling back on the cards, the travel agency TUI decided to partner up with the Government’s authorised Covid 19 test provider Chronomics. This move allows travelers to travel freely to some of the UK’s green list countries with a PCR test worth £20.

The starting price of the packages are £20 per person and include a pre-departure lateral flow test, a PCR test on the second day after their return as well as delivery and return costs for the tests. The newly created Chronomics and TUI booking hub goes live on May 10, and from there, customers can order PCR tests, some going up to £120 each.

The government is expected to add countries such as Portugal, Malta, Gibraltar, Iceland and Israel to the green list as well. However, the most visited country by Brits, Spain, is most likely to be on the UK’s amber list along with France, Greece and Italy, meaning travellers will have to do a 10-day quarantine at home and two PCR tests.

The travel agency is set to resume flights on 17 May, as it is expected that soon the UK government will allow travel abroad for non-essential reasons again.
