Take our tests and get ready to travel

Lots of us are excited about booking holidays abroad again. But, before you’re allowed to travel, you may need to prove that you’re COVID free.

We can help. We provide Fit to Fly tests the option to either take a simple swab at home, then send it back to our laboratory for analysis or attend an in-clinic test administered by a qualified professional, located in Marylebone, London.

Our experts will share your results next day or alternatively we also provide rapid same day results – giving you all the documentation you need ahead of your journey.

Reliable results from a reliable laboratory

After such an unpredictable year, nobody wants a pre-holiday COVID test whose results might be unreliable – or late. You want a test you can trust.

HCA UK Laboratories is an accredited, London-based laboratory, open 24 hours a day. We report thousands of tests every day for GP surgeries and hospitals up and down the UK, including world-famous HCA UK hospitals such as The Portland, The Princess Grace, The Harley Street Clinic, The Wellington Hospital and London Bridge Hospital. The home PCR test we’re offering is 98% accurate. 

All of which means you can feel confident that your test will be effective – and your results on time.

Making every step easy for you

The whole testing process is designed to be as easy as possible. Once you’ve booked a test, our customer service team will get in touch to make sure you’re clear on how everything works. Then we’ll send you the home testing kit: a simple nasal and throat swab for you to perform at home.

You can courier your swab back to us or, if you prefer, drop it at a designated point. Then all you need to do is wait for your results, which will arrive via email within 48 hours.

Since travel rules change regularly, please check the website to make sure that our test is the one you need for your particular travel plans.
