UK travellers ‘punished’ by expensive and unreliable PCR testing

The UK is the second most expensive country for PCR tests, with travellers paying an average of £92 (€108) according to research from Admiral travel insurance. For the tests required before and after travelling to red and amber list countries, this means an average additional cost for your holiday of £184 (€216) per person – £552 (€649) for a family of four.

More than 100 of the providers on the government’s list of those which meet minimum standards are charging £200 (€235) or more for testing.

“Our research shows prices for PCR tests vary significantly between countries and UK residents seem to be forking out a lot more in comparison to people living overseas,” says Cosmin Sabru, head of travel insurance at Admiral.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
