I thought it would be cancelled again but looks like we will be going next week after all. Two of us are fully jabs but other 2 only have one so far annoyingly.
How do you get the return test to fly?

Hiya I'm also going to Menorca, in August. We booked the green test £20 each package through TUI (before it was changed to Amber but same tests needed as myself and friend will have had both jabs) if you are with TUI you could book their packages? Think the Amber one which your 2 people who've had 1 jab will need was £40 each?

We flew home on from Menorca at the weekend. For our fit to fly home tests we used Breathe Assured, took the tests out with us and took them over a Zoom call with a nurse who issued our certificates during the call. Everyone over a certain age (12 I think?) needs to do this even if you have had both vaccines.

We were both double vaccinated so didn’t need to the tests to fly out there, but I think Spain need a negative result within 48 hours of flying whereas many services offer 72 hour results, so do watch that.

Thank you both, we aren’t with tui unfortunately- their prices for tests are very reasonable. Breathe assured was the one I looked at online so I’m glad that worked well for you. Was it worth all this hassle? What was it like out there?
I reckon between the six of us we need about £1000 worth of tests! Bargain, not.

I think the tests will be :
X4 pcr for unvaccinated to go
X6 fit to fly returns
X4 day 2 and 8 tests for unvaccinated
X2 day 2 test for vaccinated
Does this look right?
That’s if it doesn’t all change again of course

That looks right to me, although it has turned amber since we got back so I’m not 100% up to speed. The biggest hassle for us was getting our heads around it all and worrying whether we had done everything right. From the moment we arrived at the airport everything was incredibly easy and I’m so glad we went.

Hope you make it and have a great time.

I imagine menorca similar to Majorca. Fit to fly for return to the uk are antigen 30 euro each, will be able to get there If staying in a resort.

We flew home from Menorca last Wednesday
I booked antigen tests at the Juaneda clinic in Cuitadella online
They cost €30 each and took two minutes, after which we spent the day in Cuitadella which was lovely

It was all very easy and I'd certainly do it again

Enjoy your holiday!

Is it 48 hours or 72 hours for the Balearics pcr test? It’s so unclear

I think it is 48 hours.
