Maybe we will get to Crete!

I didn't realise the below

('Entry requirements' page)
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advises against all but essential travel to Greece, except for the islands of Rhodes, Kos, Zakynthos, Corfu and Crete, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

So we could go as long as we can isolate for ten days on return and do all required tests.

Fingers crossed Smile

Yes, I'm hoping for the same for Corfu.

I realise how desperate I am to go when I just accept I will have to quarantine!

Me too. Definitely going to Crete unless it turns red. I've done a spreadsheet for which tests on which days, PLF forms etc.

Yes I'm now fully up to speed on what I need. Two teenagers will have rapid antigen at the airport. My husband and I are vaccinated. I'll order day 2 and 8 for everyone before I go. The only uncertainty is where to get the test done in resort before we come home!

How much are you paying approximately for the day 2 and day 8 test per person?

Thanks. Unfortunately we're not flying with EasyJet but will check whether other airlines offer discounts.

@No1HolidayPlanner There are a variety of companies that will send you a test that you will do pre return to UK. On top of my head Qured (or something like that) charge about £39. You do a test on yourself via zoom call when away and they will read the result and email you the certificate.

Shop around for tests - there is quite a variety of prices and services out there.

We are going to Corfu on the 8th July and the worry over tests has been a nightmare. Two of our under twelve have serious additional needs and one needs sedation to get dental exams. Can we find out about medical eventing for day 2 and day 8 tests in kids? Can we bugger! Waiting for my mp to clarify legislation.

We're going to Zante if flights are still on.
Jet2 aren't flying to Amber list countries. So just waiting for travel review!

We’re (hopefully) off to Zante too! Our 2nd jabs are 10 days before we fly so I keep trying to move them forward a few more days so we can avoid testing on the way out.

Can anyone explain to me what the current requirements are for travel to Crete from Scotland!
I cannot get any clarity on it. Travelling after 4 October.
