Recommend for C19

On the advice of the lovely @Delatron I used C:19 for our antigen tests to go to Greece tomorrow.

Spectacular balls up on my part, entered my dd DOB wrong, massive panic when checking confirmation email and spotting mistake but easy to go back in and resubmit - then three hours later got an email from them saying that the passport pic I had attached was for my other DD - blood pressure through the roof!

Resubmitted for third time - certificate in ten mins

Absolutely 1st class service! I've been trawling these threads for advice for weeks so thought this useful to share. Hopefully this time tomorrow will be in Crete!

@NCTDN the tests were £29 (antigen) you do them at home and upload the completed test with your passport. I don't know how much PCR tests are.

I used C19 for antigen before I flew home and agree they were cheap and prompt replying when I too had a panic.

Registered on the site, took the test, uploaded with my passport photo. Then got an acknowledgment minutes later. However when I checked the details the time of the test was wrong so I resubmitted it and then realised that the time had defaulted to UK time. I panicked and emailed them explaining. They emailed straight back said not to worry and I had my certificate within 5 hours of submitting the test.

@silkience
I missed this post but I’m pleased it all worked out for you! It’s so stressful.. What great service though. I was really pleased with C:19.

Have a wonderful time in Crete!

@Delatron this is our first time to Greece, we are absolutely loving it! Food, weather, people all fantastic. I was wondering before we got here if all the stress was worth it, it totally was!
