Following! I've been in a few of the company websites but they don't seem to have released the sale of lateral flow tests yet it seems... hopefully later today?

I need this as flying back on Sunday
So far only one of the providers has got the system I. Place available.
Most of them say come back on the 22nd HELLO it’s 22nd! Or only talk about pcrs. I need to book mine today as flying out of the uk today

Chronomics are available now at £23.50.
I presume they're on the list but haven't checked!
I was holding out for randox as they are £21 (such a cheapskate!) but will just book chronomics I think if randox isn't available by end of today

@whensmynexthol1day is in the list. Just seen them. Still few £ more than the one I’ve mentioned

Randox is as well there but I can’t find them in their website.

To be honest I was expecting more providers ! I used qured (£35) and c19(£29) in tbe past to travel back to tbe uk and I was expecting to see them but only 22 providers !

But I know I had seen t4all before in one of these threads and they’ve been good

Have a good trip everyone !

I’m glad there are only 22 providers for now! Although I doubt a few more won’t pop up in the next weeks.

The first time I scrolled through the PCR approved providers, back in summer, was such a nightmare - 400+ companies (half of which didn’t exist or displayed different prices once on their website).

This will save people time and hopefully some money. Where I live we only had 2-3 authorised providers when travelling back last winter, and as a result prices stayed the same as there was no major competition. It also saved us some headaches trying to decide who to go with.

I hope the UK list doesn’t grow anytime soon.

I think it's currently the only one getting so their server has done kaput.. for those of us that travel this Sunday it's not giving us much time to get them

@EileenGC I'm surprised some of them aren't in the list as they've been good during the pandemic.

And annoyed that I can only find 2 providers that are ready in their websites for this. Randox is 30+ despite the gov saying it's 23.

If you are a family of 4, do you need to make 4 separate purchases to get the codes for the PLFs? I am asking about testingforall.

Yes Randox worked. But I wasn't able to buy LTF D2 tests for the children. No option to enter DOB after 2005. As far as I know, children over the age of 6 still need their test. We will probably cover one child each under an adult PLF.

@EasterIssland we're in Paris now arrived yesterday leave to come back to UK on Sunday.

Just been out for the morning, tried again and no cigar on the testing for all website.

At this rate I'm thinking we'll just make up a code so we can fill in our passenger locator form and wing it. I'm not spending the next two days in Paris messing about on my phone!

Randox has worked... managed to book 2 for click and collect at GBP 20 each and then out of stock. Apparently the DOB requested is for billing details, so suppose you order for kids same way. Code for PLF you get via email.

But tests are still available for delivery at GBP 24 each.
