Holidaymakers face paying hundreds of pounds per trip for Covid tests

British holidaymakers will have to pay hundreds of pounds for Covid tests if they want to take a trip abroad this summer under plans announced by the Government on Friday. Travellers who want to visit countries on the safe ‘green list’ will still be expected to pay for PCR tests on their return to the UK at around £120 each – an extra cost of almost £500 for a family of four. People who have been fully vaccinated will still be required to take the PCR tests on or before the second day of their arrival back in the UK because of Government concerns that ‘green list’ countries could still harbour new Covid variants – Telegraph
