Hays Travel to offer holidaymakers Covid-19 tests | News
Hays Travel are offering coronavirus testing kits holidaymakers can pack in their suitcases in a bid to take the stress out of going abroad this summer.
Video appointments are provided alongside the kits meaning there is no need to interrupt the enjoyment of a holiday to search for a testing centre.

Hays Travel has teamed up with approved supplier Collinson Group, to provide the government approved tests, that can easily be packed in luggage.
Collinson help travellers take the test during the pre-booked video call appointment and the result comes through within an hour along with the appropriate fit to fly certificate by email.

“This test kit is ideal for anyone who will be travelling from a resort where the UK requires a test before coming home,” said Jonathon Woodall, Hays Travel chief operating officer.
Hays Travel customers can get the test for a price of £33.60.
