Hello all

I just wanted to inform everyone interested on here about day 2 home testing kit suppliers.

After a number of people on this forum recommended a company called Expert Medical i booked 2 kits for my return on 23Oct21 for £28each.

But when i came to fill in my passenger locator form the GOV website it would not take the Ref no provided.It turns out this company was one of many thrown of the lists by the UK  GOV on 03Oct21

Hi Paul, I'm flying back to UK in the morning and ordered my kit on Monday. I duly filled in my passenger location form yesterday and had no problems with my reference number. Expecting the kit to arrive at my home on Monday but had a message to say it was out for delivery yesterday, just hope it fits through the letterbox. Had enough trouble with LATUS Health when I flew home last time they got taken off the government approved list. But it all changes from Sunday.

Use 'Testing for All' a non profit making company, recommended officially and a good price.

I used Expert Medical when I visited the U.K. last month. I never received the results of my test. I decided to do lateral flow tests whilst there, just to ensure I was virus free.

Just fyi, on the site Martins Money Making Tips, there is a list of testing sites to use, and it gives discount codes that you can use in order to get something knocked off the cost - we also used  Randox and we were going by boat but still used the Easy Jet code.
If you have time it would be worth telling them what happened to you so they can alert other people.

Hi Caz, I filled in the passenger location form on the 21st October with no problems and flew to the UK on the 23rd October. Have you had your results back yet?
