Test to Release booking slots are now available on our website for the week commencing Monday 1 February.

The Test to Release scheme allows passengers arriving in England, who book a private COVID-19 test, to reduce their required quarantine period from 10 to 5 days. The earliest passengers can take a test is five full days after they were last in a location not on the UK travel corridor list. Customers must check the latest government guidance before booking a test to ensure they are eligible for the Test to Release service.  

Customers should ensure they complete the designated ExpressTest ‘Test to Release’ online booking. ‘Test Only’ and ‘Fit to Fly’ bookings are not valid for customers who wish to opt-in to the Test to Release scheme.  

The test is available for £99 per person. Customers who wish to book a test must complete the designated Test to Release booking form on our website.
