I have been asked to explain how I got my £9.95 Day 2 PCR test. So I shall do... I am travelling by car from Germany to Scotland so decided to go via the Amsterdam-Newcastle ferry. So after booking this I went to the UK gov site to book my Day 2 test, The first lot in the list showed £.95 per test but when you followed the link they were for collect only and all were sold out, normal price was £79. So I kept going and fon 2A Covid testing at £9.95, again this was collect only but at Stockton on Tees. This would work as it is only about an hour from the ferry terminal. So I went forward and filled in my details, you have to be patient as it is tries to put you off buying this. I persevered and reaced the checkout and paid my money. Minutes later I received two emails, the first an invoice for the purchase, the second confirmation of mz appointment to pick up the test - and also an apology that due to safety concerns for my safety that they will in fact post out the test to me.
So a win situation for me, the booking reference came a few days later. Lets see if the test actually arrives at my hotel in Falkirk.
