PRIVATE COVID-19 TESTING – WHY CHOOSE NOMAD?

    • Money Back Guarantee: We are so confident that we will get results back to you within 48 hours that we offer a money back guarantee for pre-travel PCR testing delivered to the testing laboratory by courier. If we do not return your results within 48 hours from when your sample is collected by our courier, we will refund the initial cost of your PCR test and associated courier charges. Conditions apply, please see our Terms & Conditions for full terms
    • Turnaround time: With most providers offering a 48-72 hours service at best often longer, we realised quickly this was not fast enough, the majority of countries require a test within 72 hours maximum. Our clients wanted to know if they were ok to travel before they left home, not at the airport. So, we’ve worked hard to make sure our turnaround time is always under 48 hours. Since we have started recording this date last year, our turnaround is actually 25.34 hours. This year we have so far not breached our 48 hour turnaround time a single time.
    • Customer Service: We’re available from 7am until 10pm to help you understanding your COVID testing requirements. We quickly realised how stressful our clients can find pre-travel PCR testing requirements, so we put on extra team members to provide customer support.
    • Couriers/Return Postage: We offer 2 delivery options (available to select during checkout) to choose from. At no extra charge, all your tests will include return Next Day postage labelling for use in your local COVID Priority Post Box. For an additional charge (£50-350), we will arrange a same day courier to collect your pre-travel PCR swab sample and deliver it diretly to the laboratory. We know some PCR travel certificates have tight deadlines, so we wanted to offer clients the peace of mind of a sameday courier.
    • Experience: We’ve been travel health experts for nearly 30 years and work with some of the UK’s largest corporates, airlines and humanitarian organisations. They choose Nomad so that they don’t have to worry about poor customer service, delayed test results and missed flights.

When should I use the COVID Holiday Travel Tests package?

The COVID Holiday Travel Tests packages can be used by anyone required to take part in mandatory COVID-19 infection testing pre-departure from the UK and on arrival to England from Green or Amber list countries. Your pre-travel PCR test includes a travel certificate if your result is negative – a requirement for entry to some destinations. Your post-travel tests are taken on day 2 and day 8 of self-isolation. The tests will track COVID-19 cases entering the UK. If your day 2 swab sample is positive, your sample will be subject to genome sequencing to determine which variant you were infected with.

Which COVID Holiday Travel Tests package should I get?

There are different travel testing requirements depending on the countries you arrive to England from. Check the entry requirements of your destination to find out whether you need to provide a travel certificate at your destination (Don’t need a negative PCR travel certificate? View 2 & 8 Day testing only options). If you do need a pre-travel certificate, next check your 2 & 8 day testing requirements by checking the Green, Amber & Red travel lists for the rules on entering England. The test package you require will depend on which list your destination is on at the time of travel:

Amber List Countries             Pre-travel PCR + Day 2 & Day 8 Testing – £230

Green List Countries              Pre-travel PCR + Day 2 Testing – £160

Please note: arrivals to England are also required to undertake a test at their departure destination in the 3 days before the service on which they will arrive in England departs.

You can choose to use the included Royal Mail Priority Next Day return postage for each of your swab samples or to have Nomad arrange a sameday courier of your pre-travel PCR (additonal charges apply). If you have a tight window in which you need to complete your pre-travel PCR, we recommend returning your sample by same day courier (additional charges apply) as there can be delays to the Royal Mail service. Select Sameday Courier as your delivery option when you Checkout and will will contact you to arrange a courier and take additional payment for courier charges (£50-350)

What are the possible results of the tests?

Your results documents will include your results, which will be either Negative or Positive or Inconclusive. You will be provided with information to help you understand your results and, where applicable, a negative PCR travel certificate. If your day 2 test result is positive, your sample will be subjected to genome sequencing to determine which COVID-19 variant you have been infected with. This information will be shared with the UK government for them to track infections and variants being carried by travel arrivals.

There is a 1% chance your test result can come back as Inconclusive and the lab will inform us that you need a retest. There are a number of factors why this happens and the lab will not be able to be too specific. Inconclusive tests mean the lab cannot prove you DID NOT have COVID-19 when you were tested.

What if I have further questions about my coronavirus test results?

Our expert clinicians are available to answer your questions regarding your coronavirus self-test kit results. Contact us anytime if you need guidance.
