Demand is high so we recommend you plan ahead and book at least 10 days before your return flight departs, to guarantee getting an appointment at a time and date that will work for you.

"Communication was great. Everything worked out as requested!" - Nadja

Depending on the requirements of your destination country, we offer 4 options: Rapid PCR tests (1 hour results); Rapid Antigen tests (1 hour results); Standard PCR tests (12-24 hour results depending on location); and Combined Antigen and PCR tests 1 hour and 12-24 hour results depending on location).

Qualified medical staff use a nose/throat swab to collect the sample, it is then analysed at the clinic's own labs and you will be notified when the result is ready (negative, positive or inconclusive) by SMS text and/or email.

"Incredible knowledge, the advise you offered was second to none. Test centre was first class and very well organised. Result in less than 30 minutes. Link to download fit to fly certificate was extremely easy to navigate. I would highly recommend. First class service from a first class company" - LORAC20

You can download a certificate for travel in English, Spanish and German, with a QR code. (In case you don't get the notification for any reason, don't worry, you can still check for your results at any time using the code the clinic sends you and the link in your E-ticket.)

We always recommend booking in advance and leaving as much time as possible between the test and the flight, but, if you have no other option, the rapid tests are quick enough to do on the way to the airport if necessary. If you have to do this, please allow plenty of time to receive the results before passing through security at the airport. We recommend giving yourself at least an hour extra in case you have any phone/internet problems, etc.

All tests meet performance standards of ≥97% specificity ≥80% sensitivity, in viral loads over 100,000 copies per millilitre.

 

What test do I need? See links below...

For the Rapid PCR test you pay in full to reserve (administration fee and test cost) and for the other tests you just pay the administration fee to book, and then you pay for the test cost on arrival to the clinic. We will then send you a detailed E-ticket with all the important information you need to know in clear English. (For the Rapid PCR tests we will also contact you for some extra details, such as your date of birth, before sending the E-ticket, this will save time at the clinic.)

"Incredible personalized service to find a rapid COVID test location with all instructions in detail and thorough follow up all the way"- Trip Advisor user

The COVID test itself only takes a few minutes but you should arrive 15 minutes before your appointment and plan for the test process to take 15-30 minutes in total.

We only partner with the best clinics that are working to Spanish/European health standards, but we are not responsible for the testing service itself. If you have any questions, delays or problems with your test and/or results you must contact the clinic providing the service, but we will assist where possible.

We provide a booking service only and the administration fee is not refundable under any circumstances.
