Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on November 26, 2021, 02:26:57 PMI'm surprised, I would have thought that Germany would be really efficent at this and make it easy to book.
Quote from: shoulders on November 26, 2021, 03:44:41 PMLess than a month ago the Guardian published an article showing off how more effective and organised their response has been. National stereotypes die hard, I guess.

Quote from: the science eel on November 28, 2021, 10:35:22 AMI wonder what Christmas will look like in London, Berlin, Prague...
Quote from: C_Larence on November 28, 2021, 10:28:38 AMDo you really think they'll close the borders?
Quote from: the science eel on November 28, 2021, 10:35:22 AMNo, of course they won't. I'm pretty sure of that. Nobody wants that and nobody actually needs that. They'll be a tightening up at customs, masks expected everywhere (a particular type of mask in some countries).I wonder what Christmas will look like in London, Berlin, Prague...

Quote from: Johnny Foreigner on November 28, 2021, 04:25:49 PMThe state of Bavaria seems to be as yet undecided as to whether a new lockdown will be imposed; a decision is expected by the 9th. Frankly no point in going if there is.If we do go and, in that case, return on the 28th, we shall have to take a PCR test on the 30th, which is bollocks, since I've booked our annual Hogmanay trip for then, and we would not yet have obtained the results.If you go to a PCR testing centre and take the test on the spot, do you get the result straight away?
Quote from: the science eel on November 30, 2021, 08:56:51 AMWhat fucked me off was getting an email from the company who'd sold me the PCR test advertising a SALE, just a couple of days ago. Like they're selling shampoo. 'buy 3 get one free'Of course they're a business but still...it's all a fucking con, this.
Quote from: Inspector Norse on November 30, 2021, 08:35:12 AMThe government website, meanwhile, lists all manner of PCR test suppliers, with prices from 94p/test. Is this right?
Quote from: sevendaughters on November 30, 2021, 09:21:57 AMI learned about the 2 day test thing on the way to the airport home from a recent venture, scared by the threatening tone of fines, etc. No one checked whether I had booked one, no one gave a solitary shite.
Quote from: beanheadmcginty on November 30, 2021, 12:31:38 PMHas anybody tried just putting a random made up code on their passenger locator form to see if it's accepted?
Quote from: nugget on November 29, 2021, 02:57:33 PMPCR tests generally have to be sent away to a lab for analysis, but I remember that Frankfurt airport had a test centre that could turnaround a PCR test in 35 minutes. Obviously, you have to pay for the privilege. I think Heathrow offered something similar. If you're located near to a major airport, then it might be worth checking their website.
