Quote from: Attila on March 14, 2022, 05:31:48 AMHandy, super thanks!Where are people getting the tests done? That's the other thing stressing me out -- searching around online brings up a lot of fly-by-night places locally to me with prices all over the shop, and no guarantee of getting the results quickly (US requires no less than 24 hours). I'm gonna end up having to go to Heathrow the day before, aren't I :(
Quote from: nugget on March 14, 2022, 08:28:58 AMIf you're going to get it done at the airport, which would presumably be a bit more expensive than the going rate, why not book an antigen test for a few hours before your flight? I live in Germany rather than the UK, but when I flew to the USA in January, I got a free quick-test done at one of the many local fly-by-night set-ups the day before for peace of mind, although I could have easily done it at the airport before the flight.
Quote from: Attila on March 14, 2022, 10:15:47 AMI suspect this is what I'm going to do (and an American colleague, who went through this back in January, was like DO IT) for the peace of mind. It is pretty expensive at Heathrow, but I'd feel better about it -- my flight isn't until 5pm, so I think what I will do is go up and stay somewhere overnight, then go over to T5 early doors the next morning -- you can get a 4-hours one done, so I reckon if I book one in for like 10am, it should give me loads of leeway.The joys of hanging out in T5 for 7 hours...could be worse, I guess!Thanks for the responses, all -- I swear this is more stressful than the actual travel.PS -- A load of pharmacys in London will do fit-to-fly tests for like £39, with results in 30 minutes, but yeah, no idea if they will have stock in, if the one I'm thinking of would still be offering the tests when I need it, etc. I swear, when I went from the UK to Spain back in Sept, I spent a ton of money just on tests and things.
Quote from: nugget on March 14, 2022, 10:48:43 AMI just checked and Heathrow are offering rapid tests for £35 with results within 40 minutes. That still seems kind of dear to me, but from what you've said about the 30-min 'fit to fly' tests offered by London pharmacies (which will be similar antigen/lateral flow tests), it might not be so expensive after all. They recommend booking it for an hour ahead of your planned check-in time. You don't need a PCR test for the USA.
