Our Guide to Randox PCR Tests

Covid holiday packing

As you probably know, the British Government has introduced a ‘traffic light’ system for overseas travel. This means that, if you’re planning to go abroad anytime soon, you’ll need to take at least one PCR test – whichever country you’re visiting. While this might sound like hassle, at Travelbag we’ve made it easy peasy. We’ve teamed up with Randox Health – one of the UK’s most experienced providers of COVID-19 testing – to help you sort out any PCR tests you need. And best of all, with our exclusive discount code, each test will only cost you £43.

So, how does it all work? Well, a member of our team recently went through the whole process – read our handy guide to find the answers to your questions.

 

How do I order my PCR tests?

It’s really easy. I ordered my test kit through the Randox website, using the Travelbag discount code. The ordering process was very straightforward and the kit arrived the next day. Randox also gave me a call a couple of days later to check I’d received the kit and to answer any questions – top service.

When should I order my PCR tests?

If you order your Randox kit before midday (Monday to Friday), you should receive it in the post the next day. But it’s best to order it as early as possible, as the kits can sometimes take two days to arrive.

Was the test easy to do?

The test kit came with detailed instructions on what to do – I found it very clear. You’ll also notice there’s a QR code for each stage which you can scan to see what you need to do. The guide on how to do the swab was particularly helpful, as you can be sure you’re taking the sample correctly.

How do I send off my PCR test?

Before you post your swab to be tested, you’ll need to register your kit’s barcode on the Randox website, along with your contact details. Then, in your pack, scan the QR code to find your nearest Randox Drop Box and use their free postal service. Simply put your sealed test in the box provided, and then pop it in a Randox Drop Box. If there isn’t one near you, don’t worry – there’s plenty of info about alternatives.

When will I get my results?

When Randox receive your test in the post, they’ll email or text you to let you know it’s arrived, to give you peace of mind. You’ll get your results within 24 hours of Randox receiving your swab, but I actually got my result much quicker than that – and it was thankfully negative, which meant I could board my flight! I printed off my negative test certificate and was good to go.

Any tips?

Using the Randox PCR tests was easy and a very slick process. Just make sure you’re organised and order your test kit early – that way, you’ll have enough time to return your swab and get your result before you travel.
