Where to order lateral flow home test kits for COVID-19 online (not for travel)

Can't get free NHS lateral flow tests but still want to check yourself? Here are the online stores where you can buy packs of home testing kits and get them delivered to your door.

How much does a lateral flow test cost?

Prices for an individual non-travel lateral flow test start at £1.89 (at Lloyds Pharmacy online). If you buy a multi-pack, they’re slightly cheaper per test. Lots of high street and online pharmacies and other providers are now selling lateral flow tests for use at home, both individually and in a pack, since the government announced changes to who is eligible to get free lateral flow tests. Some online providers give you a discount on your first order, and some charge for delivery unless you spend over a certain amount.

About COVID-19 home tests

Rapid antigen (lateral flow) self-test kits are the fastest way to detect COVID-19. Unlike a PCR test conducted at a clinic, rapid antigen tests can be done at home and you don’t need to send the sample to a lab. With rapid tests, you just put your swab – either just a nose swab or a throat and nose swab, depending on the test – into a chemical solution, then put a few drops on to the test and wait for the results to show up. Results usually take less than 20 minutes. These tests are not as accurate as PCR tests, with a greater possibility of false negative results, but they’ve become an invaluable tool in reducing the number of individuals who inadvertently pass on COVID-19.
