What are Day 2 and Day 8 test packages?

Day 2 and Day 8 packages are COVID-19 test packages that contain two tests for travellers returning to England. The Day 2 test needs to be completed 2 days after you return to the UK and Day 8 test must be completed 8 days after you return to the country. If both tests are negative you may end any quarantine you are completing at day 10.

The rules are set to change on 4 October, with the traffic light system being simplified. Get to grips with the new rules before you book your tests.

How much do Day 2 and Day 8 test packages cost?

You can compare test prices in the table above. As these tests are provided by private companies the prices can vary, but the average price for a Day 2 and Day 8 test package is around £180, although packages start from as little as £96.

Should day 2 and day 8 tests be a PCR or an antigen (lateral flow) test?

The UK requires that Day 2 and Day 8 tests both be PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests administered by a United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) accredited provider. Day 2 and Day 8 tests can be administered at home provided they are done so under the instruction of a UKAS certified provider.

It is important to note that NHS tests cannot be used for international travel.
