Do you need a lateral flow antigen test that allows you to travel? If so, you've come to the right place, as we have inexpensive lateral flow tests that you can self-administer from the convenience of your home. It is important to know whether you simply need a lateral flow test or a "fit to fly" test. The tests are the same, but the later offers a certificate that states you are fit to fly.

What is a Fit To Fly Certificate?

The airline where you are booking your flight will tell you whether you need a simple lateral flow test, or a fit to fly lft test. The difference is the first is less expensive and the results can be private, whereas the later requires you email a photo of your test result to a lab which then emails back a printable certificate within 60 minutes. A at home antigen test for travel can be as little as £5 for a simple LFT test, or less than £20 for the same test that also offers a fit to fly certificate.
