When do you need a testing kit for travel?

Travel testing kits are, at the time of writing, necessary to travel to and from the UK for the unvaccinated. As taken from the gov.uk website linked above:

If you do not qualify as fully vaccinated for travel to England, you must take a COVID-19 test before you travel to England from abroad.

You are required to take the test up to two days before your flight to England. If your flight spans multiple days, the test should begin two days prior to the first flight. You can use a fit to fly lateral flow for this test.
