The UK government has announced that as of the 24th of October 2021, fully vaccinated travellers returning to England can now take the cheaper lateral flow test as opposed to the more expensive PCR tests.

The welcome announcement is great news for the thousands of families visiting Tenerife during October half-term, as it will greatly reduce the cost of travel. 

The tests must be booked through one of the private providers listed on the UK GOV website and will be available to book from 22nd of October 2021.
