Testing is vital before heading anywhere, although the system can seem a tad confusing at times.
It’s important to remember that PCR testing remains free for those who are displaying symptoms of Covid-19.
Testing in order to travel, however, comes at a cost – and this leads to an additional cost on top of your holiday, reports Herts Live.
Costs of tests, and which countries are on the green, amber and red list, can always change, so make sure you check with your individual airline before travelling.
Here are the latest costs, correct at the time of writing.
Jet2 offers a number of options for customers, with discount codes for tests from suppliers Collinson and Randox.
The price of your tests really depend on where you’re travelling to, so it’s important to check before travel.
PCR tests start at £43 each, and lateral flow and antigen tests are also available.

EasyJet says the key thing to be aware of is that it’s the colour of the destination on the day you return to the UK, as well as your age and vaccination status, which determines what action you need to take.
The airline is offering discounted tests from Randox and Collinson, which will mean tests start at £43 and £55.20 respectively for a pre-travel PCR test.
