don't forget the passenger locator forms, complete ball ache. We were denied boarding last week.

I bought the spare test they recommend in case of an inconclusive result (nice upsell/scam).
Anyway, once I got my negative result, and with the spare one now worthless out of curiosity I checked what would happen if I dropped the liquid sample onto the test without actually doing a swab. It came back negative.

As mentioned before, the home anti-gen test I did is open to abuse as all you have to do is log the indicator serial number when you start the process and then send a photo of the negative result on the matching indicator, could easily be photoshopped or have someone else take the test, and then you could always alter the pdf report to show a negative result too.
But then again who would travel if they did test positive, that's a pretty cuntish thing to do, knowing you'll be spreading it about on the plane when you should be isolating.
The home test was like pushing a cotton bud around your nose, no bother, whereas the in branch test I had today the nurse proper shoved a thin flexible brush up my nose and twirled it around which was a shock.

Yeah, I can understand people's differing working situations, but if positive you'll have to stay indoors when back to the UK, in which case someone who does WFH could be able to still WFH while abroad. If your job is that important, making contingency plans (take laptop or tablet)for if you get stuck abroad should be part of your holiday plans?
I got Covid travel insurance at £20 to cover any unexpected overstays.
