Think they are more expensive than many flights.

Are there no tests that can be done at the airport as you arrive? Go to a secure testing place there first, wait half-an-hour, get the result, then go to bag drop then through perv-groping then into the bar airside? Normally it takes about a couple of hours from arriving at the airport to getting on the plane, so that's adding half-an-hour.

Problem is though, as it is with the home kits, if you have already booked and you're positive that's your holiday gone. Does insurance cover?? Suppose it's not so bad if the flight costs next to nothing and you still have time to cancel the hotel.
I am going to see if Madrid Airport has pcr testing services, the airport is big enough and would be really handy if could do that

A bit off topic, but the uncertainty and risk of spread after June 21 has caused Brighton Pride (early August) to be cancelled, a mass-participation event in a relatively small enclosed area. Maybe the thinking is that people will be safe outside, but not inside and it would be very difficult to control numbers. A disappointing but probably wise decision.

On-topic; I'm more confused than ever, r/e travel to "green" areas, press reports keep saying we will need a test certificate, proof of immunity (recent infection) or proof of vaccination...but the key is "or" so does that mean we can travel with our app ticked - or do those vaccinated still need tests?

If anyone knows the right answer....I don't think the government know??

I believe it will depend on both countries that you're flying to/from, they might have different requirements for entry. So, you could feasibly not have to test on the way out, but have to test before you leave or vice versa.

A while back it was said that for the UK at least, you would have to show a -ve test on the way back in regardless of vaccination status, but noone knows just yet. Final details on the whole shabang are due on the 10th I think (so will be leaked in time for the Sunday papers this week no doubt)

I keep getting mixed up, I keep thinking -ve means you've got it and +ve means you haven't, so you're in the clear, but it's the other way round. Isn't it? Need to unscramble my brain a bit.

-ve test = you don't have it
+ve test = you do have it
-ve feeling = you do have it
+ve feeling = you don't have it
-ve mood = it's monday at 2pm and you're sick of life
+ve mood = it's Friday at 7pm and you're three pints in
