There are lots of essentials to cross off your travel checklist before jetting off on your long-awaited summer holiday. And now, making sure you’ve been tested for COVID-19 is one of them.

To help make it even easier for holidaymakers to book their pre- and post-travel COVID-19 tests for their flights this summer, Boots UK has joined forces with easyJet, Europe’s leading airline. Following the welcomed return of international leisure travel in the UK, the new partnership will enable customers to book or order all the necessary COVID-19 travel testing services required for their trip on the Boots COVID-19 testing hub, via easyJet.com, while planning their holiday.

“This new partnership between Boots and easyJet is designed to make lives easier for people who are traveling abroad this summer,” explains Asif Aziz, director of healthcare services at Boots UK. “At Boots, we are proud of our COVID-19 travel testing offer, which provides a range of options to customers online and in our stores. We plan to work closely with easyJet to help their passengers navigate the requirements around COVID-19 testing and provide competitively priced solutions.”

With easyJet flights serving UK customers from 18 airports this summer, and with 230 Boots stores offering testing services nationwide, easyJet customers will be able to book a trip knowing that wherever they're flying from, they will have convenient access to Boots UK COVID-19 testing services before and after their holiday.

“We’re focused on ensuring travel is easy and accessible for all, and that is especially important this summer,” says Sophie Dekkers, chief commercial officer for easyJet. “We’re delighted to be partnering with Boots to provide customers with more direct access to trusted testing services, making it easier to travel with us this summer.”
