UK Government now advising a PCR test (rather than Antigen as previously required) before returning to UK. Can we get this in Alcala & what is the procedure (timing etc) & price?

Thank you

Willy

The Government’s new guidance suggests all travellers to Spain — with or without two jabs — should take a gold-standard PCR test.

But the advice to take a PCR test on return is not law and will not be enforced at airports — meaning many will refuse to do so.

Further to my post we returned to the UK today and no problem with the cheaper test.

Hi

We are staying in the gran Meliá in November, can we get a rapid flow covid test in Alcala without paying rip off prices at the hotel?

Thanks
