I would very much appreciate it anyone can give me some advice on travelling from Scotland to Tenerife. My wife and I are planning to fly with Ryanair from Glasgow Prestwick airport in Scotland to TFS airport in South Tenerife in mid October 2021. We've both been double vaccinated for Covid 19 but we're not sure what we need to have in place and what we need to do to in order to be allowed to fly out and enter Tenerife, and at the end of our holiday, fly back and enter Prestwick. We will be staying at our friends vacant studio apt if that makes any difference.? We look forward to hearing from anyone who has recently travelled under similar circumstances recently. Thank you.

You need to have your double vax certificates on your phone via the NHS app.  You also need to fill in a passenger locator form and present on arrival in Tenerife.  Returning to the UK, at the moment, you need to book an antigen test up to 48 hours before your arrival time back in the UK.  Once you have your negative test result, which you can have emailed to you and show at the airport, then book your Day 2 Randox Day 2 and use the reference of that booking to put in your return passenger locator form.  You can everything on your phone, or as hard copies, but on your phone will be fine.  Hope this helps.

This post that was quoted has been deleted.

I have just come back from tenerife yesterday, and went in June aswell.  On your outward journey your don;t need to show anything to board the flight, but when you get to Tenerife airport, show your double vaccination certificate which is available to show if you have the NHS app on your phone.  That's all you need.

Thank you very much for the correspondence as you're the first person we've been in contact with who seems to give current and up to date advice. I keep getting referred to the Scot Gov website but it's so confusing for us. If you don't mind, I would just like to run through what you've told us and then ask you a couple of final questions. 

1. When we check in at Glasgow/Prestwick airport to fly out with Ryanair, we need to have filled in a track and trace locator form online  and have our tickets and passports with at least 6 months left on them.

2. When we arrive at Tenerife TFS airport we need all of the above plus our NHS Covid 19 proof of double vaccination jabs. 

3. When checking in at Tenerife TFS airport for our return flight with Ryanair, we need ???

4. When we arrive at Glasgow/Prestwick airport we need ???

Can you please fill in the missing info on 3. and 4. Can you also please tell us what the names of the tests we need for coming back, what they should cost and how and when to book them. Thank you so much for helping us out. We're just not used to doing these things on our own.!

1.  Correct - You fill in a PASSENGER LOCATOR form 48 hrs before travel.  You can print a hard copy or have it on your phone.

2.  Correct

3.  Within 48 hours of your arrival time on your return flight back in the UK book an ANTIGEN test at a local Medial Center.  There are loads of them in Tenerife - where are you staying and I'll try and find your nearest - but there are advertisement hoardings all over the place advertising local clinics where you can get an ANTIGEN test - 30 euros each.  They will print the result for you or email it to you so that you have it on your phone.  Make sure you for the test within 48 hours of your return arrival time.  Then when you check in at TFS for your return journey you will be asked to show your negative ANTIGEN test - either hard copy or on your phone.   The Clinic will email your result to you within about half an hour.  You will need to fill in a simple form about your travel movements and Spanish address etc, take you passport for ID with you.

At TFS airport for your return journey you also need to have done your return PASSENGER LOCATOR form.  

4.  When we arrived in the UK - once we were asked to show our ANTIGEN result and the next time - this week - we didn't have to show any Covid test whatsoever, but you will have your ANTIGEN test to hand if you need it.

BEFORE you complete your PASSENGER LOCATOR form, book a Day 2 PCR test to be delivered to you home so that you can do the test at home and send it away for testing by post back in the UK.  Can I suggest toy book your Day 2 test with RANDOX. You'll find them online - £48 per person.

Once you have booked your Day 2  fill in your PASSENGER LOCATOR for and quote he RANDX????? booking reference.  You can have the PASSENGER LOCATOR form on your phone or a hard copy if you can get it printed.

Finally, we stayed in our own apartment so you staying in private accommodation makes no difference to any of the above. 

I do know someone in El Medano who can arrange all of this for you, for a small charge.  HIs Whatsapp / tel no. is 0034 693 80 72 79. His name is Peter Anthony.  His company is No. 1 Excursions and he arranges all sorts of things tourist wise.  Feel free to give him a WhatsApp call, which is free.  Tell him I recommended him, he's a good egg. Good luck

Thank you again for helping us out with all of this, you must think we're a couple of dimwits but it's just that we haven't travelled since all these protocols were put in place and the Scottish Government website is as clear as mud.!! We're going to be staying in our friends apartment which is located just behind the Troya Hotel in Las Americas. We are looking forward to our holiday now that you've given us the information to make our journey less of an ordeal with all of your brilliant advice.

Thank you so so much.

Stephen and Jean.

Not at all, it's all a minefield.  Its only because I've done it myself 3 times recently, so I understand your concerns.  Have a great holiday.  Its a bit quiet over there and not everywhere is open, but enough.  All the best and hope all goes well.  Rita x

By the way, when booking your day 2 test with randox, it asks for a discount code, which you wont have to hand I imagine, but google ryanair discount does and it will come up with FLYRAYANAIR or something like that, apply it and you will get £5 off each Day 2 test.  Cheers.
