Similar experience in terms of booths when we crossed early in the morning at start of June. Did manage to catch an earlier shuttle, though.Interesting experience at Eurotunnel terminal yesterday morning. Was there over an hour in advance to catch the 6.50am but there was so much traffic to get in (only two booths open) that ending up missing this train and got shunted onto the 8.18am service.
Only thing that was checked throughout the whole transit through the terminal was my passport. No Covid pass check or health declaration check although I suspect that just don't have the personnel numbers to carry this out.
If bought by credit card chargeback may be an option.DD is going to Ibiza, but because she's too young to have been able to get double vaxed, needs tests prior to flying out, prior to flying back and then day 2 and day 8 after return. The one she doesn't seem to be able to get her head around in terms of ordering the right thing is the one prior to flying back. She's generally pretty smart at online stuff, but now thinks she's bought the wrong thing and they say the tests are non-refundable! How can they get this exemption from the usual distance selling regs?
Of course. I think it’s become more mainstream opinion that they included the Reunion figures in which massively sways the Beta numbers. I’ve not heard a single denial or comment on this, though they haven’t been pushed enough on this.Strong report in Times yesterday that Govt are preparing to change policy on France AGAIN, so it is just amber, not amber plus. Announcement due Thursday....
Anyone know what is happening re Italy and UK entry? Their current regs expire tomorrow and nothing yet on what comes next.
Edit: actually they expire at midnight tonight!
Thanks.Gov.uk, the foreign advice section, gives the latest situation. I'd advise subscribing to the email update service which will send out the latest developments as they happen. I've subscribed for the email updates for France and have been most impressed with the clarity of the section and the email updates.
Correct me if I am wrong; I think you will also need to at least pre-book and pay for a day-two PCR test after coming back to the UK before you travel (I think you will need your booking reference in the passenger locator form before you arrive UK). That's assuming France will be downgraded from amber+ to amber.But when returning presumably I still need to buy a PCR test in France a few days prior?
