Covid-19 Testing


COVID-19 TESTING AND YOUR TRAVEL PLANS…

We have to accept that, for the time being, if we wish to explore Our Beautiful World, in many cases we need to be in possession of an up to date clean bill of health from an approved clinic. 

This is inconvenient but still, a small price to pay to allow us all the freedom to travel the world and have confidence that we, and our fellow travellers, are in good health.

Your Caribtours documentation will give guidance on the latest entry requirements by destination and relevant to your holiday before you depart. You can also ask your Travel Adviser for more information. 

However, all travellers must be responsible checking the latest entry requirements personal to their circumstances on the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office website. 



Pre Departure Testing: Where can you get a Covid-19 test?

If your destination requires that you take a test for Covid-19 prior to departure, you can arrange a home-testing kit from CityDoc or with remote support from a clinician at Nomad Travel.

For any guests travelling with British Airways, a reduction on these services can be found here for CityDoc, or with code "BritishAirways15" for Nomad Travel.

Airports are also offering testing pre-departure, e.g. at Gatwick Airport. For passengers, to book please have your flight information handy and visit Express Test.

All Covid-19 testing services are provided independently of Caribtours. Please check the specific test requirements for your chosen destination. 

Should you choose to purchase a Covid-19 test from these providers, their terms and conditions will apply. 


Testing Requirements for your return to the UK

All arrivals must take a test up to 3 days before departure and provide evidence of a negative result before they travel back to the UK. 

This will be an additional requirement that applies to all passengers, including those travelling from a Travel Corridor country. You must continue to follow the rules for isolating when you arrive home, even if you return a negative test. 

For more information and the latest updates from the UK Government, including the types of tests that are acceptable, please check here
To find out more about how to quarantine, you can find out more information here and there is information here if you do need to book a quarantine hotel.
The "Test and Release" scheme may also be an option for you on your return to the UK.

Please note the advice and requirements may vary if you are returning to Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland


These requirements are subject to change and do depend on your destination, and route, back to the UK. It is your responsibility to ensure the test meets the minimum standards for sensitivity, specificity and viral load details so you must check with your test provider that it meets those standards. You may not be able to travel if the test does not meet these standards. It is your responsibility to ensure you get the right test that meets the above requirements. Where information about providers of tests is available locally, FCDO travel advice pages will be updated with this information, Caribtours will also be able to assist you. 

Welcome Back to Our Beautiful World. We look forward to sharing it with you

"Always professional, yet wonderfully warm and welcoming, it’s a credit to The Sandpiper’s exceptional staff that so many guests return year after year."

"Harold Shepherd is something of a legend at The Sandpiper - as well as running Harold’s Beach Bar, he’s also the hotel’s unofficial social secretary, arranging sailing regattas, football tournaments and quiz nights."

"Complimentary transportation is provided to The Spa at Coral Reef Club - we can thoroughly recommend the Signature Fresh Lemongrass and Ginger Rub; it’s definitely worth making the short journey."
