Hays Travel is offering coronavirus testing kits holidaymakers can pack in their suitcases in a bid to take the stress out of going abroad this summer.

Strict rules currently require anyone entering the UK to have proof of a negative covid-19 test taken within the three days before departure, regardless of whether or not they have been vaccinated.
Hays Travel, the UK's independent travel agent, has teamed up with approved supplier Collinson Group, to provide the government approved tests, that can easily be packed in luggage.
Collinson Group helps travellers take the test during the pre-booked video call appointment and the result comes through within an hour along with the appropriate fit to fly certificate by email.
The test kits were launched this week in Hays Travel's high street shops and are already in huge demand as holiday bookings continue to rise, with Spain and Greece favourites this summer and "bucket list" destinations like the Maldives, Bali and South Africa most popular for later this year and 2022.
"This test kit is ideal for anyone who will be travelling from a resort where the UK requires a test before coming home," said Jonathon Woodall, Hays Travel's Chief Operating Officer.
"It takes the stress out of trying to find a testing centre while you're on holiday; there's help on hand via the video call, and Hays Travel customers can have a discount price of £33.60.
"We're very pleased to be working with Collinson Group and to be able to offer our customers this additional support so they can enjoy their much-deserved holiday to the utmost."
Customers need to allow at least four working days before departure to their holiday destination to ensure the test kit arrives in time and can book directly with Collinson using this link: collinsongroup.com/en/covid-19-testing or via the Hays Travel website, haystravel.co.uk.
