My father-in-law passed away due to Covid and to go for his last rites and perform the rituals we have to go through these multiple Covid tests when going and on return. The cost is prohibitive and extortionate. The pandemic has hit our income hard and such expenses that have to be made push us into even more debt. Airline tickets are already very expensive. 

Testing is of course extremely important and required to keep our country safe. But all we ask is that the cost is made reasonable. It seems as though the kits required to be purchased for those who have to travel must be done so from CTM North, which appears to be a private company. I just hope this money is going to the NHS as the kits are the same as the NHS kits and not being pocketed by a private company.

Travellers to and from the UK have to pay a hefty amount for Covid tests, £150 for travelling out and £210 on return. It is causing a lot of hardship in these difficult times.

One travels only for essential purposes which in most cases in itself is stressful e.g. for family illness or bereavement. Other countries charge a lot less. The UK government is requested to reduce the charges immediately.
