(see clause below).
We, along with our service provider partners, will provide the following services to you:
Booking Services: We are responsible for providing you with access to the technology which you can use to book your test. We will process your booking and payment, and when your booking has been confirmed, we will provide you with a confirmation email which will contain:
- instructions on how to access the test site;
- information about what happens at your test; and
- a unique Order ID. This code must be kept safe, as it is needed in order to confirm your identity at the test premises.
When you arrive at the service provider testing site, you will need to provide the Unique Order ID provided in your confirmation email to the service provider reception staff in order to confirm your identity and your appointment. Once this has been confirmed, you will be taken through to the testing area, where your test will be administered by a healthcare professional or self-swabbed by yourself, where available. After your test has been administered, you will be provided with a further information leaflet with information on the next steps and getting your result/certificate.Test Result Delivery:
Your test will be couriered from the testing site to our laboratory partner, depending on the type of service required, normal or fast-track service. Our referral laboratory will analyse your test sample and provide the test result, which will be uploaded to our portal and specifically to your account after the result has been corroborated with our medical team – pending the outcome of your test – any certificates (for example, a Fit-to-Fly Certificate or Test to Release) that you have ordered as part of your booking. In order to register your sample and access your results, you will receive an email with a link for results access and input your Date of Birth to access it.
You are responsible for:
- Making sure that you book your test in line with the entry and exit requirements prescribed by the government of the destination you are flying to so that you have sufficient time to complete your test ahead of your flight. This varies between destinations and can change regularly depending on the number of cases at that location and the policy of the local government. You can check entry requirements on the UK government website at: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice.
- We cannot be held responsible if you are unable to travel as a result of your test being administered at the wrong time to comply with the local entry requirements of your destination and you will not be entitled to any refund in these circumstances.
- Keeping your Unique Order ID safe. You will need your Unique Order ID to access the test appointment. If you do not have your Unique Order ID when you arrive at the service provider site, you may not be able to proceed with your test. If you lose your Unique Order ID, please contact us as soon as possible and we will endeavor to send you a replacement or to otherwise arrange for you to access the service provider testing site. However, we cannot guarantee that this option is available, and you may be required to re-book your test.
- Attending your booking appointment. It is your responsibility to make sure you book your test at a time when you are available. You will need to be at the service provider site on time so that there is enough time to check you in. If you book your test and then realise you are unable to make your appointment, please contact us as soon as possible and we will do our best to change your booking, although we cannot guarantee that we will be able to change your booking after we have sent you a confirmation email.
- Keeping your Unique Order Reference ID. You will need the Unique Order ID number provided to you when booking your test. If you lose your booking reference number, please contact us as soon as possible.
Your results will be made available to you via the MyLocalTest Portal. You will receive an email from us when your results are ready and any ensuing certificate by email.Test Results:
We are not responsible for the outcome of your test. While we and our laboratory partners do our best to make sure that test results are accurate, this cannot be guaranteed, and it is possible that a very small proportion of results will be false positives or false negatives. You decide to travel to your destination at your own risk, and any negative results provided as part of our services should not be relied upon.Estimated Timescales:
When you make your booking, we will provide you with an estimated time for when your test results should be available. Usually this will be within 24 hours after your test has been administered, unless you have booked a fast-track service, in which case your results should be available within the same day. However, these timescales are estimated only, and we cannot guarantee that your results will be available within these timescales.Circumstances outside of our control:
If we are unable to provide the services to you, or if we need to delay your test because of an event outside our control (for example, if there is a change in government regulation regarding the administration of tests, or if one of our service provider partners is unable to perform their role in the delivery of the services to you) then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know. You may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund in these circumstances.
Your rights to end the contract
Your rights when you end the contract will depend on when your test is booked for, whether or not we have issued your confirmation email, and when you decide to end the contract.

- we have told you about an error in the price or description of the services you have ordered and you do not wish to proceed; or
- we are unable to provide the services or there is a risk that your booking may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control (see clause 6.5 above).
- Exercising your right to change your mind (Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013). Because tests are booked for a date and time selected by you, our services are not subject to the statutory right to change your mind that typically applies to the purchase of goods and services.
- Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind, you can still end the contract before your test, but you may have to pay us compensation. Our contract with you is completed when we have finished providing the services to you and you have paid for them. If you want to end the contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, please contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for services not provided but we may deduct from that refund reasonable compensation for the net costs we will incur as a result of your ending the contract.

We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price advertised to you is correct, however please see clause below for what happens if we discover an error in the price of the services you book.
What happens if we got the price wrong. It is possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the services we offer may be incorrectly priced on our website. We will normally check prices before accepting your booking so that, where the correct price at the time of your booking is less than our stated price at the time of your booking, we charge the lower amount. If the correct price at the time of your booking is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your booking. If we accept and process your booking where a pricing error is obvious and unmistakeable and could reasonable have been recognised by you as a mispricing, we may end the contract and refund you any sums you have paid.
When you must pay and how you must pay. We accept payment with Visa, Mastercard and American Express. You must pay for your test at the time of making your booking.
What to do if you think we have charged you the wrong amount. If you think you have been charged the wrong amount by us, please contact us promptly to let us know.Our responsibility for loss or damage suffered by you

Loss or damage is foreseeable if either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, both we and you knew it might happen.
