Re: Commuting between UK and Switzerland

I've been back a few times - last trip was a couple weeks ago just before the new 'two test' requirement came into force.

I live in Basel, seeing family in Kent so I took the decision to drive and go Eurotunnel. This actually makes the journey to the UK safer than popping to the supermarket as there's minimal human contact (apart from the gnarly gendarmes nabbing me for speeding) and you are obliged to sit in your car in the tunnel.

I've always stayed in rented places in UK for the quarantine and was taking the '5 day test to get out early option'. However, it's been mentally tough with isolation quarantine at both ends and the testing hasn't been a barrel of laughs either.

With the new 'two test' regs I'm not planning to go back until these are relaxed so I can't offer advice on what that is like, but the driving option might be worth considering depending on where you're heading.
