Re: PCR Test Costs

Q1.
Can anyone with recent travel experience to the UK please confirm my understanding, the rules seem to have changed since I last investigated:
(1) Entry into UK (before leaving CH) - rapid anti gen test acceptable, cost = 57.50 @ Amavita https://www.amavita.ch/de/info-covid19
(2) In UK, day 2 + 8 tests, min cost =175=225 CHF, https://www.gov.uk/guidance/provider...ional-arrivals
(3) Return to CH (before leaving UK) - rapid anti gen test acceptable, https://www.gov.uk/find-covid-19-lateral-flow-test-site, cost=???
Total = circa 283+CHF

If you go for test-to-release (after day 5) - add an extra????

Quarantine in UK: 10 d (5+ with test-to-release, more if you fail a day 2 or 8 test)
Quarantine CH: 10d (no early release)
Total =20d (15+ with TTR, or more if fail)

Is the above understanding correct?

Q2.
I'd read mixed reports about some of the UK day2+8 test providers (admin fluff ups, tests being lost). Anyone had any personal experiences, recommendations?

Thanks
