From the wording it would seem you don't need to take any test in the UK for a stay of 10 days. I have no idea what requirements the airlines put in place. Probably best to check with them.
They won’t let you board the plane/train without booking your testing package. Better?

What you must do before you travel
Everyone must:

- Take a coronavirus (COVID-19) test and get a negative result during the 3 days before you travel
- Book and pay for a travel test package, which will include COVID-19 tests to be taken on or before day 2 and on or after day 8 of your quarantine
- Complete a passenger locator form with details of where you will home quarantine when you arrive and the travel test package booking reference number

Bearing in mind all the hoops you have to jump to do the above - has anyone else started see reports in the media and the newspapers of individuals ( jumping the queue ) for the vaccine and examples of corruption in the vaccination program rather than go through the dodgy vaccine black market.

Re: re covid restrictions, can i travel to the uk and then leave the uk before 14 day

just wondering like, and oc it's all chit chat speculation, (my answer for example is 'no idea mate') but when do you think the uk and other countries might stop the covid test requirement to enter their country?

do you think the requirement could be in place in the summer still?

I think the only thing we can be totally sure of right now- is that no-one has a clue!

I would imagine it'd be at least until the end of the year for testing and probably a relaxing of quarantine in the summer.

I think it will happen early summer, by then every responsible first world country will have vaccinated all the vulnerable. UK will probably open first as they are so far ahead in the vaccine game, half of the daily cases as France & falling fast where France has stagnated.

Re: re covid restrictions, can i travel to the uk and then leave the uk before 14 day

Here's a list of things you can see & do while staying in one of the UK's Hotel Quarantina's
or failing that, you can always switch on the telly and tune into Professor
Chris ( next slide please ) Whitty, giving some SAGE advice together with Hancock & Boris,
at one of those innumerable Daily briefings from No. 10 about the virus.
