Travel covid test - cheapest

I'm going to be traveling soon
I know I need a covid test - a rapid test will do the trick.
Since the test's have been available for a long time now I'm hoping there are some "free" tests

I'm located in Zurich --- does anyone have recommendation on locations that have good prices (or even free).

Rapid tests are always free (paid by the government, if you have the Swiss health insurance) - so it is just the matter of paying a few bucks to the pharmacy to print the document about your test result, you can find it for as low as 10 chf. Check some nearby pharmacies on https://www.avkz.ch/coronatestapotheken

Do double-check the requirements of the carrier you are travelling with/country you are travelling to.


Rapid tests might get you on the plane, but are not always accepted for entry at your destination.
