'Flight £20 -Covid test £100' Simon Calder outlines full travel costs facing holidaymakers

'Flight £20 -Covid test £100' Simon Calder outlines full travel costs facing holidaymakers
Speaking from Portugal, travel expert Simon Calder warned Britons coronavirus testing could be more expensive than flights out of the UK. He said his flight to the Azores “cost £25” but the test “cost £100”. His comments come as he gave travel advice to those desperate to get away from the UK into the sun this summer. But he warned of the mounting paperwork involved with travelling during Covid, even in countries being listed on the ‘green list’ which means you do not have to quarantine on arrival or return.
Calder told the show: “We had this silly situation where Friday afternoon the Portuguese said ok Brits you can come in but by the way if you are booked on Monday’s fight you better get your act together because we are going to need a negative PCR test.

“So I was running around at the weekend down at Heathrow because they guaranteed that they would get the results back to me.”

The travel journalist added: “And the flight cost £25, the test cost £100.

“There is something gone wrong there.”

Mr Calder also warned Brits that the paperwork for holidays must not be underestimated.

He said: “The only cloud on the horizon is that for going back, I have got to start getting all the forms in place.

“Tests before departure, book a test before arrival, fill in a passenger locator form.

“I’ve been to the Soviet Union and honestly it was a lot easier than just coming back into my own country after this!”

Portugal has been listed as a ‘green list’ destination for Brits meaning you do not need to quarantine on arrival or return from holiday – which makes it a desirable option for British holidaymakers who want to escape the UK for a break.

But the country has some of the strictest Covid restrictions, similar to Spain and Italy.

Masks and face coverings are mandatory indoors and outdoors, on public transport and UK holidaymakers are subject to the local rules.

Punters must also wear a mask when entering or leaving the beach in Portugal – if they don’t follow these rules they face a massive €1,000 fine.



Other green list countries include Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Israel.

Foreign travel reopened on May 17 along with other restrictions being lifted in the UK, such as indoor hospitality and an end to the overnight stay ban.

And a huge 20 flights from the UK landed in Faro, Portugal on Monday morning bringing sun chasing Britons into the country for a much-needed holiday.

Countries labelled as ‘amber’ and ‘red’ on the UK Government’s traffic light system’ remain virtually off-limits for Britons as they are countries with high covid rates.

Travellers to red list countries have to quarantine in government-provided hotels at a cost of around £1,750 per head – covering food, accommodation, transport, and testing.

Royal protocol means Kate Middleton must pack as many as ’20 suitcases for three-day trip'

Royal protocol means Kate Middleton must pack as many as ’20 suitcases for three-day trip'
The Duchess of Cambridge is no stranger to travel, journeying around the world for royal duties, as well as in her leisure time. Her entourage is often seen carrying her many bags to and from flights when she jets off on international ventures.
However, according to insiders, it isn’t only foreign travels that see the Duchess piling up the suitcases.

In fact, even when going on shorter journeys around the UK, Kate packs more suitcases than the average traveller.

Carole Malone, journalist and commentator, explained Prince William’s wife has been known to take around “20 suitcases for a three-day trip”.

However, this isn’t necessarily because she isn’t able to pack light but rather due to some strict royal protocols she must adhere to when representing the Royal Family.

“For Kate when she goes away for three days its 20 cases.”

When travelling abroad, the Duchess has been known to go to extreme lengths to ensure all of her garments stay in one piece.

This is particularly important then she has gowns for state dinners with her.

According to royal correspondent Emily Andrews she has been on aeroplanes where the Duchess’ dresses get their own seat – sometimes even an entire row.

“When it’s small charter planes and there is space, her clothes do have their own row,” said The Sun’s Royal Correspondent Emily Andrews.

“This happened on a private plane we took in India to Kaziranga National Park.

“Natasha Archer [Kate’s stylist] brought all her dresses on and laid them over an entire row.”

“Obviously when we go to the airports, especially when it’s hand luggage only, we’re trying to cram all our toiletries into that plastic bag,” she said when interviewed for a previous Channel 5 documentary, Secrets of the Royal Flight.

“[Kate’s dresses] are not going to be shoved in the hole just to be squashed by everyone else’s.”

Alongside laying out important garments, the Duchess also has some special ways of packing to ensure her clothes arrive in one piece.

Often she tries to prioritise packing items made from “wrinkle-free” fabrics.

“All the Duchess or her ‘people’ have to do is familiarise themselves with the best wrinkle-free fabrics,” former creative director of Mulberry, Scott Henshall, told MailOnline.

“Typically synthetic fabrics such as polyester, nylon, acrylic and olefin have a natural resistance to wrinkles and a greater stability since they do not absorb water as efficiently.”
