You dont need to do this with EasyJet. You print the boarding pass the normal way

I met up with Disorderly and his wife on Saturday evening and they said it was a breeze when they arrived in the morning .

We flew in from Gatwick last week and had no problems at all either with passport control or health check. Well organised and staff ensured that everyone had appropriate forms ready. We were in Terminal C which was taking all international arrivals so was fairly busy. All in all only took 45 minutes from touchdown until reaching arrivals.

At present everyone exits Arrivals via Gate 4 and there is a designated meeting point opposite.

I read a comment on a Facebook group that anyone visiting Majorca a who tests positive must spend their 10 days quarantine in a designated quarantine hotel. I hadn’t heard that before and can’t find anything specific on the Spanish or British government websites. Has anyone any definitive information about this. Surely if you are a non resident home owner you would be allowed to quarantine in your own home?

I would say yes....you can understand them not wanting you staying in 'any' hotel, as you'd run the risk of starting a big outbreak!

Default Return to UK Corvid test

Has anyone had experience of booking a test for return flight to UK yet? I'm just wondering if there is any problem with demand exceeding supply at local level.

Due to a lack of tourists i don't think there are any issues but things can change .

Default Booking Covid return tests in advance

Does anyone know if there is a website or any other system to book in advance the test needed to return to the UK? I'd like to be sure that I can get the tests sorted before we fly out on 10th July.

We booked with “testing for all” after recommendations on this forum. Which? Also said they were the best of the bunch

Advance booking is recommended as they limit the number of bookings

This company will post out a lateral flow test that you take with you. On receipt you book a video conference call, they witness you doing the test. You send them a photo of the result abs you get your all negative email (hopefully) . No heed to go anywhere but you do need WiFi or 3/4G.
