We often find pod couriers to be faster than Royal Mail, particularly over the weekend.
What are the specific location details?
The Guildford Test Pod is located in the Regus car park. However, unfortunately there is no free parking at the testing location.
What is a guided self-swab?
There are trained team members at each of our pop-up Test Pod locations, who will guide you through taking your swab by providing step-by-step verbal tips, for a hassle-free sample collection. As our Testing Pods are contact-free locations, our team members will not perform the COVID-19 test for you.
If you are booking a Fit to Fly PCR test appointment at one of the Test Pods, please ensure your destination country accepts "self-collection" PCR tests.
