URGENT TRAVEL NEEDS, NO PROBLEM WE HAVE YOU COVERED
The Avante Test Centres are approved by the UK Government to conduct both ‘test and release’ and ‘general testing’ please see the below links for further details.
Our Locations and Tests
Whenever possible we take your test through your vehicle window, or from an outdoor space. Our testers wear PPE equipment when they take your test to keep your risk as low as possible. If you prefer, we can watch you self-test under our guidance for added safety (we will stand at a safe distance!).

Test To Release
Before you book please check you are eligible by following the government guidance here. At this time we offer PCR testing* for Test To Release, with a turnaround time of 24-36 hours. We courier your sample to a specific laboratory that is approved for test to release testing. Please try to attend our test centre in your own private vehicle, and do not leave your vehicle on arrival. If you are unable to attend in your own private vehicle, please ensure you follow the government’s safer travel guidance, and be aware you must remain outside our clinic at all times and away from others. We will come out to you to test you. You must call us to let us know you have arrived, and when we are ready to test you we will come outside to you to undertake your test, for purposes of maintaining your self isolation.
Pre-Travel PCR Testing
Before you book, please check the testing requirements with your airline and destination country. Typically, countries vary from requiring a negative test carried out within 48 hours to requiring it within 96 hours. Once you know this, choose a time with us that allows as much time as you can before your flight, to ensure our turnaround times meet your requirements. If you are travelling urgently, we recommend our 3-6 hour, or same day tests. Same day tests come back at around midnight each day.
Please call our friendly support team if you still have questions about what and when to book.
Last Minute Bookings
If you are still not 100% sure you are booking the right test, you can contact our friendly support team by phone or email.
Mandatory International Arrivals Testing
Before you book please read about quarantining on arrival into the UK here. At this time we offer PCR testing* for Day 2 and Day 8 testing, either via post or in our clinics. Your sample is processed at a specific laboratory that is approved for international arrivals testing, and can arrange gene sequencing if your test comes back positive. This is to protect the UK from the import of Variants of Concern.
If you attend our clinic, please try to attend our test centre in your own private vehicle, and do not leave your vehicle on arrival. If you are unable to attend in your own private vehicle, please ensure you follow the government’s safer travel guidance, and be aware you must remain outside our clinic at all times and away from others.

Highly professional, nice and helpful. Really fast results. I did a test (PCR) at 9 AM and received the results at 10 PM (Bank Holiday).
Great Clinic, great communication, very quick results for PCR test required for travel. Definitely I will come back if I need! Thank you!
Right from booking my Covid test to getting the result the whole process was very well handled. Staff were polite and gave me both options online vs phone booking when I called first time. Test was conducted in a very professional and efficient manner and results delivered on time. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
Professional and friendly team. They were very accommodating due to constant flight changes and I got my test results within 14 hours. Thank you Dr. Deep and team
Swift and professional service. Met outside, guided to parking slot, verified identity and proceeded with test under supervision. All done within 10 mins of arriving. Excellent all round.
Used Avante Health for my pre-flight Covid test and they were brilliant. Emails were answered really quickly, the admin staff were professional and friendly when I spoke to them. Booking the test online was easy. The test itself felt very safe and the doctor was very reassuring. I should say due to change in government policy I ended up getting 2 tests and the experience was just as good the second time.
