With tests costing up to £120 per person, this means a family of four could save more than £300 on their tests for a holiday.

Also working with Ryanair, Jet2 and TUI, the price of the tests for anyone travelling not through an airline or tour operator will pay £48, down from £60.

However, discounted test packages when booked through one of their partners will cost the cheap £43.

It is one of the cheapest on the market for Brits needing a PCR test to go on holiday.

Also reducing their prices are Cignpost ExpressTest, who are offering amber-list Covid test packages for £129, which includes PCR tests for day two and day eight of the mandatory 10-day quarantine.

Many Brits are returning from Portugal today after it was removed from the green list

The cheap deal is only available for this week, following the removal of Portugal from the green list.

TUI has also launched bargain testing kits, with passengers travelling with the tour operator able to book tests from £20.

Destinations which won’t require a PCR test on arrival include Spain, who have no travel restrictions on arrival for Brits, or France, who are letting fully vaccinated Brits in with just an antigen test.

Most countries, such as Portugal and Greece, require a negative PCR test before arrival.

Of course, Brits have very few holiday options right now since Portugal was added to the amber list, in effect from tomorrow.

Just 11 countries remain on the green list which don’t require a quarantine when returning to the UK, with the majority closed to Brits apart from Gibraltar.

Most holiday hotspots in Europe are on the amber list which not only require a 10-day home quarantine, but are also advised against travelling against, according to government advice.

More countries were also added to the red list which are banned from travelling to, including Egypt, Sri Lanka and Costa Rica, joining destinations such as Turkey and Dubai.
