- Suggested companies to use for UK testing for Day Two

As of October 4th, returning from an amber country if you're double-jabbed (and 14 days have passed) requires only a Day Two test booked in advance through government recommended suppliers (suggestions given below). There is also no requirement to isolate on return.
You won't need to take a test to enter Greece if you're double jabbed (and 14 days have passed). If you're not double jabbed you'll need to check government guidance (it's probably a good idea to do this anyway as things can change so quickly).

Address for Greek PLF
The address to put on the Greek PLF is:
Epar. Od. Lefkas- Vasilikis (street name)
31100 (this is the postcode)
When it comes to putting the entry point into Greece, the airport is called Aktio Preveza, so it'll be under Aktio. Confusingly, the airlines call it Preveza but the Greeks calls it Aktio!
Companies for UK testing.
I used BioGrad on my last return to the UK for Day 2 and 8 (postal) testing. I also used them for Test to Release on Day Five (I went to their clinic near Manchester Airport for that). In all cases I got my results within 24 hours.
I used Medicspot in the winter when we had to take tests before we travelled. They did the job but very expensive.
Here's the Medicspot link and discount.
There are plenty of other companies out there offering tests Medicspot and BioGrad are the only ones I've had direct experience of.
