COVID-19 TESTING is currently available for work or travel requirements. Click here for more PCR test information

The Exeter Travel Clinic (and our Barnstaple site) remain open, but currently not at weekends. Any specific test enquiries should be emailed:

Due to regulatory changes, we are now using a laboratory based in London. To try and ensure a 72-hour turn-around time we use Royal Mail Guaranteed 9am delivery. We will track the parcel to confirm progress and delivery during working hours. As a result of postal times, tests for those travelling on Tuesdays and Wednesdays may not be back in time

Why do Covid tests cost so much?

Recent changes to the Health and Social Care act brought by Lord Bethell, require all healthcare professionals obtain extra accreditation to swab a nose or throat for travel purposes (the same process school children do at home). This accreditation is hugely expensive and unfortunately, unavoidable.

Please note: we are not part of either the test-to-release scheme, or the day 2 and 8 return home scheme,c_crop,w_1080,q_80,g_center,g_faces/misc/default-featured.jpgGap Years icon

Pushing boundaries and seeking adventure often defines that ‘life changing travel experience’.

The Exeter Travel Clinic is here to help you achieve these ambitions and to come back safely.

Our work with some of the UK’s leading gap-year and expedition organisations means you can be confident the advice you will receive is designed around maximising your adventure.

If you want to know about travelling around the world – ‘we’ve been there, got the t-shirt and know how to get the stains out!’

Advice for Parents

The Exeter Travel Clinic know that watching a son or daughter leave for their ‘adventure of a lifetime’ can be one of the hardest moments in family life.

We can talk through some of the major issues you might worry about, such as:

  • Health, Safety & Security
  • Money & Emergency Funds
  • Communication

You can pop in to our clinic or we can visit you at home – contact us for futher details.

The Exeter Travel Clinic know we can’t remove all of your anxieties, but we can provide you with a great deal of reassurance.
