The most commonly available Covid tests are as follows:
This is a very sensitive test which is generally thought to yield accurate results. It is more expensive than an antigen test and you may need to wait longer to obtain your results.
An antigen test (also called lateral flow test) is usually a lot cheaper than a PCR and results can often be obtained within 15 – 30 minutes. This type of test is less accurate than a PCR.
Covid-tests required for travel will need to be paid for privately. The cost can differ significantly between the different providers, so it is worth shopping around. PCR- tests are more expensive and may range between €50 – €110. Antigen tests are cheaper and may cost anything between €25 – €45.
|PCR||Range roughly between € 50 – € 110|
|Antigen (lateral flow)||Range roughly between € 25 – € 45|
