Covid-19 PCR home sample collection kits

A negative ‘PCR’ test result is required to enter certain holiday destinations. PCR tests are used to check if someone has Covid-19 at the time the sample is taken. They are considered the most sensitive type of test for detecting an active infection and are highly accurate.

We are offering PCR test home sample collection kits for sale in the Scottish Borders from our sister company's travel agency shops in Hawick and Kelso.

Please note the shops are currently closed in line with government restrictions and international leisure travel is not currently permitted.
In the meantime we can deliver kits within Edinburgh - use the link at the top of the page.

The kits are manufactured by Randox Laboratories, which is a supplier to the UK Government's national Covid-19 testing programme. They consist of a nasopharyngeal swab (throat and nose) to be taken at home then secured in the triple-layer packaging provided. Following despatch to the laboratory for processing, results are emailed to the customer.

The kits are priced at £135 each (credit/debit card payment only)

The shop locations are as follows:

Hendersons Travel 18 High Street, Hawick TD9 9EH
Tel 01450 374471

Kelso Travel 16 Roxburgh Street, Kelso TD5 7DH

After purchase, the kit should be taken away for sample collection at home. Full instructions are provided, but please watch this video for guidance:
