Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Driving from Switzerland through France back to UK

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just in case anyone is interested, we drove from Switzerland into France at the Geneva border, a bit of a queue but no checks at all.

Transited through France to Eurotunnel, French border control just wanted passports, stamped them and straight through, no other checks at all.

We uploaded all the docs to Eurotunnel in advance, plf, negative test, vaccine status, they just needed passports as all the info came up on the system.
Slight queue at UK as it looked like others had not uploaded info in advance and hence were taking longer handing loads of paperwork over.

Eurotunnel running one service per hour, once through border controls drove straight through to the lanes, and fortunately the barrier was open and straight on to next train. Very glad of that otherwise an hour in the lanes would have been a chore.

So presumably, you got your Test to Return in Switzerland and it was valid for long enough to cover the travel time to get the Eurotunnel train home? I ask because I assume you did the drive all in one go without an overnight stop? From my reading, it looks like it's not possible to comply with the test requirements unless we drive in one go, so to speak - we usually stop overnight but given the 'test within' entry requirements to CH and the UK, it's currently looking like the only way to achieve a comfortable margin is to drive in one go. Unless I've got it wrong?

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

You have 2 days for the test and it can be a rapid lateral flow (results in 15 mins).
So we got tested in Switzerland and we did stop over in France to break up the journey and were still inside that window.

@ish303 Great, that's reassuring. Thanks. I guess that if we make the CH test later in the afternoon, then the logistics should work for our Eurotunnel slot. Of course, if the current French quarantine rule persists, that may scupper it anyway.
