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 :-)

France removing testing requirements for entry for fully vaxxed

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Just seen an alert that the French government will announce that within a week (presumably from today) that there will be no requirement to show a negative test on arrival in France for fully vaxxed travellers (presume triple jabbed). No dates yet, and probably not soon enough for half-term, but definitely progress.

This is not in play yet it seems as eurotunnel still states:
2. Negative COVID tests
All passengers over 12 years of age require a negative result from a non-NHS PCR test or a non-NHS Antigen (lateral flow) test taken no more than 48 hours before travel (find a private test provider).

At French border controls you will need to present digital or paper evidence of the negative result from the private test provider.

Correct. The key word in the BfmTV report was "bientot"...

Not due to travel until March 18th, so hoping this comes in by then. Hoping can go back to normal crossing of just showing passport!!!

@MHskier, Eurotunnel do seem to update their site only when new restrictions are in place, which is probably good as I suppose it prevents confusion.

@backhojo, Presumably that's if they're unopened? They say open them when they arrive to ensure everything is in the box I suspect that'll void any refund.

I've got a large pile on my sideboard, but mainly due to the inability of Randox to respond to my request in December to cancel our contract when the French travel regulations changed and we couldn't travel for our holiday. In the hands of the credit card company now. I'll use them up for work.

Fair to say they won’t ever reply to your email. I phoned eventually and whilst it took 20 minutes to get through to someone; once I had it only took 5 minutes to get my refund sorted. I think they have a rapid turnaround of staff so the chance of an old email being read is minimal.

If people want to wait before buying LFT's, try Randox 'click and collect' ; they use local newsagents/shops ; mine had a 'stash' under the counter (ordered at 3pm on Sunday, picked up at 6PM)

Assuming you paid by credit card, just deal with it via your cc processes to get a refund on an unfulfilled contract.

End of pass sanitaire for bar/restaurant entry in France (and vaccine status checks for UK nightclubbers etc) won't necessarily mean end of requirement to be vaccinated in order to cross borders. I suspect that'll be a requirement from most nations for next couple of years. Nevertheless, the gilet jaunes will be able to party without getting tested the day before, this coming Fools Day.
