I will be travelling to Canada and from there to US. The US regulations require a negative Covid test and I am currently researching options to do a test. The Hotel I will be staying in recommended a place (Amani Travel Health Clinic
) but I do not understand the difference between the different options and they also look a bit pricey. So a couple of questions:
Can someone recommend what is the best option for a test - it does not have to be the same place but what would a Canadian typically take to travel to US.
Do the prices listed in this place sounds reasonable?
EDIT: I will be staying in Vancouver the last few days and I will be flying to US
$129 for a supervised rapid antigen test is definitely overpriced.
I went to Shopper's Drug Mart, a national chain; here's a list of stores for a randomly chosen Vancouver postal code, but you could look for stores near your hotel. You can book a supervised rapid antigen test, it costs $40 (plus tax) and takes 15-20 minutes (you might want to allow 30 minutes). They gave me a printout of the result; I took a photo with my phone and uploaded it to the airline's check-in page (and brought the paper with me).
