Visa cardholders in Singapore, Asia Pacific and the UK can now book pre-departure Covid-19 travel tests, including RT-PCR and Rapid Antigen Tests, on Collinson's website.

The partnership between Visa and Collinson, a traveller experience and medical assistance group, enables Visa cardholders to book a Covid-19 test at their preferred in-city clinic from a list of testing facilities through Collinson’s website.

Upon completion of their test, customers will receive a test certificate with their PCR test results within 36 hours, and within an hour, from the clinic directly, for Rapid Antigen tests; which if negative, can then be used for travel.

Visa cardholders will also benefit from discounted pricing:
- a 15% discount on all PCR tests in Singapore
- a 10% discount on all PCR tests in the rest of Asia Pacific markets
- a 5% discount on antigen tests in Asia Pacific, and
- a 20% discount for any type of test taken within the UK.

A recent Collinson research of over 400 C-Suite and senior managerial level travel experts globally revealed that over half of respondents (54%) expect robust Covid-19 testing protocols will remain key to reopening borders until end-2022 in Asia Pacific, with a further 26% expecting this until end-2023.
