What is the Airport Click and Collect service and how can I use it?


What is the Click and Collect Service and what are the benefits of using it?
Our Click and Collect Service is a quick, easy (and better value!) way for you to get your Day 2 Lateral Flow tests, just order the kit(s) you need online beforehand and stop by one of our conveniently located booths to collect them on your way through.
You can also purchase any last-minute Fit To Fly Rapid Antigen tests you might need directly from us at the Airport.

Please note: The Fit to Fly Antigen stock at our booths are for last minute direct purchases only. Currently, you aren't able to collect your pre-purchased Fit to Fly Rapid Antigen test(s) at the airport - these will be delivered to the address you specified when placing your order. 

  • It's cheaper - Order your testing kit(s) online then simply collect them yourself – no postage or delivery necessary. And what’s more, because we don’t pay any costs for sending out the tests we’re passing on those savings to our customers – that means it’s cheaper for you to use Click and Collect than buying our standard Day 2 Lateral Flow testing kits. 
  • It's more convenient - By using our Click and Collect Service, you won’t need to wait on the postal service any more and, for Fit To Fly, it’s one less thing to worry about when you’re packing your bags – you can perform the test at your own convenience. 
  • It's quicker - You can also order kits and collect them on the same day, so it’s quicker, easier and more direct – just place your order in advance and collect your kit on the way into or out of Gatwick Airport. No hassle, no fuss!

Who can use this service?

Click and collect is currently only available for customers ordering directly from the Chronomics website. This service is being piloted and we'll update as soon as this becomes available for our other customers.

Where do I collect my test/order from?

Airport Collection Points: We have two booths within London Gatwick Airport and you can use either booth to collect your test. Our first booth is located on Arrivals Level (00), within the car rental area. The second booth can be found on Departures Level (02) towards zone B in the atrium, next to the Skybreak booth.
Please see the maps below:

Potentially, Chronomics customers may arrive on the same flight, this could lead to queues at our booths. If you experience delays whilst collecting your test(s) please bare with us and we'll get to you as soon as possible. It's very important that you pick up your order as this is a click and collect service only so, we're unable to deliver uncollected testing kits to you. 

Alternative Collection Point in Wimbledon: We have an alternative collection point in London for customers who don't wish to collect from Gatwick Airport. For more information on the Wimbledon collection point, including opening hours, please click here.
