Chronomics 22 fit to return tests

I have used Qured in the past for my fit to return tests, but Chronomics is now a little cheaper with the BA discount and - more importantly - does not involve the faff of having to organise video supervision of the test.

The Trustpilot rating is not significantly lower than Qured, with most people happy apart from the ubiquitous issue common to many providers of the tests not being sent out soon enough (which can apparently be circumvented by giving an earlier departure date).

Is there any reason why I should not be switching my loyalties from Qured to Chronomics?

I've used Chronomics and uploaded the result to VeriFly with no issues. Would happily use them again.

Ordered mine on Thursday pm arrived Saturday for next weekend departure. Price and lack of video were the deciding factors for me (I got the green package for day 2 PCR as well).

Likewise, we used them this week and everything went very easily and also then used VeriFLY with no issues at all/

Colleagues have used it with no problem as well.

How is it accepted without some form of verification that they saw you take the test? And if the video isn't necessary why does Qured bother with it!?

Some day 2 tests also don't have video verification, Randox being one of them.
And to be honest, even a video sample could be manipulated if you really wanted to deceive the process.

Because the requirements are not clearly defined or enforced and the whole process is just for show?

The requirements dont actually specify if the test needs to be completed under supervision.

Ive also had no issues with Chronomics myself.

Qured would do themselves a massive favour if they removed the video requirement which currently comes at a premium and less conveinence.

I keep getting the name of this company confused with the dark wave band Chromatics...

We liked Qured, but the video appt is a bit of a faff and we almost got caught out with not having an appt time suitable for our needs because I didn't think to book an appointment for our return days in advance. Also, 22 is a pretty good savings on Qured (why couldnt they offer supervised and non-supervised options?) to switch, especially with the green bundle.

Where do we get the discount codes from? I don't recall seeing any communication from BA.

Have also used Qured a few times and find the video a pain too with dodgy wifi, has anyone used Chronomics in tourist airports in say Spain Cyprus or Greece where they may not be as familiar with it as at business airports? Thanks

Chronomics is the partner that TUI use for it's subsidised testing packages so I'd be very surprised if it probably wasn't more well known in those sorts of places!
