“No good public health rationale for a 2nd test”: Airline industry doctors join call for PCR test redeployment

Kensington Tours announces PCR test assistance for clients

TORONTO — Kensington Tours says it will manage in-destination COVID-19 testing for all clients in order to help them meet government requirements for a negative test before returning to Canada or the U.S

Canada’s 72-hour PCR test rule came into effect Jan. 7 for air travellers and Feb. 15 for land arrivals.

For itineraries that include two or more countries that may require a negative test to enter, Kensington Tours says it will arrange and manage testing for those as well.



The company says its PCR testing assistance is another layer of peace-of-mind for clients, along with its Risk-Free Booking Guarantee. Clients who book travel before April 30, 2021 can postpone their trip or cancel it for a 100% future travel credit for travel in 2021.

“People should feel confident about booking travel today,” said Helen Giontsis, President, Kensington Tours. “Our new PCR testing initiative gives clients real peace of mind knowing that we will help arrange and manage the testing requirement for them. It takes another potential concern off their plate. And it’s one more way that Kensington Tours is demonstrating that the health and safety of our clients is our number one priority.”
