Hotels with Covid-19 tests

Countries are increasingly requiring a negative Covid test for arrivals to make tourists’ lives easier (and cheaper). Some hotels are working with biotech companies to create packages that include the test. Markus Wischenbart is glad to share the news that LHVC members will be able to buy and complete PCR tests by state criteria for re-entry after traveling from the comfort and protection of their resort, thanks to a collaboration with Grupo Rescue. We have compiled the offers available from other hotels around the world.

Accor

The hospitality group has partnered with health tech company x.labs to offer Covid-19 testing at all Accor-managed properties in the US and Canada.

How much does it cost?

The test kits are free to US residents “through insurance providers and the Coronavirus Family First Response Act, the Health Care Improvement Act, and the Coronavirus Assistance, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act.”

Atlantis, Palm Superior, Dubai

The hotel has a slightly different approach to the other listed hotels. It is reimbursing the test for those staying five nights or more before 30 April 2021. They allow guests to get back the PCR test cost on departure (for travel to Dubai).
