This is the cheapest I've found - $90. Anyone got better?

Thanks, that's the 1st almost reasonably priced one I see in Singapore.

But luckily most destinations don't require pre-flight PCR tests any more. Thailand is giving it up from 1st April. Most of Europe doesn't require anything but vaccination.

Yes - Holland and the UK have both dropped theirs (I head there on April 1st). For returning I plan to use a video self test as per https://mainlymiles.com/2022/03/22/sing ... countries/)

Singapore needs to drop the PDT for returning Singaporeans/PRs at least. Test us on return but it's pointless as there is move Covid19 here.

I went to first covid time travel to Europe in July last year, and landing in one of the most strict countries; Germany 1st, and vaccination certificate was all that was needed. So it was mostly dropped long time ago. Some omicron temporary requirements came in December.

Canada dropped theirs as well, seems like they’re becoming obsolete.
