I used Zava for initially a 2 day LFT CoVid test returning from holiday Dec 2021. Whilst away the rules changed to needing a PCR. I contacted Zava through the website messaging system. They sent out the swabs for a PCR test and refunded the LFT costs. Everything had arrived by the time we returned home. When we sent the swabs off via Royal Mail we received the results less than 24 hours later. The user website is very user friendly too.
