One wonders if the French will reciprocate and require tests for those crossing into France from Spain.
If driving, a test would have been done to enter France so it would be possible to use the same one if just transiting through France to Spain. Can't think many will be doing this at the moment though.

Ruth, the French already do insist on a negative PCR test from Spain but there are plenty of places you can get one and it is possible to use the same test to enter the UK if you are quick enough. If you are not, then you can get a lateral flow test at the Channel (the quick-result one) because, at the moment, that is all that is needed to enter the UK.

within that article .....
"France has been requesting a negative PCR test from all travelers from the age of 11 since January 31, regardless of whether they enter French territory by land, sea or air."

Many countries in Europe now require a PCR in last 72 hours to enter. UK too, although other quicker tests also allowed.

The trick is that one PCR lets you travel across Europe for the next 72 hours. You can cross a lot of borders in that time. Your just need to put up with swaps up the nose.
