Camino Luggage Transfers

Luggage Transfers on the Camino de Santiago

One of the main concerns for Camino de Santiago pilgrims is managing their luggage during the journey. Our luggage transfer service allows you to enjoy your walk or bike ride without carrying heavy bags. This added convenience is part of our commitment to making your Camino experience unforgettable and stress-free.

What is Luggage Transfer?

Our luggage transfer service ensures your bags are transported from one hotel to another daily, so you only need to carry a small daypack with essentials like water, a raincoat, and snacks. This allows you to travel light and fully enjoy the Camino experience. Please note that the luggage transfer service can only be booked as part of our accommodation packages.

How Does the Service Work?

You start by packing your luggage as you usually would for a holiday. On the day of your journey, you leave your packed bags at the hotel’s reception. The company takes care of collecting your bags from there. While you head out for your day’s adventure, whether walking or cycling, your luggage is transported separately by vehicle to your next destination. When you arrive at the next hotel, your bags are generally already there, waiting for you in your room or at a specific holding area.

This service allows you to focus solely on your experience, taking in the scenery and enjoying your walk or cycle without the burden of your bags. It offers you the freedom to travel light, carrying just a day-pack with essentials like water, snacks, and perhaps a camera to capture the beautiful moments.

By opting for a luggage transfer service, you’re making your trip more comfortable and enhancing the quality of your holiday. You can fully immerse yourself in the adventure, meet new people, and explore new places, all while knowing that your belongings are safe and will be ready for you at the end of each day.

In essence, luggage transfers provide a seamless, worry-free experience that lets you maximise your walking or cycling holiday.

Daily Transfer Process

  1. Packing and Labelling: Each morning, before you start your day, pack your suitcase and ensure it is clearly labelled with your name, the lead passenger’s name, and your booking reference. This is crucial for proper identification and delivery to the correct destination.
  2. Dropping Off the Luggage: Please leave your suitcase at the hotel reception by 8 a.m., where you stayed the previous night. Our transport team will pick it up from there.
  3. Safe Transportation: Once collected, your suitcase will be transported to the next hotel on your itinerary. We use suitable vehicles and handle the luggage carefully to avoid any damage.
  4. Reception at the Next Destination: When you arrive at your next hotel at the end of the day, your suitcase will generally be waiting for you at the reception. You can start and end each day without worrying about extra weight. Note: We guarantee the delivery by 16:00.

Important Details and Tips

  • Luggage Tags: Make sure to attach your luggage tag, including your name, the lead passenger’s name, and your booking code (e.g., CW12345). Our transporter may add a tag to your bag on the first pick-up; please don’t remove it.
  • Weight Limits: The service covers one piece of luggage per person, with a maximum weight of 20kg (15kg on the Chemin du Puy). If you travel with more than one piece of luggage, please get in touch with our team before your trip to book additional bags (additional fees apply).
