Camino FAQ: Do you transfer the luggage?

A luggage transfer service is included as part of your Camino de Santiago package with Your luggage will be moved from hotel to hotel, generally arriving at the hotel before the end of your day’s walk (generally by 4pm). When you arrive it is already there!


For your walk, you just have to carry a small bag (day backpack) containing the essentials for the day: water, food, light jacket.

The next morning, just drop your bag at reception (by 8.30am) and make sure the tag with your name is on it. This service covers 1 piece of luggage with a maximum weight of strictly 20kg per person (please note if you are walking one of the French routes, the maximum allowance is 15kg).

Please contact the team regarding any extra luggage you may have for your Camino de Santiago adventure.

Please note additional bags must be booked prior to your trip and they will be charged separately.

For more information about the Camino de Santiago or to book your Camino trip, contact our travel specialists.

If you have any additional questions regarding your Camino trip, please talk to our travel specialists and they will be able to assist and provide all the information required to plan the perfect trip for you

    Dear Kieran,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    We would price all of our bags the same. We can see that you have some quotes requested from us, a member of our sales team will be able to contact you to discuss this.

    Kind regards!

  2. We are a couple planning to do the Camino from Tui to Santigao starting Sep/5, 2019 in either 7 or 8 days. What is the charge for a 3rd bag?

As valued returning customers you will receive 12% off your trip and all future trips with us (CaminoWays, IrelandWays, FrancigenaWays). I’ll get one of my colleagues to contact you and arrange a call to go through those questions and different options. Some of the stages are a bit long indeed but our team can definitely find a solution, either researching additional stops or organising transfers for you. Kindest regards. Maria

    We are two people wanting to go from Canterbury to Aosta starting mid May 2019. These are our questions:
    1. Is there a discount for returning clients – we did the French Camino (Cluny – Le Puy and Le Puy to St Jean Pied du Port) last year under my husband’s name;
    2. Can only one person have their bag carried and does that make it cheaper?
    3. Some sections are too long, that is 30kms. Can we get transport to/from the accommodation so we only do half that distance? We can then get transport back to where we left off so we can walk the second half?
    4. In relation to Q3, are there other accommodations that we could use half way between those long distances?
    Many thanks
