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

    Hi Irene, Spring to Autumn would be the best time. You would need to fly to Porto and you can fly back from Santiago de Compostela. Please let us know if you’d like us to send you a quote and itinerary by email. Kind regards.

  2. By Irene

    We are interested in the Porto to Santiago route. Possibly 6-8 travellers. We are in the beginning stages at this time so please advise on time of year to travel and what town to fly into.
    Any information would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Thank you for getting in touch Kavin, that’s great! The best way would be to fly to Madrid and then either take a connecting flight to Santiago de Compostela or a train to Sarria (approximately 6 hours 30 min). From Santiago we can organise airport pick up or we can advise on bus routes (There is a bus to Lugo city from Santiago Airport and then a local bus to Sarria). Let us know if you need any additional information. Kindest regards.

    Hello Camino Team,

    My Wife and me are first timers and are in the planning stage to walk the 100km starting from Sarria
    could you advise how best to get to Sarria, we are coming from Singapore. Would May / June be a good time to do the walk?

    Dear Ant, thank you for getting in touch. We organise trips for groups of all sizes on the different Camino routes and Via Francigena. Our groups team will be in touch by email to give you more information. Kind regards.

  6. By Ant

    Do you organize group trips please

    Hi Anne, thank you for getting in touch. is a really good place to research public transport options. In this case, you can take the train to St Omer and then to Amiens and from Amiens take a bus to Beuvais airport from there. It is approximately 5 hours. I hope this helps. Let us know if we can assist with your itinerary. Kind regards.

    Hi there,

    I am in the early stages of planning our trip beginning at Calis and walking to Wisques. Can you tell me how best to get to Beauvis airport from Wisques to catch our home flight. We will have walked from Canterbury to Dover also.

    Many thanks.

    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!

  10. 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?

  11. By Maria

    Hi Suzanne, lovely to hear from you, we’ll be delighted to help you plan your Via Francigena adventure. 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

  12. By Suzanne

    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

    Dear Lela,

    Thank you for getting in touch, we only organise luggage transfers as part of our accommodation packages. Kind regards.
