Travel Tips Holiday Pack
The holiday pack is an essential part of your Camino de Santiago trip with CaminoWays.com.
These holiday packs have been prepared by the CaminoWays.com team, after traveling and researching different destinations.
The holiday pack contains all the information you need to enjoy your holiday with CaminoWays.com.
3 months before your trip you will receive an email with your trip preparation documents, then 1 month before departure you will receive your holiday pack. *For last minute bookings: your holiday pack will be sent as soon as possible.
You will receive some of the information by email and some materials and information by post.
WHAT’S IN YOUR HOLIDAY PACK:
You will receive information about your accommodation for each night and their location; as well as details for other services booked for your trip such as airport transfers. You will also get your route notes and maps by email so you can download them (on some routes you will receive a guidebook sent by post, depending route and availability);
This information will be emailed to you and it is very important you download it, read it at home and print it or store in your mobile phone to take with you on your trip.
*We have way points for Garmin GPS devices for most of our Camino de Santiago routes, ask the team if you need them. We can also provide you with a route map you can open in your Google maps app or Maps.me.
Luggage tags for the group (to be attached to your luggage during the trip) and pilgrim passports (and guidebook when/if necessary).
Our walking notes and practical information reflect the route as accurately as possible and are updated by the team as often as possible. Like with any other holiday, in addition to our walking notes, we recommend you bring any additional literature you might have, as well as reading about the route and the area before you travel for additional information about events, culture, etc…
A good starting point is the CaminoWays.com blog, where you can read our latest articles related to the Camino routes, such as interesting facts, places not to miss, upcoming festivals and other updates written by the team each week.
This is the pilgrim passport also known as ‘credencial’, provided by CaminoWays.com. You should stamp it each day during your Camino, tracking your journey’s progress.
This is the tag that will be sent to you and you should attach to your luggage so it can be transferred from hotel to hotel each morning and easily identified by our transporters.
You only need to write your booking reference and contact details.
Our transporters have more CaminoWays.com tags, so if the tag gets damaged they will replace them with your details, you don’t have to worry.
