Hi all, help need! Can anyone recommend a bag transfer service from Baiona starting tomorrow? I had something organized with a travel agency but sadly they appear to be a massive scam operator. :(

Thanks so much!

Perhaps once you are on site your host could help you organize a taxi service to carry your bag.

Good luck and Bom Caminho!

Correos - Spanish post office - easy to use website - look for” mochilla”.
You will need to know where you are staying ! I mean, in advance.

The Correos website reads: "We provide our service of transfer of backpacks and suitcases in all these roads from March 23 to October 31 and throughout the year from O Cebreiro to Santiago de Compostela (except 24, 25, December 31 and January 1). "

So while they cover the Camino Francese all year, they only cover the del Norte from March 23.

Hola!

If you need daily bag transfer than I think you already got the answer(s).
But if you need to send a bag frome Baiona to Santiago then simply send it through Correos either "poste restante" (you post this to: Lista de Correos, your name, address of the post office and town) or to Casa Ivar in Santiago for a small fee to hold it for you. You can get all the sending instructions on this site.

Buen Camino!

Update: big shout out to the lovely team at CaminoWays.com - they kindly put me in touch with Táxis Filipe who has saved the day! Highly recommend both Camino Ways and taxisfilipe@sapo.pt 😊😊

I would like to send an actual suitcase from Porto to Santiago. Is there a company that does that? Thank you for any advice!

We used Tuitrans and they were great! Most hostels have information.
