Bag Transport Available on the Portuguese route

Year of past OR future Camino

When we did the Camino francis, we utilized a service for transporting a bag or backpack from one albergue to another (my wife was having achilles problems and we wanted to lighten our load). I realize the Camino Francis is the busiest route, but we were wondering if there is a similar service available if we run into any problems again?

I walked the CP two years ago and the service was not universally available until you near Spain. It may have improved by now.

Hello Bill
In Casa de Azzancha we have that service (we are between Santarém - Golegã / 4th round / on the camino Lisbon - Santiago).
We know that some other local accomodations in the region also do that. In case you need some help please contact us by email.

Hello,
I am walking from Porto to Santiago and I wondered if anyone knew of accomodations/baggage service between the two.
Reason being that I only want to walk around ten km per day and needed to know that there were smaller places to stay along the way that let me do that.
I would really appreciate hearing from anyone with local knnowledge.
Kind regards.

Hi. Can anybody please help my husband and I.
We are planning to do the Camino (Portugues) in December, and this would be our first time. We would be in the middle of the walk on December 25. Would anybody have any idea/suggestions as to bag transporters that might be available during Christmas? We tried Tuitrans but they are not in service during this time.
Thank you in advance.

TuiTrans...they have an easy to navigate website, great reviews, are reasonably priced and will answer any question you may have promptly. Though their name says "Tui", they do cover most of Portugal and then from Tui to Santiago in Spain.

Thank you KJFSophie. We contacted Tuitrans and unfortunately, they said they don't have the service during the Christmas season.

Hi, the Spanish Correos (post office) do luggage transfer from Tui to Santiago. You may have to check with them for the time of year you are walking . They normally do it from Holy Week until 31/10. But in their FAQ page No. 3, they say to contact them for more info outwith those dates: paqmochila@correos.com Is the email address. The website for Correos is: elcaminoconcorreos.com
Hope this is helpful.
Buen Camino

Hi, where are you starting from? Lisbon, Porto, other? December will be cold and probably wet.

https://sinmochila.es/ transports packs from Tui to Santiago. I haven’t used them, but perhaps they can help you out.

Hi Jill. We are flying into Porto. But we are starting our walk in Tui.
December (Christmas season) is the only time we can take off work this year, at least long enough to do a Camino.
I checked the website. It’s in Spanish. I’ll try to ask somebody to translate. Thanks for posting the website.

Hi Alexla, is Tuitrans not operating the whole Christmas season, or just Christmas Day? If it’s just for one or two days, could they not transport your bags one or two days ahead, and for those one or two days you book hotel accommodation, and carry only what you really need, until you are reunited with your big bags?
