We are on the northern route and have been using a service called Paq Mochila they transport your bags from city to city along the Camino. Here is the website.

We are about half way and have had no problem with our transport service. www.caminofacil.net. Bags picked up and always at our next place. Good luck to you and your wife with the broken wing.

I used TuiTrans for 13 pick ups and delivery on the coastal route, not one hiccup they did a great job.

Ouch! That's not good news @Patrickbean. If she finds the going too hard, we are here to sympathise and reassure her that she can go back another day when she is better. Lots of us have had disappointments caused by injury only to find that things have slotted into place at a later date. The camino will still be there. And regardless of what happens - enjoy the pastel de nata!

Hi, I've looked at their website and can't see any prices unless I email them. Don't want to pester them, and this might be good info for other users of this forum. Can you give us an idea of what tuitrans costs to transfer one 15kg max piece of luggage on a day by day, stage by stage basis on Portuguese routes? Thanks in advance :)

Hi, try also Sinmochila:
https://sinmochila.es/
They transfer bags from Tui onwards at 5 euros per bag per day.

(I have never used them – I picked up their envelope one day just in case!)

Another vote for Tuitrans. They were easy to deal with and service worked really well.
