I have the contact phone for Transports Claudine - anyone used ? What’s cost ? How do you pay by card ? Can she be emailed ? I have supermarket bag which be ok for essentials to carry
Just thinking options of heatwave continues

That is a very good idea.
Transports Claudine charges 8 euros per bag per day. I have made arrangement by phone (in French - they may speak English) and given a card number over the phone.

My friend I was with used Claudine last summer. She called and they did speak English. She used cash, but think they may take credit cards, too.

I also used Transports Claudine, (in French, use Google Chrome to translate) though arranged via La Malle Postale.
Take it easy if you can! I walked 3 x 30-35 k days from Moissac in hot weather and had to take a day off in Condom.

I used them from Figeac to SJPP as I injured my ankle. Put stuff into a fabric bag for them to transport and wore my pack with essential items only. Worked well. I phoned them and they registered me on the phone. I emailed them entire planner with accommodations and negotiated a price of 7.50 Euro per day. If you book accommodation day by day, you have to phone them every pm for pick up and drop off details for following day. When you want them to stop sending your pack, you call them and tell them and they take total off your credit card over the phone. I had no issues until after I paid up. We left bags with gite in SJPP for following day, while we crossed over to Roncesvalles. When we got back to SJPP Express Bourricot on Claudine's instructions, had picked up our unlabelled bags and taken them to Spain. Many calls, stress, email history etc later, Claudine accepted, they made a mistake and got our bags back. I will pack even lighter next time, as I will not do this again. I worried every day whether my bag would arrive...but it was a relief not carrying it...

Thanks to everyone for your most useful replies
It appears the worst of the heatwave has passed even some forecast of rain
Anyway have today walked the 34 k from Aire-sur-l’Adour to Arzacq- Arraziguet no problems so keep on as planned with another few 30 k plus days
I know that if I want relief I can arrange for baggage
It’s a great walk
Regards Alastair
