Hi there

We’re staying in Betanzos on 26 August but the accommodation is not on the Correos list. The nearby private Albergue won’t assist. I read somewhere that people staying in the Municipal albergues arrange to get their luggage left off at private albergues. Would anyone know if there are any alternatives in Betanzos? I’d be so grateful for anyone who’s in the know 😊
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!
Thanks - I’ve done that already. It’s up to the pilgrim to organise an alternative and let Correos know. That’s why I’m asking the forum the question.
I would probably look at the list on Correos where they do drop offs and then contact those establishments to see if they will accept your bag.
 
We are staying at Hostal Portico next month for two days. Walking in the AM out to Presedo and back to Betanzos. The next morning taxi back to Presedo with pack transfer to Meson do Vento. Hostal Portico said that they worked with: Taxi Camino. https://taxicaminoingl.es Hope this helps you.
 
...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).

Walked in April this year and also stayed at Hostal Portico and Meson do Vento. Used Correos
 
We stayed in several places “off Camino” in May and June and used Taxi Camino exclusively with no trouble.
 
I had a similar problem back in June. I had to book private accommodation several kms outside of Betanzos because of limited availability. I contacted Hotel Garelos in Betanzos (where I had stayed on several other Ingles walks) and asked if I could have the bags delivered there, even if there was a small charge involved. They were fine to have the bag delivered there for no charge and, as it happens, advised me that they had rooms available for the night in question so I was able to cancel my reservation at the out of town place and stay in Betanzos. The Camino was organised at the last minute so I had only checked Booking.com for availability and not contacted any hotels directly as I wanted to secure accommodation quickly in each place before booking flights.

The luggage transfer was with Correos.
 
The focus is on reducing the risk of failure through being well prepared. 2nd ed.

That's what it says on St James Church in Dublin (heading for Camino Ingles) but it really starts in Bray - here is my Web-App Irish Camino from Bray to Dublin
