can anyone tell me how I can get my luggage transferred from La Coruna to Santiago and stored there for 5 days? I am visiting Europe for 2months and want to spend a week on the Camino Ingles but need to move my excess luggage on.
Thanks
Bill

Hi Bill

I don't know of a service apart from taxis and buses. A taxi will cost about 60€ - 70€ :(

The bus service from A Coruna to Santiago is very good and is frequent - would your schedule allow you to make the journey by bus to drop off your luggage at your Santiago hotal or in left luggage and then return to Coruna or Ferro to begin the Camino Ingles?

If you work out another solution can you let us know please?

Best wishes

John

You can post your extra luggage to the Post Office in Santiago - Lista de Correos (Poste Resante) and they will keep it for 14 days.

Address it to yourself as your name appears in your passport:

B CADDEY
Lista de Correos
15780 Santiago de Compostela
A Coruña

When you collect it, you will have to present your postal ticket and your passport.
 
I was recently walking on Camino Ingles and needed to forward extras to Santiago.

The options seems to be

(1) by taxi - expensive - 65 to 70 euros
(2) by bus - someone will need to pick up the package and store it for you.
(3) by post.

Option (3) worked well for me. Cheap and safe. Cost me all of 8euros to send a 4kg box from Betanzos to Santiago by Express Post. (I had used express post because I had only one working day before I arrive in Santiago).

Should you need to have the things kept for more than 14 days, perhaps they could be sent to :

Ivar Rekve
ATT: [Your name goes here]
Travesía da Universidade 1
15704 Santiago de Compostela
La Coruña
Spain

Sometimes they ask for my contact phone number. If so, please use: (+34) 603 466 490

Prices:
Small box (317x215x125mm): €15,- for 60 days of storage
Medium box (390x290x190mm): €20,- for 60 days of storage
Large box (590x390x390mm): €25,- for 60 days of storage

(info is as per post by Ivar)

Ivar runs this forum, and therefore this should be reliable.

the correos (post office) also offers luggage storage, and there is a left luggage facility at the Pilgrim's Office in Santiago, but I am not sure whether they store luggage overnight? You could e-mail them to ask.
