Covid test requirements - Santiago to Dublin via london

I hope someone can help me with this. My returning flight with Ryanair from Santiago to Dublin the end of October has been cancelled today due to scheduling changes (I only booked it on Sunday). I couldn't change the date so I booked Ryanair flights to Stansted and from there to Dublin. They were twice the price and now I am worried we will have to present a covid test even though we won't be leaving the airport. We are full vaccinated. Has anyone any advise/wisdom/experience on this matter? I would really appreciate help

Hi an alternative might be to check out flights from Porto - its an easy bus trip from Santiago and Ryanair flies direct to Dublin. I recently booked flights with Ryanair and IIRC there are no change fees just now (at least to the end of this month???).
Hope it works out for you.

Thanks for getting back to me. I have my flights booked. Do you mean I can change my flights free of charge?

I think you would need to check with Ryanair but when i booked a flight last week it said that changes were free of charge if booked before end September.... Now the devil is always in the detail with Ryanair.... Worth investigating anyway

As of Sep 15, 2021, anyone on a flight into the UK requires a negative Covid test, regardless of whether that is their end destination or simply transiting. You won’t have to purchase a Day 2 test, though.

Thanks so much for replying. My outgoing flight has now been cancelled to Santiago. It's turning out to be a mess. Definitely most difficult camino trip i've organised. I'm afraid to book Aer Lingus again but I'm thinking of flying to Madrid and then getting the train to Sarria

The train to Sarria from Madrid goes through Ourense (Sanabres).

You might want to consider that as an alternative, though accommodation on the route looks a bit sparse.

Hi,
I am travelling from Birmingham, England to Santiago next week then by train to Ferrol to walk Camino Ingles. I need to change planes in Frankfurt to fly on to Santiago and am not leaving the airport. I am flying with Lufthansa and the one test covers me. Hope this helps.
Buen Camino

My goodness, my Aer Lingus return flight from Santiago to Dublin at end of October was also cancelled today …. I’m awaiting confirmation of how they have rebooked me. 🤞🤞🤞
I’m considering taking a train or bus to Porto and flying Ryanair direct to Dublin.
What I don’t know is how regular and uncomplicated bus/trains from Santiago to Porto are??……. Perhaps someone can pass onto us the benefit of their experience in this regard…… thanks in advance. Gerard

Use Rome2Rio to check bus/train connections on your specific travel date. We did a 4 1/2 bus by ALSA, but I know there are FLIX busses as well as train combos, too.

Aer Lingus have cancelled all flights from Santiago to Dublin from October 11th to October 30th……. The adventure has begun 😊.
 
Rent a house in Santiago (1 month minimum)
300m from the cathedral and around the corner from the fresh food market in Santiago. Perfect place to tele commute from (1GB symmetrical connection).

I had the same problem several years ago. I got the bus from the bus station in Santiago; buy your bus ticket there ( 20 minute walk from the cathedral to the bus station) to Porto and stayed in a hostel in Porto for two nights. The first day I got the bus to Fatima and had a wonderful day; I always wanted to visit Fatima since I was a child. The flight from Porto back to Dublin is about the same as flying from Santiago. Anyway's , Slainte!

Fly to Madrid. Keep it simple. Good luck.

Dear God, that’s complicated. Did you consider flying to Madrid and taking the train to Ferrol or A Coruna?
