Hi all, we are planning to do a section from Irun to Bilbao in July. We will arrive via Madrid and then take a train to San Sebastián OR Bilbao. I am looking for a way to store our bag we will need for later in the holiday - it could be in Madrid or Bilbao or San Sebastián. What would be your advice to go about this? I was thinking of staying in the same hotel at the start/end of trip and then asking them to store the bag. What would you recommend? Thank you!

Yulkapics,

Welcome to the Forum. Your idea about asking a hotel to store your luggage seems most appropriate. However do ask before you reserve; you might email your request. Larger hotels often have special luggage storage rooms.

Whenever/wherever you do go Buen camino.

Has something happened with your luggage or general advice? I mean I would not be leaving money or iPads, just personal stuff which I would hate to go missing tho!
I used a bag moving company a few times due to a long term back problem. At least twice my rucksack had been gone through. Fortunately I did not leave my valuables in it.

A small lock wherever you can seal compartments is always a good idea

I left a bag of clothes in a hostel in Bilbao. No problem.Bilbao is a good location for transport links so would maybe be a good choice

I did that while in Santander (further along the Norte). We stayed the first night at Hotel Abba, that kindly kept our suitcase for 4 days while we walked. Then we returned to Santander for 1 more day before our flight out.

They agreed to keep our bag because we stayed there before and after the walk. I checked with them before travelling, and everything went well (but I did lock my suitcase with a small padlock!).

Hey all - we walked a small section of Camino - San Sebastian to Deba with my daughter in the beginning of July. We took 5 days to go slowly, have time to have fun/explore and take it all in. About the bag with things we did not need for the Camino - we left it at the hostel Room with a View in San Sebastian where we stay at the beginning and at the end (we took a bus back from our endpoint in Deba). They said they would not usually offer it as a service, but did in our case - worth asking nicely as they have two storage rooms, so hopefully not so much hassle for them. If you are not making a loop, this Camino bag delivery service looks really good - you can add places as you go before 9pm each day, and also if you want to skip a bag delivery, you can put a rest day and add your next destination (has to be within 60km from previous) https://www.elcaminoconcorreos.com/en/services. Hope this helps. Buen Camino!!!
