Luggage transfer

I read that municipal auberges will not accept luggage transferred by courier. Is this correct, if so is there a way around this? I prefer to stay at municipal auberges and carry my backpack since they are cheaper, my traveling companion prefers to transfer her luggage by courier.

Some may accept luggage transfer. The transfer service will know for certain which ones accept a pack. Most of the donation based albergues run by volunteers will not and the Xunta albergues in Galicia do not.
 
Very light, comfortable and compressible poncho. Specially designed for protection against water for any activity.

Our Atmospheric H30 poncho offers lightness and waterproofness. Easily compressible and made with our Waterproof fabric, its heat-sealed interior seams guarantee its waterproofness. Includes carrying bag.

€60,-
Thanks all. Can I get luggage delivered from Orisson to Albergue de Peregrinos de Orreaga in Roncesvalles?
 
After the first week on the Frances, I developed a terrible set of blisters (NEVER get a pedicure before you go). I am recovered enough to walk 25K without problem. But, there are NO hills here. I want to use a luggage service for a stage or two before taking up my rucksack. Does a Pilgrim need to contract at the start to use the luggage service or can he/she pay for each stage individually? I will restart in Leon. Thanks.
 
Although I have never used a courier, my experience is that you leave your backpack at the auberge with an envelope containg that day's courier charge.

You can use luggage transport on a day by day basis as you see fit.

You can decide daily. Most services just have tags that you put on your bag, and a website to register it and send payment. Super easy.
