mailing luggage

Camino(s) past & future
Nearly every year since 2006, often walking more than one route. 2018 will be Camino #14.

No but I wonder why you're mailing a suitcase? If it's for after-Camino clothes, why not just shop in Santiago? Great shopping. Great prices if you get out of the tourist area.

Personally, I don't want to have to spend my time in Santiago (or anywhere while I'm traveling) shopping for clothes. I have a hard enough time finding things I like at home! That's not to say that I wouldn't buy a shirt or dress that catches my eye while I'm sightseeing. But shopping for everyday items is more of a chore.

Does anyone know the cost of mailing a 10-15kg box or suitcase from Porto to Santiago?
You can probably also hire one of those luggage transfer services so make sure it gets there and compare costs. I think if you are minimal you'll be able to find really cheap clothes especially at places like Primark. They have one in SDC

Im going with just pilgrim clothes in my bag (bag is 65 l and will have space) and will buy some things to get me through 1 more week in europe and usually Primark is my go-to. It may not be everyone's style but when you can buy an entire outfit + undergarments for 20-30 euros, 50 max ( women's sweaters around 10-18 euro, winter coats for 30 euros), it very well may be the most ideal money saver.

Post will run you around €60 is my best guess and a private transfer about the same or maybe a bit less. Private transfer will offer door to door and even date specific options. You will have to contact them directly for long distance transfer, versus stage transfer, but it is available. At least two great places are recommended here. Easy to find in search. And you can likely have it sent to Ivar and p/u when you arrive as well as support the site and Ivar.
