I am on my 2nd Camino ( currently in Astorga) and have always carried my pack. I am thinking I might want to transfer my pack from Rabanal to Acebo. How do I go about it? Thanks for your help. Dee

Hi Dee,
In all the aubergs you have tags, you put your name on and address you are heading and put 5 euros in the envelope. And it will be there before you arrive. Buen camino Dave

The OP is talking about starting their day in Rabanal. Dee should be aware that Refugio Gaucelmo does not accept those who use luggage transport services and will almost certainly not allow a pick-up service either. If you wish to use luggage transport on that stage then plan to stay elsewhere in Rabanal.

Dee, you should check with the hospitalero if you need to call the transport service, or if the hospi does it, or maybe the van comes automatically every day.

There will often be several choices of transport company. You can book their service online or by calling them. Each company's envelope will have the details. Do not expect transport companies to magically turn up if they haven't been notified. I have seen one pack belonging to a Korean pilgrim which had been left for 2 days in a private albergue until I called the transport company. They told me it was the fifth one that week of packs left without them being notified by the pilgrim.

Camino Frances. I walked from St Jean Pied de Port as far as Mansilla de las Mulas in (May 2019)
I used Correos and highly rate their service. Just search on Google for their contact details. I used to notify them each evening by email or by whatsapp with details of the pick up and drop off points. They always responded with a confirmation msg. You can pick up a tag, ie an envelope on which you write your details and the drop off address and in which you deposit 5 euros. My rucksack was always waiting for me when I arrived at the next albergue.
