The Xunta de Galicia has published a guide for pilgrims who collect their rights as consumers

The Ministry of Industry and innovation of the Xunta de Galicia today introduced a guide with information on the basic rights of pilgrims, edited by the Administration to "respond to multiple consumer relations" which set along the route.
The department explained today that the publication has an initial print run of 12,500 copies and is published in Galician and 8 other languages, for the "thousands", according to Conselleira, who walk the Camino de Santiago every year and with the goal of pilgrims who "know their rights and what is the most effective way to exercise them."
The guide, which relies on the cooperation of Galego Consumer Institute and the SA Plan of Xestión do Xacobeo, will be distributed through the network of public shelters and may be consulted on the website http://www.igc.xunta.es.

The booklet is divided into five parts. First refers to the various roads of Santiago. The following provides an overview, requirements, recommendations and pricing issues. The third part deals with practical issues on transportation, accommodation and mobile telephony, among other data.
Also, the guide covers the resolution of disputes and consumer reports on the European Consumer Centre. Finally offers a directory with phone numbers, addresses and web pages more useful for people travelling on the Road to Santiago.
