Posting belongings from UK or Porto to Santiago


Time of past OR future Camino
Camino Frances

I am walking Porto - Santiago this summer.
Please could somebody give me advice on how I can:
1.) Post some belongings from the UK to Santiago and collect them 2 (ish) weeks later when I reach Santiago from Porto.
2.) Post belongings from Porto to Santiago and collect them on arrival in Santiago a couple of weeks later.

Thanks very much!
Ideal pocket guides for during and after your Camino. Each weighs just 40g (1.4 oz).
This one is worth a look but there will be others. You'll want their Global Service then store at Ivar's

Technical backpack for day trips with backpack cover and internal compartment for the hydration bladder. Ideal daypack for excursions where we need a medium capacity backpack. The back with Air Flow System creates large air channels that will keep our back as cool as possible.

I would consult @ivar who runs this forum. You want to make sure that your items won't get hung up in customs since you are crossing country borders.

If you ship from the uk to Spain, the receiver will be looked upon by spanish customs as importing goods from the uk. This means paperwork and delays… from Portugal this is not an issue.
Here's a more recent thread

And here's my post from that thread

Tuitrans will deliver directly from Porto to Santiago.

Or I used a company called Luggage Driver to send a suitcase from Lisbon to Santiago, and you can also send directly from Porto to Santiago.
