Has anyone ever shipped a package containing trekking poles, pocket knife and other items that can’t be included in carry on luggage to a booked albergue in SJPdP?
Have you heard of this being done? I don’t want to check my pack because of a quick plane change in Paris. Also don’t want to have to buy new items on arrival. Is there a service that offers this?

If not the auberge then how about Poste Restante to the post office in SJPP?

The general advice is never to ship anything from outside the EU to inside the EU (because nasty customs complications are likely) and try to avoid shipping anything across borders using the postal system (because of good chances of delays.)

If you are shipping from outside the EC then your stuff will end up in customs. Possibly forever.... Retrieval will be a amusing introduction to French bureaucracy.

If you have booked a through flight your luggage and your connection are the airlines problem, not yours.
