Due to recurring back problems it looks like I am going to have to use baggage transfer.
I will hopefully be using Casa Rural's as well as hotels which indicates a possible problem, TuiTrans t&c,s state that there must be a 24hr reception at the places you intend staying.

Can anyone who has used TuiTrans and Casa Rurals etc tell me how the lack of 24hr reception is handled.
Any help and information will be greatly appreciated.

I never had to use baggage transfer myself, but there is (at least one) besides TuiTrans that provides baggage transfers for pilgrims. Take a look at their website. It says they pick up the baggage between 8-9 am and that they will deliver it before 2.30 pm. This sounds as if they don't require 24hr reception.

TuiTrans provided my group of 16 luggage transfer service on CP for 11 days in May this year. At times, some of our folks stayed in AirBnBs where there were no receptions, they needed to pick up room keys from another place.

My experience/impression is:
If the hotels/albergues/furnished apartment, AirBnB, etc., which are well-known on the trail or/and Tuitrans is familiar with, it can arrange for the "luggage" to drop-off at a safe place for pick-up.

The bottom line is TuiTrans is concerned the "security / safety" of your luggage.

As dfox said, It's worth asking Tui Trans on a day to day basis, where they deliver to. They may suggest an hotel where they regularly drop tour baggage and you can just go in and collect your luggage without staying at that hotel.

I use Caminofacil for backpack transfer and they are fantastic! I plan to use them again this October from Porto to Santiago and the Espiritual route.

Thanks to those who have responded so far. Hope to include the spiritual variant so it looks like it’s either TuiTrans or Caminofacil. More info welcome

Have used Tuitrans on Portugués and found them excellent. Very personal service and lovely to deal with.

I checked TuiTrans web site and it’s service page states (

We offer this service from Oporto to Santiago de Compostela, along the traditional route or the coast route, as well as the spiritual route.
)
Thanks to others for their info and recommendations

Hi,

Worked out fine. TuiTrans/Correo said they couldn't do just 1 stage on the SV. the receptionist in hotel in Combarro told me where was no service! Got these details at Hotel Pousada in Armenteira.
May help someone out.
