Hello all.
Where can one rent a wheelchair to use in the last 100km of the Camino Frances?
There is someone in our traveling party who will need a wheelchair. Her husband prefers not to bring one from the U.S. so he is looking for wheelchair hire shops.
We are doing the last 100km in October 2016.

Thank you all in advance.

Buen camino!

We led a pilgrimage by coach last June with an 86 year old man who had had a stroke. It became obvious that we needed a wheelchair and we asked our guide about getting hold of one, but she couldn't organise anything. I don't think Spain is as clued up as England where wheelchairs are concerned. We wished we had taken one with us.

Thank you all for weighing in on this. It is probably best that they bring their wheelchair from the US. This may be checked in for their flights and from a quick check of baggage policies of several airlines, is not counted under free checked baggage allowance.
