This April I will need to print my boarding pass for my flight out of A Coruña - anyone know where this would be possible? Is there a pilgrim house, albergue, internet cafe, Good Samaritan, or ??? located there?

In Spain not everybody has a computer or internet at home, so there are still internet café's to be found. In A Coruña there are at least two possibilities:



But on several occasions hospitaleros at albergues were so kind to let me use their computer and printer.

If you have a smartphone it might also be possible to download the boarding pass into your phone or into the app of the airline you're flying with. Then you don't need to print your boarding pass at all.

Like many low-cost airlines, Volotea REQUIRES a paper ticket even though you can check-in online 🤔. They charge 30€ to print it at the airport (my ticket was only 19€ 😂).

Most airports I know are offering terminals to print your boarding pass w/o charging.
You scan you QR that you have on your phone and the terminal will print a stip of thermo-paper with your pass.

Just check the website of the airport for those services.

I got caught with this problem flying from Santiago to Budapest, via Madrid. For the Madrid to Budapest section I was flying on a cheap airline (it was the only one going at the time I wanted). I tried to print out the boarding pass from my hotel in Santiago, but the airline website would not let me. Several staff members at the hotel tried, but the screen would not link through to my pass. Deliberate? When I got to Madrid I was shafted with a 70 euro fee. I should have lodged an official complaint but could not be bothered.

Rick is correct about Pilgrim House as well as a place I keep saying I want to go visit and still haven't! You can also print your boarding pass at Hospederia San Marin Pinario. It is very very close to the Cathedral. Just before you walk through the bagpipe playing tunnel it is the beautiful big building on your right. Just past the front desk you will see computer terminals, Anyone can use them. You do not need to be staying at the hotel.

It, plus the £19 I’d paid for the ticket, still came to less than the amount being asked by the major airlines. It happened to be the only flight that day.

There is a small charge to print from those computers

I appreciate the suggestions, but the topic has creeped away from my original question: “Where in A CORUÑA can I print my boarding pass?”

I ask that specifically because I cannot print my pass while in SdC because I won’t be there when the check-in window opens, the airline charges 30€ to print at the airport, and they require a paper ticket even though you can download an electronic one to a phone! Yes, it IS as crazy as it sounds!

So again: “Where in A CORUÑA can I print my boarding pass?”

Didn’t post #2 and #4 give some answers to your question?

Perhaps an option could be one of the ‘Officinas de Turismo’ – it appears there are two in A Coruña. If they cannot help you to print then maybe they can advise where it can be done.

What's the charge to reserve seats on Volotea?
According to their site if you have paid to reserve seats you can print your boarding pass anytime after purchasing your ticket.
Also, if you pay for airport check in online in advance the cost is 10€ instead of 30€.

Looking at their fee chart, it looks like the cheapest option would be to pay to reserve one of the least expensive seats.

Trevile: great catch on the seat reservation loophole! I missed that one!!!!!!! I think that is low as 7.5€; still a high percentage of the original ticket but cheaper than the airport price.

Andre Walker: contacted one of the locations you posted and they have internet access with printers. 👍

Thanks folks - Buen Camino.
