     Sending suitcases, rucksacks and luggage along the Camino de Santiago

 

CORREOS transfers your rucksack, suitcase and luggage along the Way, to your starting point, back home or to the place you tell us. That is why we have our PAQ PEREGRINO. If you need to transfer your luggage from accommodation to accommodation, section to section, we also offer that service with our Paq Mochila. 

The PAQ PEREGRINO can be of help before, during and after the Camino. The difference with other packs is that the Paq Peregrino is not returned to sender after 15 days, it will be therefore waiting for you as long as you need it (the first 15 days we will keep it for free and after day 16 we will charge 1 Euro/day towards storage costs).

BEFORE STARTING THE CAMINO: 

  1. You can send your rucksack or suitcase to your starting point, so that you do not have to take it there yourself. You can send it from any Correos post office to the post office of the place where you will be starting, we will keep it there for you until you arrive. 
  2. You can send a suitcase to Santiago or any other town or city in the Camino, so that you can collect it when you arrive. In this way, you can have extra clothes and other items if you want to spend a few days of holidays in the area after the Camino. 

If you land in Madrid, you can directly post your suitcase from the Correos post office at Barajas Airport. It is located in Terminal 1, in the Arrivals area. Opening times are Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 14:30 and Saturdays from 09:30 to 13:00. We also have a post office in the railways station of Chamartí, Madrid, with the same opening times. You will also find many offices in other cities that open in the evening, up to 22.00. You can find all opening times and addresses of our over 2,000 offices here.

 

DURING THE CAMINO: 

  1. You can send a Paq Peregrino with extra clothes, things, or shopping. You can send them back to your locality ot to any Correos office along the Camino to collect them when you arrive.

 

WHEN YOU FINISH THE CAMINO:

  1. Once you finish your Camino, you can send your rucksack or suitcase back home with Correos. This will allow you to travel unburdened and you can avoid paying extra charges with some airlines due to overweight luggage.

We transfer your rucksack

So that you can travel light along the Way

 

We transfer your rucksack or suitcase from accommodation to accommodation!! In this way, you can walk more comfortably, unburdened, and enjoying every step of the Way. We will take your luggage every day to your next hostel or hotel.

 

Bicycle transportation services 

We send your bicycle to your starting or finishing point

 

Decide where you want to start the Camino and we will send your bicycle there from any of our Correos offices. Once you finish the Way you can again go to the nearest post office and send it back home. We send your bicycle neatly packaged and insured in a way that you need not disassemble it.

 

Luggage transfer

For everything you want in or out of your rucksack 

 

With our Paq Peregrino you can send suitcases or parcels to any point in the Camino -hostel, hotel, Correos office, etc. - so that your stuff is there when you arrive. This way you can have extra clothes or other items and not only the ones you take for your walk. You can also send back whatever you may have in your rucksack for the Camino that you no longer need.

 

Prepaid Card

So that you have nothing to worry about other than just enjoying the Camino 

 

In Correos we have a prepaid card that is not linked to any bank account. In this way, you can do the Camino without taking your credit or debit cards with you. You will only have to top it up with the money you need and then top up again if you run out of balance. This is a simple, safe and comfortable way of taking your money along the Camino.

 

 

Stamping Your Credencial

So that you have the best stamps on your Pilgrim's Passport 

Correos offices along the Way stamp your Credencial or Pilgrim's Passport with our special stamps. Many of them display a significant tourist attraction of that particular place for you to keep as a souvenir.

 

 

Sending parcels on the Camino de Santiago

This service will help you get rid of the content of your luggage that you no longer need, buy some souvenirs, typical products... without having to worry about carrying them with you.
