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:
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:
WHEN YOU FINISH THE CAMINO:
In Santiago de Compostela we have an office at Rúa do Franco, 4 (2 minutes away from the Cathedral), another one at the Pilgrims Office in rúa Carretas and another one by the bus station, at Rúa Ánxel Casal.
Prices for peninsular Spain:
For international shipments, please check our parcel services
Besides, we also SEND TREKKING POLES from Santiago if you do not want to check them in when going back home (remember that you cannot take them as carry-on baggage if you are going back by plane). The prices for these services are:
If you do not want to carry your rucksack or suitcase while you are on the Way, we can transfer it every day to your chosen accommodation or from section to section with our PAQ MOCHILA, which you can book on-line and walk luggage-free.
This video shows how this and other pilgrim services work on the Camino de Santiago.
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.
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.
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
Send your parcels without having to come to our Correos offices!
You can send a parcel from any of the over one-hundred CORREOS offices located along the Way and from some of our “Tiendas Amigas del Camino”, a network of shops and accommodations from where you can send parcels any time you want. 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.
Lockers in Santiago
So that you can freely visit the Cathedral or enjoy the city
Our Pilgrim's Office at Rúa do Franco, 150 metres from the Plaza del Obradoiro, has lockers. You can leave your rucksack, suitcase, bike, trekking pole... before you go into the Cathedral or to visit Santiago without having to worry about your luggage.
To help you with anything you may need
We have over 150 Correos offices along all the Caminos. We will be delighted to welcome you and help you with anything you need.
