SENDING LUGGAGE FROM THE SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA AIRPORT

You can make different shipments of suitcases and packages from both of these offices:

  • Suitcase transport to Santiago. From the Santiago de Compostela airport, Correos also transfers the pilgrim's luggage to the different accommodations in the city. The transport of backpacks and suitcases from Lavacolla facilitates the movement of travelers to the city weight free. It also allows them to more comfortably make a symbolic stage of the Camino de Santiago from the airport to the Plaza del Obradoiro. After leaving their suitcases at the post office, travelers arriving in Santiago that want to experience the Camino de Santiago can access a marked path directly from the terminal that connects the airport with the last 10 kilometers of the French Way. The luggage transport service from the Santiago airport is simple: pilgrims can leave their suitcase at any of the 2 Correos Pilgrim shops in the terminal (one located in the Arrivals area and another one in the Departures area). In a period of 3 and a half hours, the suitcases and backpacks will be available at their accommodation in Santiago de Compostela. The price is 6 euros per suitcase, with discounts for groups.

 

  • Shipping suitcases or backpacks to the starting point of the Camino. If you land at the Santiago airport to start your Camino in Sarria, Tui, Ferrol or any other location, you can send your backpack or luggage from the post offices located in the Departures  and Arrivals area. This way you can travel comfortably without having to carry or worry about your luggage.

 

  • Shipping  suitcases or packages when you finish your Camino. From the Lavacolla airport you can also use the Paq Peregrino to send the backpack or suitcase back to avoid costs to check-in addditional bags. You can also buy a souvenir of the Camino or send your packages with what you can’t take with you on the plane.

 

We also SEND TREKKING POLES from Santiago if you don't want to check them in when travelling back home (remember that you can't take them as hand luggage if you are flying). The prices for these services are as follows:
