Can I have my pack transported?

Viewed 3016 Times

Sure, no problem. Just a few things you have to keep in mind:

  1. you’ll have to plan your trip (your next day’s stop) since you will need to know where to have your pack transported to. Keep in mind that most transport services cover only a maximum distance of 25 km.
  2. you’ll need to stay in accommodations that allow reservations and are open all day (to receive your pack and keep it safe until you arrive). This usually means that municipal albergues are out of scope.

How to use the transport services:

Once you arrive at the albergue you tell the receptionist or owner that you wish to send your pack ahead to a certain location (for which you made reservations).
They will contact the luggage transfer service of your choice (they usually have a list from which you can pick from). Make sure you write down the telephone number of the provider you pick.
The receptionist will give you an enveloped form or a ticket form and you’ll need to fill in your name and your destination of choice. Pay the fee (~5 Euros usually) by putting it in the envelope and attach it to your pack. You can leave the pack in a designated area when you leave in the morning. It will be picked up during the day and dropped off at your destination of choice (probably sooner than your estimated arrival time). Once you arrive, you pick it up and check in at your new accommodation for that night.
