If you wish the luggage to be dropped at the end of your hike, or need longer luggage transfers covering more than 1 route section, bookings must be made by e-mailinfo@vicentinatransfers.pt and the following rules apply:

  • Luggage transfers covering 2 route sections, cost is double

  • For direct transfers (including 3 or more route sections) there is a special rate of 10€ per route section, including up to 2 luggage pieces. Each additional luggage piece is 5€ per route section.

WEIGHT LIMITS

Each Luggage item must not exceed 20 kg. Overweight luggage will be accompanied by a request to reduce the weight in the following transfers. If an extra bag is needed, there will be an extra charge of 5€ per day for the extra bag.

LUGGAGE RULES

  • Food items are not permitted (water bottles, beverages, fruits, any kind of food, dry or fresh).

  • Backpacks must have their straps loose and cannot be packed on protective covers or carry on bags. Please remember that we have to carry your luggage up and down the car, up and down stairs and along pedestrian only streets

  • Luggage items must be standalone items and cannot be stuffed together on huge carry bags

EXTRA ITEMS

Strapped items to your main luggage will save weight and space to your trekking daypack. Items must be firmly secure to the main luggage (e.g. hiking equipment, hand bags, boot bags, souvenirs, etc…). For the safety of strapped items is crucial to mention their number and content on the Online Booking Form.

This does not include extra weight of your luggage on an extra bag and is meant to give you the comfort of carrying these items without the need of crushing them on you backpack.

COLLECTION AND DELIVERY

  • Luggage must be ready from 9:00 am and will be delivered till 4:30 pm

  • Always leave your luggage in a central location on your accommodation, like the lobby, reception or luggage room. 

  • You don’t need to be present for the pick-up and delivery and can start the hike before we arrive!

  •  We’ll label your luggage on the first transfer. DO NOT remove the label until the end of the hike. We need it to make sure your luggage is delivered on the right place.

 

If the luggage is not ready for collection on the requested time and another service provider must be hired, the resulting cost is entirely supported by the customer.

In the event of unforeseen circumstances (e.g. road block, vehicle break down, accident) preventing the delivery of your luggage before 4:30 pm, you will be informed immediately and an alternative solution will be arranged to suit your comfort. However we will not accept any liability resulting from such events.

If we are unable to deliver you luggage due to closed premises, we’ll attempt to deliver it to a nearby safe location and inform you and your accommodation.
