Before you go – packing considerations
Weather: Expect rain all year, especially in the winter and spring. Summers are dry, hot and humid with storms frequent in the evenings. Snow falls from September until well into May. Research weather prior to your holiday to inform your packing list. See our Spain page for more information.
Technology: With Luggage Mule’s generous 30kg allowance, you can ship all your technological appliances with you. Whether you take laptops, cameras or GPS equipment be sure to pack them suitably to avoid damage in transit. Make sure you buy a travel adapter as well.
Shopping: Those in pursuit of gifts will want to make sure they don’t exceed their airline shipping allowance. Some airlines charge up to £10 per kilo of extra luggage. Avoid the cost and the worry and let Luggage Mule deliver all your holiday purchases to your doorstep.
Customs: We all appreciate the need for customs and although the Picos de Europa are placed within the EU travellers should expect rules and regulations. Make sure you don’t get caught out. See our Spain and Luggage Mule prohibited list pages for information on what you can ship.
