Thames Path Baggage Service
Move My Bags along the Thames Path
Thames Path Baggage Service
There’s no need to carry a heavy pack during the day. Our Thames Path baggage service takes the weight off your shoulders so that you can enjoy the walk so much more and still look fabulous in the evenings. We can move your bags each day as you walk the Thames Path.
We can move your luggage even if you are not booking accommodation through us. Just email us your itinerary and we will do the rest. Bags can be picked up and dropped off from anywhere close to the Thames. Note that our season runs from Easter Monday to the end of October.
What you should know
Bags are picked up from 9am and are dropped off before 4pm
We send you text messages once the bags are picked up and again when dropped off. That gives you peace of mind whilst walking.
We charge £25 for one bag and £30 for two bags. This is per move. Bags should be no more than 20kg. For larger groups, additional bags are charged vat £5 per bag.
We can also pick up and drop off on travel days. For instance, if you were to arrive in Oxford and plan to walk that day, we will meet you to collect your bags and then deliver it to your hotel later that day. Likewise we can deliver your bags to you in person at a station. There is an additional charge equivalent to one transfer for this “meet and greet” service. So, for instance, if you are party of 2, the charge will be £30 plus an additional £30 for the “meet and greet” service. A party of 3 will be charged £35 plus an additional £35 for the “meet and greet” service.
If you need anything extra dropping off with your bags (batteries, phone charger, spare socks, blister pack), just let us know. We are here to help!
London: We do pick up and drop off in London. However, traffic moves so slowly here that we have to charge more to cover our time and fuel. Additionally, we incur local government fees for driving in London. We therefore charge an additional £15 for the first bag and a further £5 for each additional bag. For tariff purposes, London starts immediately downstream of Kew and extends all the way to the Thames Barrier.
We no longer take deposits. But we ask for payment in full one month before the start of your walk. Note that, although we are members of ABTOT, there is no financial protection for this service.
We offer a laundry facility to those using our baggage transfer service. Just let us know a day in advance and we will drop off laundry bags for you with your luggage. You need a separate bag for whites and coloureds. Bags cost £20 and should weigh no more than 5kgs. There is a two-day working week turnaround.
