Welcome to The Walker's Friend, a company specialising in luggage transfer for walkers, ramblers, hikers, cyclists and runners throughout mainland Britain and Jersey.Whether you are meandering along our stunning coastline or strolling our inland walkways, we are there to move your baggage from one accommodation to the next. Whilst you enjoy some of the best scenery this country can offer you, we give you peace of mind knowing your baggage will be waiting for you at your next overnight stop. At Walker's Friend we liaise directly with your accommodation while you clock up the miles. Collection is at an organised time and contact is made with your next port of call to ensure someone will be available to accept your luggage.

Upon delivery we will send you a courtesy text confirming that your bags are ready and waiting. Being the sister company of a courier network, we have many contacts throughout the United Kingdom, enabling us to quote the lowest price available.                                              

If your walking holiday starts from the railway station, we are happy to meet you there and transfer your bags to the first night's accommodation. In fact the more complex your needs, the more we enjoy finding a solution. If you are an individual, couple or group staying for a few nights or a few weeks, we can put together a tailor made package to suit your needs at an affordable price. The most complicated thing you have to do when using The Walkers Friend is attach the baggage tags to your luggage which we send to you through the post before your holiday.
