Pilgrims have historically been protected by the highest powers, both religious and Regal. Safe conduct, letters of recommendation and certificates issued by royal houses and religious orders of various nations have allowed the pilgrims to travel in relative safety on their Jacobean journey, severe punishment is issued to all those who cause discomfort or extortion to pilgrims, this was even the case at a time when wars continued to break out on the European continent. The favours towards the religious penitent went beyond just safety, and pilgrims were exempted from tolls and certain taxes, while being provided shelter and accommodation.
