Jannik Lawaetz founded LuggageHero in 2016 after dragging around his own luggage too many times. He created a peer-to-peer economy-sharing concept that is easy to use, trustworthy, and where customers pay only for the hours their luggage is stored. He started in his hometown of Copenhagen, and later expanded to London and New York City in 2017. In 2019, LuggageHero expanded to more than 35 major cities in Europe and North America.

We look forward to lightening your load.
