What to keep in mind when picking a luggage storage solution
Sometimes it’s not so easy to figure out which luggage storage solution to pick. Here are a few things to keep in mind before making a decision:
- Location: the first criteria is also the most obvious one. Pick a service which is close to the place you want to visit, but also take into consideration how many other people might think the same way as you. In some cases, such as when visiting a very famous museum, leaving your belongings at their cloakroom might mean a lot of extra waiting time spent queuing or going through security. So it’s good to check a few options in the area where you’re in
- Price : a small price can seem like the perfect deciding factor. After all, you’re on holiday, there are better ways to spend your money. But before you get too excited, check if there are any extra fees, or if they charge you for being a bit late picking up your bags. This way you save yourself from any unexpected surprises.
- Opening hours : some places might be ideally located and charge a reasonable price, but might close quite early in the evening or take a two-hour lunch break, messing with your plans. A good storage solution means not stressing about pick-up and drop-off times
- Safety/ insurance : you don’t just want to leave your trolley behind, but also your worries. Check where they deposit your bags and if they offer insurance (if so, how much?) Other customers’ reviews always come in handy.
