User terms and conditions
Thank you for using Luggagehero!
These Terms of Service for European Users (“Terms”) are a binding legal agreement between you and LuggageHero that govern your right to use the websites, applications, and other offerings from LuggageHero (collectively, the “LuggageHero Platform” or “Platform”). When used in these Terms, “LuggageHero,” “we,” “us,” or “our” refers to the LuggageHero entity.
The LuggageHero Platform offers an online venue that enables users (“Members”) to publish, offer, search for, and book services. Members who publish and offer services are “Providers,” and Members who search for, book, or use services are “Clients.” Storage Service Providers offer temporary luggage storage (“storage”) and other services (collectively, “Provider Services,” and each Provider Service offering, a “Listing”).
As the provider of the LuggageHero Platform, LuggageHero does not own, control, offer or manage any Listings or Provider Services. LuggageHero is not a party to the agreements or contracts entered into directly between Provider and Client.
As a provider, you are responsible for understanding and complying with all laws, rules, regulations, and contracts with third parties that apply to your Provider Services.
LuggageHero A/S (“LuggageHero,” “we,” or “us”) is a storage concept, revolutionizing the way we travel, meet, and interact, available at www.LuggageHero.com (hereinafter, the “Platform”). LuggageHero offers an online community for Storage Service Providers and Travelers to facilitate the storage of luggage around the world.
LuggageHero’s Platform is designed to enable users to offer storage services (“Storage Service Provider(s)”) and allow other users (“Traveler(s)”) to have their luggage stored with such Storage Service Providers. Whether you are a Storage Service Provider or a Traveler (“User” or “you”), these user terms and conditions apply to all Users of the Platform.
1. Acceptance of the user terms and conditions
By logging on to, connecting to, accessing or using the Platform, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the following user terms and conditions. When you create your own User on the Platform, you agree to be bound by the user terms and conditions and to comply with all applicable laws and regulations regarding your use of the Platform. In order to create a User on the Platform, you must possess the legal authority to enter into these user terms and conditions and to form a binding agreement under any applicable law and own a valid credit card and a valid e-mail address. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE AND ACCEPT THESE USER TERMS AND CONDITIONS, PLEASE DO NOT LOG ON TO, CONNECT TO, ACCESS, OR USE THE PLATFORM AS A USER IN ANY MANNER.
2. What is LuggageHero?
LuggageHero is the new luggage storing concept, revolutionizing the way we travel, meet and interact. Through the Platform LuggageHero makes it possible for Users to offer their storage services as Storage Service Providers to other Users.
LuggageHero wishes to give you the best travel experience while using LuggageHero’s Platform; However, LuggageHero has no control over the conduct of any Storage Service Providers, Travelers or any other Users and disclaims all liability in this regard, cf. sec. 17 and 18. We recommend all Users to carefully and thoroughly examine and check with their respective Storage Service Providers and other Users all necessary details related to their storage services prior to any booking. Your use of any storage services (“Storage Services”), directly or indirectly, from using LuggageHero’s Platform, is entirely at your own risk.
LuggageHero is not a party to any agreement entered into between Storage Service Providers and Travelers in any circumstances. LuggageHero is only the provider of the online platform, which enables Users to interact. The User has the sole and ultimate responsibility regarding compliance with all laws, regulation (including without limitation the applicable tax regulations and luggage storage regulations) or any other duties relating to the Storage Services. LuggageHero does not accept any liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense that you may suffer or incur as a result of or in connection with your participation in any Storage Services conducted by a User or a third party. Nor will LuggageHero accept any liability as a result of direct or indirect damage to the luggage or its content. Similarly does LuggageHero not accept any liability due to the nature or legality of the content of the luggage.
Although LuggageHero provides the digital infrastructure – the Platform – LuggageHero does not vauch, endorse or guarantee the performance to fulfill the contract by the customer or the Storage Service Provider. Any references to a Storage Service Provider being « certified » shall solely mean that LuggageHero has verified the identity and that the Storage Service Provider prima facie, has the storage facility available.
As a service to the Traveler, LuggageHero has ensured that Storage Services booked and paid through the Intermediary Platform are covered by a third party insurance company. See more about this in section 11.
3. Use of the Platform
In order to enter and use the services provided by the Platform, you must register and create a User account (“User Account”). The registration is free of charge.

All Users can book Storage Services, when their User Account has been activated. The registration is in accordance with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation).
When customers search, enter and accept a booking, they are entering into a contract directly with the Storage Service Provider. LuggageHero is not a contractual party to the contractual relationship between the Traveler and the Storage Service Provider.
