The difference between left luggage and luggage storage is the geographic location

Left luggage is luggage that people have left in a designated luggage storage facility. The term ‘left luggage’ is mostly used in the UK. And luggage storage is a storage facility where people leave their luggage. Luggage storage is the most common name used internationally when referring to storing luggage.

In other words, there is absolutely no difference between the two concepts. They are both defined by people’s need of storing luggage which can be collected at a later time. So whether you are looking for left luggage or luggage storage, LugaggeHero is here to take care of your belongings
