How many times have you been at the airport with time to spare so you want to check out the shops but you’ve got so many things to lug around? You’ve got your suitcase, carry on, purse, jacket, etc. And if you’re like me, there’s no way you can travel anywhere with just a carry on. It’s a pain to walk around with so many items and don’t even get me started on trying to take all these things in to the bathroom with you and fit in to a stall!
If you’re lucky enough to live in a city or be traveling to a city that offers Left Luggage (www.left-baggage.co.uk) it can make your time at the airport so much easier so you can navigate your way around with ease.
What is Left Luggage? It’s a service that allows you to store your luggage for a few hours, a few days, or a few weeks. It’s a brilliant idea so you can get around easily at the airport, especially if you have a long layover! The facilities are manned, have 24 hour CCTV, and all items are screened for security so you know your items and luggage will be safe while there. You might be wondering who would keep their luggage there for days or weeks at a time. I think this would be a great option for people who are going on multi-country extended trips. Maybe for part of the trip you don’t need all your luggage and you can consolidate your items in to one duffel bag or one suitcase instead of having to carry everything with you.
You can make reservations ahead of time or drop off your luggage the same day. Left Luggage is there for your convenience. With how hectic and chaotic travel already is, I’m sure travelers will take any help they can get to make their airport and train station experience a little smoother. I know lugging around all my stuff and trying to get around the airport can make me flustered or anxious so Left Luggage would be great for me.
Unfortunately, Left Luggage is not yet available in the United States, but it is in Toronto, in airports and train stations across England, Spain, and Ireland. I love the concept though and think it can do well all around the world. But at least I know there are locations around Europe so on my next trip I can try it out myself and make my life easier at the airport!
