LUGGAGE STORAGE (THE AIRBNB METHOD)
Stasher and the other companies below employ a system similar to Airbnb.
Search for a location, make a reservation, and leave your bags at a certified location convenient to you!
Insurance is included in the price, though amounts will vary.
When you drop off your bags they will be secured by some method, usually a zip tie with a unique number or a security seal.
Stasher (formerly CityStasher)
Stasher is a very reputable storage service that is easy to use and is priced quite reasonably.
They charge a flat rate of €5 per bag per day. Insurance up to €845 per bag is included in the price.
Simply search their website for a location near you. Your search will show a map of the locations along with their open hours so you can see which Stashpoint is most convenient.
When you drop off your bags, show the host your reservation email and photo ID.
