How many times have you found yourself dealing with the luggage deposit problem while travelling? Me? A hundred times! Say you stay at an apartment nowhere near the closest luggage storage. The apartment check-out is by 10 am and it does not provide with deposit service. Your train/flight leaves at 10 pm. So you still have the whole day to “patrol” the wonderful city in which you are. But you have two heavy suitcases. What to do? Well, I just found out that there’s a convenient solution, a luggage storage app called BagAPP. Whew!
What is BagAPP?
BagAPP is a new Smartphone free app. Through it you can search, choose and book a luggage storage, right when and where you need it. No queue!
BagAPP has now storages in London, Milan, Rome, Berlin, Prague and now Venice, Florence, Palermo and Spoleto. The deposit can be a hotel, a shop, a restaurant or any safe space for your bags.
How does BagAPP work?
After the download you simply have to activate the GPS signal or manually insert the city (or the full address). Then, select the number of bags and point out if you have “heavy” luggage. Keep in mind that it does not actually refer to the weight of the luggage. There are no weight limits. It’s just a way for the system to understand the type of luggage to store, if it’s a classic suitcase or a bicycle, a bag or a surfboard… 😉 . Fill out date and time slots and search. Select the right storage and book. You will receive a confirmation e-mail with all the data and the info you need. Very conveniently, you must not pay in advance. In fact you will pay directly at the storage. After the confirmation, by clicking Bring me there, you will be shown the way to reach the place.

Luggage storage app Pros

The only con for now is that it has not that many deposits. Just one in Venice, for example. But the service is growing and expanding, not only with regard to the included cities included but only to the number of deposits in each city. It will be my care to inform you of new deposits or cities that will join the network in the future.
In conclusion, BagAPP is an free, easy and convenient app for your luggage storage problems. Besides, it is not only useful for suitcases. But also in case you have done too much shopping already and you need a place where to leave the shoppers and simply… go shopping again! 😉
