Barcelona welcomes millions of visitors during the summer, and they come to enjoy the city’s varied gastronomic, leisure and cultural offer. In order to get to know the city better, many people stay in Barcelona for at least a week, but visitors coming from nearby coastal towns for example, only pay the city a short visit. Sometimes they are only passing through Barcelona, when they decide to combine their travels with a swift visit to the city. And other times visitors arrive hours before they have access to the apartment or hotel they had booked. These situations lead to an important question: Where can I keep my suitcases for a couple of hours or a few days? Today, this article by ShBarcelona will tell you more about where you can store your luggage in the Catalan capital.

Safe & secure storage for your luggage in Barcelona
Barcelona is a city with many ways to spend your leisure time, and once you are in the city, you absolutely want to make the most of your time. But sometimes you happen to arrive before you can check into your hotel room or pick up the keys to your apartment. Maybe you are even visiting the city only for a few hours, and not staying for one or more nights. So where would you leave your luggage in any of the situations above? Especially in these occasions, you can opt for a service such as LuggageHero. The storage service only recently started operating in Barcelona and it works perfectly in every situation. LuggageHero has more than 80 storage locations throughout the city, including at retail outlets, hotels, cafes, and more. So storing your luggage in Barcelona is no longer mission impossible, but knowing which companies offer possibilities of storing your suitcases fully insured, as is the case with LuggageHero, is important.

LuggageHero’s storage sites are located near many major public transport centres, such as Barcelona Sants Station, España Station, Cataluña Station, França Station and Passeig de Gracia Station. You can also find them at bigger tourist locations, like the neighbourhood of Eixample, the neighbourhood of El Raval and the city centre. You can visit the Sagrada Familia and the Picasso Museum, walk along Las Ramblas or watch a football match live at Camp Nou stadium, without having the burden of carrying your luggage around with you. The service works very effectively, by simply searching for your nearest storage centre via an online map on the official LuggageHero website. Every luggage item gets a security seal, and both your suitcase and its contents are insured for €2,500. No fees are charged until you pick up your luggage again. And also important: if you change plans and don’t need storage after all, there’s no cancellation fee. If any problems occur, you can chat online with customer service 24/7. Rates start at €1 per hour, with a maximum of €10 per day per suitcase on the first day of storage, plus a one-time handling fee of €2 per suitcase. This includes security and insurance seals. If you will be travelling to other major European cities, it is good to know that you can also find LuggageHero in over 20 cities in Europe and North America.
