What do you do with your baggage when your hotel wants you out of your room by 11:00 a.m. but your plane doesn’t leave until 11:00 p.m.? CityStasher, a new London outfit, has one answer: If you face that problem in the U.K., head for one of the company’s 90 “stashpoints” and check it for up to 24 hours for about $7.75. (Longer stashes are also available.)
Another (free) option is, of course, to leave your bags at your hotel’s front desk. But with dozens of locations around London, CityStasher offers a useful alternative if your hotel isn’t convenient to the area you want to explore. It’s also a nice option for those who have an all-day layover in a city but aren’t staying long enough to book a hotel.
The few outfits I know that provide a similar service in the U.S. charge a lot more. Here’s hoping CityStasher eventually makes its way to these shores.
