I need to drop my check-in baggage (two big bags) for a few hours at Mumbai Airport. How can I safely and securely do this? What options do I have, if any? What costs should I expect? Are there any problems / issues / side-effects, that I have to take into account?
Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport has a Baggage Storage Facility known as the Left luggage, which accepts bags for safe keeping up to 90 days.
Charge: As per the airport website, the minimum charge for safe keeping a standard size bag is 150 INR per bag and it is 180 INR for a larger bag for up to 6 hours. The charge increases with time. A review on sleepinginairports.net website states that there is a hourly price too. However there is no mention of it in the official website.
Location: The storage facility is located at
- Domestic Terminal 1B - Arrival Hall Exit Ramp
- International Terminal - Near Integrated Exit of Terminal 1B & 1C (Domestic Terminal)
The counter can not be reached from inside the International Terminal T2 (at level P10), so take the elevator outside the terminal to level P4. The counter window is not to confused with the Lost & Found window. Left Luggage is better known as "Cloakroom".
Queue: I could not find any info on queue at Left luggage but the Queue timings of Bombay airport are generally high than other airports as you can see in the customer reviews. So expect and be prepared for a long queue.
You can fine more information at the airport website.
