I posed this question to @OdeonCinemas, @OdeonHelp and @ApolloVictoria on Twitter and received the following replies from each:
Provided it doesn't create a trip hazard, or get in the way then there shouldn't be a problem.
As long as it doesn't block any aisles you will be fine :)
So small bags in the ...
Your initial problem will not be where to store your bag, but getting access to it in TPE.
By default, your bags will be checked through to your final destination - in your case that's CTS/Chitose Airport. In order to instead have your bags delivered to the baggage carousel in TPE you will need to ask the staff at the check-in counter in SFO to "short-...
When I've needed to do this in the past I've used Victoria Coach Station's left luggage facilities, which are cheaper and more flexible than the rail stations.
The prices went up slightly in 2017 but are still competitive. There are details on TFL:
Deposits up to two hours: £3 per item (no weight consideration)
Deposits 2-24 hours: £5 per item under 20kg
Train Station Facilities
At least three of Brussel’s railway stations offer left-luggage facilities. The busiest of the three stations (Centraal) is about two kilometres from each of the others and about 11 kilometres south west of Brussels airport (itself about 45 kilometres north of Charleroi airport):
Brussels North (Nord / Noord) Luggage Storage
The easy, safe and cheap option is train station lockers, which can be found at all major train stations in Tokyo (and Japan). Japanese lockers are usually narrow but deep, so while hard plastic suitcases will not fit into them, backpacks are generally not a problem. Some larger stations (eg. Tokyo stn) also have manned left luggage counters (手荷物預かり所 ...
For 3 weeks, your best option will probably be a self storage company.
I looked into self storage in London last year, and by far the best option price-wise was Henfield self storage. Their prices were around 30% lower than the competition. Another very big plus is that they're completely up front about prices, you can get instant prices on their website ...
Yes, both automatic lockers and manned storage of left luggage are available as of today.
I just went to check myself. Everything is accessible and there is no sign whatsoever indicating anything particular. At the automatic lockers some were occupied (red light and locked), others were available (green light and I could open them). The manned storage was, ...
You certainly have more than one option, when it comes to leaving your stuff so you can move around freely:
You'd definitely want to ask to the personnel of your accomodation (hotel, hostel, apartment, etc.) if they can store your luggage until you are ready to leave. Most of the accomodations offer this kind of service and usually have a locked room, where ...
You'd ordinarily need to specify the airline and other details (single ticket vs multiple bookings, etc....), but in this case, it's pretty unlikely that any major airline will hold your luggage for you for two weeks in this situation. Airlines are not in the storage business.
Your luggage will be flown to your stopover point, where you'll need to claim it. ...
If you'll be traveling on train from New Delhi, then you can use the cloak rooms and safety lockers available at New Delhi railway station.
Most major stations have cloak rooms and lockers where you can leave
your luggage, on payment of prescribed charges. This passenger amenity
ensures safe custody of your luggage, giving you the freedom to spend
The Pier 39 California Welcome Center (as mentioned in this question) does offer luggage storage. It's $5/bag, 7am-9pm. I've never used the service, but it's run by the state's tourism promotion organization and I would expect it to be reasonably reliable. The catch is the location: it's Pier 39, which is an extremely touristy area, and it's not directly ...
In case your luggage is really really big, and would be considered a trip hazard (in Odeon), then your nearest luggage storage area would be Charing Cross Station, where there is a Left Luggage station. It is open between 7:00 and 23:00, so you won't have access to your luggage between 23 and 7 at night meaning anything you'd need during night you have to ...
Depending on where your hotel is located it may be more pratical to drop off your bags at the airport in the morning than leaving them in hotel. There is a left luggage facility at terminal 3 and it is easy to get to by metro.
I'm not sure there's a good solution here, it'll depend if you want to maximize time or minimize money. Heathrow is off in the wrong direction, leaving the bags there is going to burn between 90 minutes and a few hours collecting them so I doubt it's worth it.
Honestly, I'd consider a cheap hotel/B&B in the Euston or Paddington area. You could even ...
The intercontinental hotel next to Union Station will store luggage for non-guests for $3 per item [ed: $5 as of June 2018, cash only]. I know this won't be much use to the original poster but its hopefully useful to anyone Googles the same question in future.
1- Yes, absolutely. The earliest shinkansen departs at 6:14 from Kyoto and arrives at 9:00 in Tokyo. Add in the ~40 minutes to get to Miraikan and you should be there at around 10:00.
To get to Narita on time (about 2 hours early), you'll have to leave at about 17:30, leaving you with a more than enough 7 hours to visit.
2- This is completely subjective, ...
According to the Deutsche Bahn AG railway information, the railway station is open 00:00–24:00 daily, and the station has Schließfächer, i.e. luggage lockers.
Luggage lockers at München Ostbahnhof (Source: Münchenwiki, GFDL). Lockers at Hauptbahnhof will look similar.
So, with an unmanned luggage locker, you can put away or retrieve your luggage at any ...
It appears that information is in fact not listed in full on public websites.
So I called them and asked about specifics at the Brig train station:
Generally, the maximum storage duration is 24h
However, you can extend the storage duration via supplementary payments before the 24h runs out, up to a maximum of 72h total
If a 24h period ...
I recently stayed at the Tune hotel Haymarket, directly opposite the Haymarket train station. (Also where the Tram-stop to the airport is)
They have a sign at the door, proclaiming that they will store luggage, also for non-guests, for a fee of a few pounds per day. (updated as per froderick's comment: GBP 5,- which I believe was per-item).
This service ...
According to this thread
Bonded luggage will be sent to luggage hold, can't be reclaimed as carry on.
so that's definitely out.
I found two posts (1, 2) both of which says the left luggage service is what you need.
Left Luggage is your traditional luggage storage, but an agent touches it.
I have used the left luggage service at TPE before. ...
As you point out, friends and/or family should be a consideration. If it isn't, you're typically left with self-storage. One example: Shurgard.
Much cheaper than keeping an apartment, but the costs do add up. If you only have a few suitcases that need storing, I'd try to find a friend.
Shurgard isn't the only self storage solution, but it's the only one I ...
Coin lockers are a feature of most stations in Japan. Depending on size and the station, lockers generally run for ¥200-300 JPY per day. Lockers are of a few different sizes, but aside from very major rail stations (e.g. Tokyo), I think most lockers will not be large enough to accommodate a large roller bag like those used for checked luggage on airlines.
I have never used their service, or that of a competitor, but PODS (Portable On-Demand Storage) might do what you want. The big questions will be cost, and timeliness. I also don't know if they have service outside of the U.S., but there may be similar services elsewhere in the world.
The service, as I understand it, essentially delivers a large "pod" (...
Apparently Oxford Backpackers will hold on to them for you, for a fee:
Oxford Backpackers, 9A Hythe Bridge Street, will accept left-luggage
even from non-residents at 2 pounds per person per day - but not
necessarily per item, if two items can be tied together. Remember,
however, that you have to climb a flight of stairs to start with.
This from a ...
A quick search on google revealed many luggage storage facilities in Osaka. IMHO it would make sense to leave the luggage in the station/airport from which you would be departing/returning when heading/coming back from Tokyo.
To this purpose, here is a page detailing how to access the luggage storage facility at Shin-Osaka station, for a ...
Yes, there are facilities there. Core4Bag provides luggage storage services at the airport. Price depends on the size of the bag and how long you're storing it there for.
Here's the link to the airport luggage services page, which lists them, along with their phone number: https://www.aia.gr/traveler/airport-information/baggage-services
And here's the ...
I asked a friend who live in Barcelona to check it.
The place is located in the main hall next to McDonalds (Sants station).
The address is:
Carrer del Rector Triadó, 75.
You can see the place in Google Street view, just click here.
