Often times when we travel we always want to squeeze every available moment exploring new places before making our next connection. Sometimes it’s a challenge because we have luggage in tow. Some places such as museums and events won’t even admit you with luggage or even worse they’ll send you to the Coat Check area where you’ll be charged a hefty storage fee for an unsecured closet.
Your choices are to either sit at a terminal with your luggage and wait for your connection or you can store your luggage and then venture out. A fantastic idea is there are storage places that will take your luggage and store it for you while you enjoy the last few hours of your trip. There are many places that are convenient to your terminal or airport location. And the great thing is it totally affordable. You can’t beat that can you? Take a look.
