The demand for travel has been on the rise in a post-Covid-restricted world. People who would normally go on a trip every year had been at home for the last three years or so. Understandably, they wanted to make up for lost time and use that unspent vacation money to go on a big trip. Insurance provider, Allianz, had projected that the number of Americans traveling to Europe in the summer was “expected to soar by 55% over last year’s figures – which were already a staggering 600% higher than in 2021”. For Americans, Europe has been the trendiest vacation spot this summer, with many visiting Italy, France and the UK over the peak travel season between June and August. Europeans were overwhelmed with the influx of tourists this year, and tourists were unaware of just how many people would be traveling to Europe with them. According to the European Travel Commission, “In the first quarter of 2023, Europe has recovered to about 95% of 2019 levels of international tourist arrivals.” With numbers like this, it’s clear to see how much the travel demand has increased. Before the pandemic, you could book a last-minute trip to Europe easily, but with this year’s numbers, planning 6-12 months is recommended.

Most of us have been on a trip where you had to check out of the hotel at 11 am, but your flight doesn’t leave until later that night. Maybe you want to spend your remaining hours exploring the city instead of waiting at the airport all day. The only issue is that you probably have some luggage with you. Instead of dragging your things around all day, you can check out some luggage storage apps that let travelers leave their luggage in a safe space for an hourly or daily rate. Local businesses partner with these luggage services for another stream of income and to promote their business to travelers and tourists. Similar to services like Airbnb, travelers can review each location and give feedback on their overall experience. Luggage storage apps are relatively new, and you want to choose the service that is best for you depending on where you’re traveling in the world. In this blog post, we’ll be going over the best luggage storage services available for your trip!
