My friends and I are studying abroad next spring and are hoping to travel around Europe before we settle in to our respective countries. We’ll fly over to Europe with all of our luggage for the whole semester. But we obviously don’t want to be carrying our stuff around for the whole trip. Do you know of any places where we could rent some cheap, safe storage space or lockers for a week or so? Does this thing even exist?

Almost all major train stations have luggage lockers or “left luggage” storage rooms. It’s generally 3 to 5 euros per bag per day. There are also lockers at many airports.

Where do you arrive?

Thanks! I’m assuming you don’t have to reserve a locker in advance? That sounds like a good deal.

We haven’t decided where to start our trip yet. We’re deciding between Paris and Amsterdam. We’re working on crunching our itinerary together since we have much less time than originally planned. We’ll most likely end up scheduling each city based on where and when the cheapest flights go.

No problem finding luggage storage at train stations or airport in either Amsterdam or Paris.

Great! Any idea if Brussels would be as easy?
