Have you ever been in this dilemma when you come to Paris from overseas: You arrive early or late morning, exhausted and jet lagged and you can’t check into your hotel yet. You may not trust them to hold your luggage or feel comfortable asking them or your hotel is nowhere near where you want to go that day and you don’t want to waste time going all the way there.
Now there’s a new smart solution: City Lockers. City Lockers is a service that lets you store your luggage in secure lockers with three convenient locations in the center of the city. The cost is only 10 euros a day. You can only reserve it through their website and the process is super simple:
1. You select the date, the location you want and how many lockers you want
2. You pay for your locker with Paypal or by credit card.
3. A secret code is sent your email and texted to your phone
4. You use the code on the locker assigned to you to store and pickup your luggage
5. City locker will automatically text you two hours before they close to remind you to pickup your luggage
Each facility is safe and secure with 24-hour camera surveillance and is open 8AM to 10PM.
It’s also a great service if you are traveling by train to and from Gare St. Lazare as they do not have luggage storage.
