From today (21 June 2017), Rail Plus is introducing an exclusive new luggage storage and transfer service in Paris that ‘relieves’ travellers of their luggage, on arrival in the city by air or train, so they are free to explore the city and its surrounds immediately without having to lug around suitcases.
The new service entails being met on arrival by a concierge who collects customers’ bags and delivers them to their hotel at a convenient time – which can range from check-in on the same day to one, two or even three days’ later.
At check-out, the concierge collects the bags and then delivers them to the train station or airport in time for departure.
The service can be used on arrival and/or departure and must be booked through Rail Plus seven days prior to luggage pick-up. Prices range from $61 for two pieces of luggage for same day delivery, to $129 for five pieces of luggage stored for three days.
Rail Plus Commercial Director Ingrid Kocijan says the new service allows customers to make the most of their time exploring Paris.
“As soon as the concierge relieves customers of their luggage they can start enjoying Paris, rather than lugging suitcases around for hours while waiting for their hotel check-in.
“And when it’s time to depart, they can hand over the bags and enjoy all the city has to offer – whether its strolling through the Louvre, relaxing in cafes or shopping in the city’s stylish boutiques – until it’s time to board their train or flight.”
