New Rail Plus service delivers a luggage free Paris

Those on a short stopover who wish to maximise time may find this service useful.

Or, you might arrive to Paris airport, but only need one bag for a stay outside and then you can be reacquainted with all your bags at a later date.

Parisian rail services have unveiled an exclusive new luggage storage and transfer service in Paris that gives passengers the freedom to fully embrace the City of Lights. Customers using the service are greeted upon arrival by train or aircraft in Paris by a concierge who collects their bags and delivers the bags 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.

A representative says the new service allows customers to make the most of their time in one of the world’s most exciting cities. “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,” says Kocijan. “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.”

The service – which customers can use on arrival and/or departure – must be booked 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.
