If you’re visiting Albufeira, the last thing you want to do is drag your suitcases and backpacks through the cobbled streets – especially during the height of summer when the streets are busy with families and stag and hen parties. Thankfully, there are one or two places where you can store your suitcases for a few hours, days, or even longer, depending on your needs. 

As always, the easiest option is to see if you can leave your bags at your hotel’s reception. Most hotels are happy to do this for you, regardless of whether you’re checking in or checking out, but Airbnbs aren’t usually able to offer this as a service as they do not have a reception. 

Bounce

Bounce is a luggage storage app that lists cafes, restaurants, hotels, and other businesses that allow you to leave your bags for a fee. Using the app means your bags are insured, which isn’t always the case when you drop them at a normal luggage storage service. Bounce listed a few options in both old and new town Albufeira. 

There are a number of other luggage storage apps like Bounce, Luggage Hero, and Stasher but unfortunately, the only app that really had any listings in Albufeira was Bounce. 

Algarve Luggage Storage

Algarve Luggage Storage is located at Simply Bar on Avenida Sá Carneiro. This is essentially to the north of the strip in Albufeira’s New Town. 

As well as storing your bags, Algarve Luggage Storage can also transport your bags to Faro Airport, if required. 

Scooby’s Pool Bar, Galé

Scooby’s is a popular place to go and spend the day if you have a late flight as they have a luggage storage facility. Other facilities include a swimming pool, sun loungers, mini golf, free wifi, and food & drink, so it’s perfect for spending a few hours before you head over to Faro Airport.
