Where to Store Your Luggage in The Azores

If you’re visiting the Azores, chances are that you might need to store your luggage at some point. This is often the case if you’re arriving before you can check into your accommodation or checking out from an Airbnb but not travelling until later in the day. Many hotels will allow you to drop off a bag at reception but that isn’t always an option. Don’t worry, though: there are a few backup options. 

It goes without saying that there are very few luggage storage options in the Azores, especially when compared to Lisbon or Porto. For this reason, you may want to consider leaving some luggage in Lisbon, Porto, or even Ponta Delgada to make travelling easier. 

Another way to make things easier would be to rent a car. That way you can keep your bags in the trunk while you explore. 

Finally, another option would be to ask a hotel or business if they’d be willing to store your bags for a few hours if you offer to pay.

So, in short: when visiting the Azores, consider travelling light, staying in hotels that have a reception, or renting a car.
