We were recently on a short layover in NYC having spent a week in Los Angeles. We didn’t want to take our three suitcases into the city for just 48 hours.
Instead decided to take just a holdall and store our suitcases with a specialist company near Newark Airport (in which we’d flown into and would be flying back out of just 48 hours later).
It was super convenient and ideal for those who are only spending a short amount of time in New York. However, there’s a couple of things you should note in advance.
There are no luggage storage facilities inside of Newark Airport. However, there are a number of companies including; Vertoe, Luggage Hero and OEG Luggage Storage who operate within 10 miles and will store your luggage for a couple of hours or a couple of weeks.
The cheapest luggage storage company near Newark Airport is Luggage Hero who charges just $1.00 per hour with an additional $2.00 handling fee.
However, if you’re looking to store your luggage for more than 3 hours then Vertoe is the best company as they charge just $5.95 per day.
