Paris restrictions

Paris, like all the other tourist destinations in the world, had to adapt to the new rules. Shops, restaurants, and hotels now follow strict restrictions to avert the danger of new “pandemic waves.” This has made life very difficult for tourists, especially when checking out of the hotel or before check-in.

Nowadays, hotels and b&bs can’t store tourists’ luggage after check-out due to safety and hygienic reasons. That’s why it’s important to rely on external luggage storage services that can take care of your belongings when you don’t know where to leave them.

In Paris, you’ll find several companies that provide services like this, but not all of them are as convenient and secure as Radical Storage.
