Nannybag helps you find a “nanny” for your bags, which could be anywhere from cafes and restaurants to shops and hotels.
Depending on the place and its facilities, you could also get access to Wi-Fi, power outlets, or toilets included in your booking as part of the package.
Along with the different perks, you get safety insurance up to $1,000 with every booking to ensure your bags are safe and secured. If anything happens to your luggage during its time with the nanny, you’re entitled to get your insurance money.
Another thing we love about Nannybags is that nannies can accept all types of baggage, from suitcases to backpacks, as long as it’s under 30 kgs (66 pounds) and its dimensions are shorter than 1.5 meters (60 inches).
If you need to store something larger than these specifications, you could divide your bag or package into two smaller ones. That way it’ll fit the nanny’s size and weight specifications.
Last but not least, if your plans change and you need to cancel your booking, you can do so free of charge.
