Luggage Lockers at Amsterdam Central Station
The self serving luggage lockers (Dutch: bagagekluizen) on the Central Station are in the East wing of the station (right side of the building looking from the city centre), in a separate area open daily 5am to 1am. Convenient but not cheap...
If you prefer a cheaper luggage storage option, you can find an independent company 5 minutes from the central station building: Lock luggage storage.
There is also an interesting service that specializes in luggage transport. You leave your bags in the hotel on your last day and they take it to the airport while you are enjoying your plans. You can read more on our hotel to airport luggage delivery webpage.
The self-operated lockers at central station are in two sizes. The bigger is 90x60x40 cm and the smaller is 90x45x40 cm. The rate for a small locker is €7 for the first 24 hours. And there is extra charge for leaving it there for longer. Maximum length of storage is 9 days.
The bigger locker is more expensive, with first 24 hours at €10.
You place your luggage in a selected locker, get a special ticket in a vending machine (accepting major credit cards) and close the locket. Memorize the number of your locket. Do not lose the ticket as it will cost you an extra fee of Euro 10.
The maximum rental period is 9 days. After this period, the luggage is removed and sent to the Central Lost Property Office in Utrecht. To collect it one has to travel there. There is a charge of 70 Euros for collecting the luggage removed from the locker plus the full storage fee for 9 days.
Our advice is to use this storage facility for a day or two. It is convenient because there is always a service person there to help you out in case of ay problem with a locker or paying machine. For a longer period if you decide to travel in the Netherlands we advice you to arrange the storage of your luggage at the hotel you stayed. Most of hotels have a special luggage room for their guests.
