Just pick an empty locker and put your luggage inside. Then close it. The light on the locker will display a red color.

After that use the machine terminal and your bank card (VISA, Maestro, Mastercard) to pay for the first 24 hours of service. No cash.

You pay for first 24 hours in advance and if you leave your luggage in the lockers for longer, you pay for the extra time when you come pick it up.

After payment you receive a ticket that you present when you come back. If you loose the ticket there is a penalty of €10.

BE AWARE: Your rental expires if you open the locker. Make sure you have everything you need because if you open the door you need to pay again.
