Can I leave my luggage at the Paris airport?

When you do not want to lug heavy baggage all the way to Paris when France is just a one- or two-day stop in your European trip, there is a solution to leave your luggage at Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG).

The “Bagages du Monde” counters offer just this convenience. They are situated in Terminals 1, 2A and 2F.

They will ask the day and time on which you intend to retrieve your goods, your passport and your flight ticket. Keep your e-ticket with you or a printout of your ticket confirmation if you bought your ticket online.
