Luggage locker at Cebu airport?


Recommended Posts

I am passing through Cebu airport with lots of luggage and I would rather not have to lug all the luggage to the hotel. Are there luggage lockers or a place where you can leave luggage in Cebu airport? If there is one any idea what the cost would be per day?

You might want to take your extra bags across the street to Waterfront hotel. They will charge you per bag/per day to hold them in secure storage. Just look for their porter in the arrival hall. Tell them you are going to gamble at the Casino and will not be checking in. The only way possible at Mactan airport is to declare that you do not want to import stuff/pay duties and will pick it up on departure. Customs will inventory it, lock it in their cages and if you're lucky the customs employees won't steal everything. It was a customs agent at Mactan who taught me years ago how to open any suitcase with a pen or pencil, take what you want and re-lock the bag. Pretty cool trick actually. Short of the Customs cage or Waterfront Hotel, you're gonna hoof them bags. But it's no big deal at Mactan, just get a porter who will load everything. Heck, one time I had 3 taxi's take me and my stuff to Cebu Plaza Hotel. If you have lots of bags and are going past Cebu City take a Taxi to the Mactan PUJ terminal and find a Jeepnee, rent the whole damn PUJ for your trip and leave the worrying to the locals. But no matter what you do, negotiate the price before you accept anything and have a good time!

This is not true. They have storage facilities in many world airports (I don't know about US airports). I have peronally used them in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and many others.

as mentioned, not true. They just upgraded generally upgraded the security at the airport left-luggages, but I don't know any airport where they used to have left luggage but have no abandoned it. NAIA has NEVER had any left-luggage facility as far as I know, either before or after 9/11. This makes it one of the very few capital city airports in the world without one.

 

that's NAIA, but also these replies are similarly just plain wrong because THERE IS A LEFT-LUGGAGE FACILITY AT CEBU AIRPORT. It's to the left from the baggage carousel and i'm amazed that nobody here has ever spotted it, it's not as if it's in some obscure corner, but in full plain view.

 

but it is expensive at 250 pesos per piece per day, your best bet is to get Paul Whiteway to store your bags for you.

Want to echo Udonthani in case there is any doubt. YES THERE IS left luggage at Mactan, just to the left as you turn away from the carrousel. My best man checked a bunch of large bags after our wedding last year... and yeah it's kinda pricey but sure beats lugging it around all day.

 

NAIA ALSO has left luggage now, at least in Terminal 3... when entering the terminal hang a left on the ground floor and go almost all the way to the end of the building then turn right (toward the gates) and you should see the signs. I've used them several times and they're fine.

Terminal 3 has one, yes but the main NAIA stands out as being one of the very few airports in the world without left-luggage.

 

after the western countries started taking terrorism more seriously following 9/11 what happened was that luggage lockers, where travellers could put coins in at train and bus stations and store bags, started to shut down suddenly. They were deemed too risky and easy for terrorists to use. But these are different to left-luggage facilities at airports, which supposedly have a much higher level of security.

Thanks for confirming that there is a left luggage facility at Cebu airport. But at 250 pesos per day per piece, it is going to cost me 1,500 pesos (3 pieces for 2 days). At that price I think I will just haul them over to the hotel and bring them back.

surely you did not think for one second anything in life was free just make sure when you get out of the cab the dude does not drive off with your luggage... better to write the cab number on your hand while sitting in the back seat...

the price at Mactan left-luggage is not cheap. I noticed it's more expensive than the price at Suvarnbhumi, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur, both of which are major airports serving big capital cities, rather than a pissy little airport serving the provincial backwater of Cebu city.

Kuala Lumpur is 35 RM per piece (at least at the main terminal it was like that 2 years ago or so), u pay one full day, even u only want to leave a small bag for one hour. much more expensive than in, let's say, Frankfurt, where you pay siginificantly less if you only use the service for 3 hrs or 6 hrs....

KLCCT isn't anywhere near as pricey as KLIA then, if that's what they're charging, but still worth thinking twice about using it. Left luggage isn't especially cheap anywhere.

I just got back from Kuala Lumpur yesterday and while I didn't see (didn't need) anything at KLCCT I did see both large and supersize LOCKERS for 5 and 8 Ringitt respectively at the far end of the LRT's Central Station (next to the Hilton) where the Aerobus from the airport drops you off. Hong Kong has them too, on the domestic side (can't remember if that's Terminal 1 or 2, just next to the bus area) but they cost a bit more than that. Lockers are always a better option if you can find them.
