  • A difficult location to find: for users, these lockers are not usually easy to locate in the station

  • Unguaranteed availability: when demand is high, you have no guarantee of having access to a free compartment
  • No helpline: in the event of a problem on the day of drop-off or collection of your suitcases, you cannot even request help by contacting a hotline
  • A limited-duration rental of storage space: you are required to pay an increase after 3 days (and come and pay it in person) if you need to store your luggage more than 72 consecutive hours
