Short Stay Show Podcast - Luggage Storage Network - Catherine & Jack - Stasher

Stasher came about in 2015 as the brain-child of two Oxford Graduates.  Anthony lived near Kings Cross in London and regularly had friends asking if they could leave bags at his place so they could explore the city. They quickly realised hundreds of people must have this problem each day, and with struggling small high street businesses across the city that have extra space, this could be the perfect place to store them. They now have over 1000 storage locations across the world, all over Europe, US, Aus and Asia including hotel brands like Acccor and Premier Inn. 


Join me as Catherine & Jack from Stasher share how this genius luggage storage idea can ease the arrival and departure of guests into your property and give them a better experience, whilst removing an issue for you as Short Stay Providers
