Stasher, a Travel Tech Startup is Solving the Luggage Storage Problem Through Crowdsourcing

Stasher | July 09, 2021

Traveling is one of the most rewarding but also one of the most difficult activities. One challenge is storing things while traveling, but an English startup called Stasher is attempting to change the way people store their luggage. Stasher links travelers with hotels and shops that can keep luggage secure while users enjoy their time in a city. Wedderburn-Day developed Stasher as a happy accident when one of his pals wanted to store items with another friend. The friend jokingly suggested charging people for this service. An idea was conceived. They created a platform where people could store items in their homes. The model has subsequently developed, but the fundamental concept has not changed. “Storage in cities is a real issue,” Wedderburn-Day said. “If you remember, and this is still the case, Airbnb had gone from an interesting concept to a household brand at the time, and everyone was beginning to do it. It was also generating a larger potential in this space.” What started as a joke is now in over 250 towns worldwide, but they took a hit during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Hotels and businesses advertise their storage space on the site, and tourists can store their things in a safe place. Dandashy, a former concierge, recognized the need for tourists to keep stuff while on the travel. “The idea has a sort of simplicity to it that makes it great,” Wedderburn-Day said. “It is not reinventing anything, and it is using the sharing-economy concept that has proven to be so successful with taxis and rentals. It is simply making use of existing space.”
