I want to keep my 2 big bags in terminal-8 for 5hrs. where is luggage storage? and how much it will cost?


It will be 2x$18. The storage is located on the first floor by domestic baggage claim area.

I'm traveling from Argentina to New York. I'm planning on staying 6 days in NY and then I have another flight to London. Since I'll be in London for a while I thought on leaving my two heavy bags at the airport for 6 days. How much can that cost me? Is it possible to do that?

Yes, it is possible. Look for Baggage Storage at Terminal 4/located next to Hotel reservation desk on the first /. The price goes by the size of the bags and it is around $16-$18 per big bag per 24hrs.

I`m arriving at JFK in the morning and I have 12 hours times before my next flight departs to Paris, were I will be touring Europe as a Backpacker for a month. I want to use that time to shop in the city and buy my kid lots of toys. But even is I pay as little as $8 per day for a month that`s a lot of money. Are there any special rates for long time storage? So I can pick up the toys on my way back home????

In the city this is as cheap as you can get for baggage storage, regardless of the time period.

I went to the airport too late and I could not check in my luggage. Then I talked to a security guard and leave my luggage next to the gate, and I get on to the plane. I let someone else to pick up my luggage right after I departure. When my aunt was trying to get my luggage, which is the one next to the airport gate, the NYPD talked to her about this luggage and the police called my school to confirm that I am the student. Finally, they let my aunt took my luggage. Will I get any troubles because of this?

I am leaving JFK @11:00pm next Wendsday. I will be traveling by car from Philadelphia. How much time will I need? Thank you in advance.

At that time I will say 2 - 2.5 hours.

It was very naive from your side to leave your belongings to somebody's else attention(even being that security guard). This is NOT advisable to do that nowadays at ANY airport. I do not think you will get in any trouble, since your aunt already has the luggage. But, be more cautious next time.

i arrive at NY-JFK at 7am (AI flight). i have US airways flight from JFK - CLT the next day at around 1pm. i dont want to carry my bag to the city, is there a storage space available at USairways?

Not at US Airway terminal(Terminal 7). The closest storage is at Terminal 4. Use Airtrain to transfer between terminals.

My flight on saturday is only at 10pm, so can i leave my bagage from 10am till 8 pm in terminal 1 (Lufthansa), since i would like to go to the city for a last walk?
thank you in advance

Yes, you can do that.


I have a problem. I´m travelling thru South America right now. After this I will go to Canada. To enter Canada I need my Visa, my Visa is in Germany right now.

I have a Stopover for 8 hours in New York is there a way that somebody could sent the letter with the Visa to the Airport and I pick it up from there.

If anybody has an Idea please let me know.
