Depositing your luggage

1. Before using the luggage lockers of B-Locker, a staff person will scan your luggage for security reasons.

2. Walk to the computer screen and choose “Deposit”. While you’re using the screen, your face will be recorded. In that area, there are CCTV cameras. This is also for security reasons.

4. After choosing the space you want, set your password. It must be easy for you to remember and must not be easy to guess.

5. The computer will let you fill in your citizen ID number if you’re a Thai or the phone number you use as you stay in Thailand if you’re a foreigner.

6. Then, pay the service fee. You can choose to deposit your luggage on an hourly or a daily basis. The fee starts from 50 baht which is the rate for 3 hours. That is, if you want to deposit your luggage for only 2 hours, you still have to pay the fee for 3 hours.

After 3 hours, you’ll be charged 20 baht per hours. If you want to deposit your luggage on a daily basis, the fee is 400 baht per day. Then, insert your money. The machine accepts both coins and notes.

7. Once the entire amount has been paid, the lid of your chosen space will be unlocked automatically.

8. Keep your luggage in that space. Make sure you take all your necessary stuff out and take it with you.

9. Close the lid.

Retrieving your luggage

1. On the computer screen, choose “Retrieve”.

2. Then, fill in the number of your space.

3. Fill in the password you set earlier. If you come after 2 hours, you have to pay an extra fee. After that, the lid of your space will be unlocked automatically.

4. Take out all your luggage and close the lid.

Note:

– The luggage lockers of B-Locker operate between 8am and 10pm. After 10pm, you won’t be able to unlock your space.

– Don’t put food with a strong smell in the lockers.
