FAQ about lost and found shipping services

Will hotels mail or ship lost items?
Some hotels can offer to ship left luggage from their hotel rooms; however, others may charge you for handling and shipping the package. Book your left luggage delivery from a hotel directly with Eurosender and get the solution with the best price-to-performance ratio.
How long do hotels keep lost and found items?
It depends on the hotel’s policy for lost and found items. Some hotels will contact guests when they have found lost property in their rooms. Generally, hotels and hostels will keep lost objects between 30 days and 6 months, up to 2 years if the owner is never found. We recommend you contact the hotel as soon as possible to ship left luggage from a hotel room.
Will hotels ship bulky lost items, and what is the best way to return them within Europe?
Most hotels can arrange a lost luggage delivery service, but in any case, you should always check with them first. If your lost property is rather bulky and you need it turned to you urgently, we recommend to book it through our van delivery service for direct transport within Europe, with no stop-overs.
You can get an instant price on our booking tool.
What is the best way to prepare a delivery of lost luggage for shipping?
When preparing left luggage to be delivered by courier, it is recommended to pack the suitcase inside a cardboard box, instead of shipping the suitcase alone. While it is still possible to ship a suitcase on its own, some couriers may refuse collection. Furthermore, insurance will not cover any damage to the suitcase itself, only its contents. For detailed packing instructions for lost luggage deliveries and excess baggage shipping, see our dedicated page.
How can I find out when my lost and found shipment has been collected and is on its way?
You can easily track the progress of your lost and found shipment on our tracking tool. Once you book the service, you will receive your tracking number by email, which will be active once your item is collected. If you are unsure about the progress of your shipment, or your tracking has stopped for whatever reason, contact our team directly on our 24/7 chat, who will assist you with your lost luggage delivery.
Can I book a lost and found delivery from a cinema theatre?
Yes, the only thing you need to get your lost and found property sent back to you from a cinema or venue is the lost and found office’s complete address and the name of a contact person. Theatres, cinema theatres, opera halls and concert venues usually keep lost and found items for a limited amount of time, so you have better changes of getting your lost property returned if you contact the venue as soon as possible.
