asked questions

    We charge from €4.30 per day (24 hours) for luggage storage in Albufeira.

  • Does Albufeira have luggage lockers?

    Yes, but they're not always the best option. Luggage lockers can fill up quickly and may be unavailable when you need them. Some luggage lockers may be too small to fit large or bulky items. Unlike luggage lockers, we don't charge per hour and instead charge a flat rate for 24 hours of storage. We also have partners who watch over your stuff to make sure it's safe, and can answer any questions you may have or give you advice on what to do in Albufeira.

  • How does Bounce luggage storage work?

    Booking online is super easy and only takes a couple of minutes. To keep our partners and your stuff safe, we'll show you the address of the store once you book online. When you're ready, head to the store and show the Bounce Partner your booking confirmation so they can take your bags and securely store them right away. Then you can enjoy your day without having to worry about your bags!

    To pick up your bags, show the Bounce Partner your booking confirmation and they'll hand over your stuff. That's it!
  • Where is my luggage stored?

    We only partner with trusted businesses who have a dedicated, secure place to keep your luggage safe. Some businesses may store luggage behind a counter that's off-limits to customers, while others may have storage rooms or closets for your luggage. But no matter where you choose to leave your luggage, our partners will keep it safe.

  • What can I store with Bounce?

    Luggage, backpacks, gym bags, and more! Bounce is like having a personal storage facility for your stuff anywhere you go, so you can leave much more than just luggage with us. Whether you want to store your luggage after checking out of your Airbnb or want to drop off your work bag before hitting happy hour, we've got you covered.

    We don't charge extra for oversized items, but some special items might need to be approved before you can store them. For example, surfboards, guitars, car seats, bicycles, or skis take up a lot of space, so let us know if you have them. We can check with the Bounce Partner for you to make sure they have room for your stuff.
  • Is there hourly luggage storage in Albufeira?

    Yes, but many companies charge per hour and costs can add up fast. We charge one price for 24 hours of storage, so storing your stuff is more affordable in Albufeira.

  • How long can I leave my luggage with Bounce?

    Whether you need storage for a couple of hours or a couple of days, we've got you covered! Just put in the dates and times you need luggage storage and we'll show you all of the available locations on our map. For long-term storage lasting more than a week, reach out to us and we'll help you find a convenient location.

    If you're already storing your stuff but you need more time, you can add more time from your booking details page. Just make sure the store will be open and you can get your bags before your new pickup time.
  • How do I change or cancel my booking?

    Plans change, we get it! If you need to change or cancel your booking for any reason, the best way to do it is from your booking details page in the Bounce app. You can edit the dates, drop-off and pick-up times, and number of bags. You can also cancel your booking or rebook at a nearby store. If you can't find your booking details, check the email address you used to make your booking. You can change your booking by following the link there, or reach out to us if you need support.

About Albufeira

Located 160 miles from the Portuguese capital of Lisbon and 28 miles from the larger town of Faro, Albufeira isn’t a big place. That being said, the city is always full of life and energy. Tourism is by far the main industry in Albufeira, and it’s no mystery as to why. Blessed with sunny weather, sandy beaches, and a dramatic rugged coastline, Albufeira draws visitors from all over Europe and around the world to enjoy a beach vacation.

The name Albufeira comes from the Arabic Al-buhera, meaning Castle of the Sea. This place was indeed a Moorish settlement, like many of the towns along the Portuguese coast. Beginning in the 12th century, Christian forces began to retake the Iberian Peninsula, and Albufeira was eventually conquered in 1249.

For most of its history, Albufeira relied on fishing and agriculture to support itself. However, in the mid-20th century, the fishing industry began to decline. As fisheries closed, the population of the town halved. Beginning in the 1960s, however, the fortunes of Albufeira began to change thanks to an influx of tourists. Today, it’s still a great vacation destination with many attractions to please its visitors.

No matter the reason you’ve arrived in beautiful Albufeira, you’ll enjoy the city much more if you’re traveling light. Strolling the cobbled streets is easier without heavy bags and backpacks in tow. Store your luggage and non-essentials with one of our convenient luggage storage facilities. Found near all the top spots to see in Albufeira, we’ll store your stuff so you can see and do more.

Luggage storage in Albufeira

As a small town built around tourism, Albufeira is highly walkable. Thanks to the warm weather and gorgeous scenery of this part of Portugal, walking is really the best way to get around. But heavy bags can quickly turn a pleasant stroll into an arduous struggle. That's why we offer luggage storage in Albufeira. Drop off any unneeded bags before you hit the beach, the Old Town, or other local attractions. You'll be glad you did.

Using our luggage storage service is easy and super convenient for busy travelers. You can complete a booking registration from anywhere using the Bounce luggage storage app, allowing you to skip the lines at storage lockers and ditch your heavy luggage in no time. The hotels, local shops and other businesses we work with are convenient locations close to Albufeira’s most popular attractions, so there’ll always be left luggage facilities where you need them. Contact our customer support team with any questions or concerns that you may have.

Top things to do in Albufeira

What makes the region so special is its natural beauty. This is an unapologetic resort town, and it makes the most of its fortunate location on a stunning coast to keep visitors occupied. There’s still lots to see and do throughout the city; look at the attractions we’ve listed below and start planning your itinerary.

Activities and attractions near Albufeira

Silves

Only half an hour's drive from Albufeira, Silves provides a welcome break from the beach for those looking for more culture. Silves was once the capital of the Kingdom of the Algarve and is best known for its hilltop Moorish castle. Explore the history of the region and take in stunning views from this ancient fortification. Take the time to check out the town while you’re here.

Lagos

Westward along the coast from Albufeira, the coastal town of Lagos is well worth the 45-minute journey. The old walled city and the famous lighthouse make it an atmospheric place to visit, and the views over the Atlantic Ocean are stunning. Don't miss the castle that bears witness to the historic importance of Lagos, too.

Faro

Chances are, you'll pass through Faro on your way to or from Albufeira. But the Algarve's capital is more than just a stop along your way. The ancient cathedral, municipal museum, and charming cobblestone streets of the old town are all worth at least a day of exploration if not more.

Praia de Marinha

Get your beach time at the Praia de Marinha. Often ranked as one of the most beautiful beaches in Europe—and the world—this stretch of golden sand is surrounded by rugged cliffs. As well as stunning rock formations, the beach has been recognized for the outstanding quality and clarity of its water. All in all, it's an absolutely beautiful place to spend some time.

Zoomarine Algarve

Have a blast with the family at Zoomarine Algarve. This amusement park combines water slides and a wave pool with dolphin shows, an aquarium, and its own sandy beach. Let the kids blow off some steam while you relax with a cool drink at this exciting attraction.

Zoomarine Algarve bag policy

Suitcases and backpacks in Zoomarine Algarve will only get in the way of your fun, so you’ll have to find somewhere to store your luggage for a few hours. Use the Bounce app to see our partner locations. You can quickly drop your things off at one of our Algarve luggage storage facilities and spend as much time as you want at this unique attraction. If you want to enjoy Albufeira for longer, leave your belongings in our care for the entire day.

Marina de Vilamoura

See the glamorous side of Albufeira at Marina de Vilamoura. This upscale neighborhood has developed around Portugal's largest marina. Shop local boutiques and prestigious international brands, dine in some of the best restaurants around, or try your luck at the casino.

Algar Seco

Explore more of the Algarve coastline at Algar Seco rock formations. A clifftop walk on an elevated walkway leads to these intriguing caves and limestone rock formations. Visit at sunset for an extra photogenic scene.

Algar Seco bag policy

It’s not safe to bring your suitcases on a clifftop walk, and the uneven terrain will make it an unpleasant journey with bags. Instead, store luggage at a Bounce partner’s left luggage facility. We know many tourists will want to see these cool rock formations, so we’ve put plenty of luggage storage options nearby.
