About Athens Airport

Athens Airport, officially called the Athens International Airport Eleftherios Venizelos, is the biggest international airport in the country of Greece. The airport, which started operating on March 28, 2001, to accommodate the influx of visitors coming in for the 2004 Summer Olympics, serves the city of Athens and the Attica region. It is also the central hub for Aegean Airlines along with other Greek airlines. At present, Athens Airport is linked to 172 domestic and international destinations, including most major cities in the world. Apart from that, the airport is also the primary gateway to famous Greek islands such as Santorini, Astypalea, and Skyros. 

The airport also acts as the main entry point of the Greek capital city of Athens, which is one of the oldest cities in the world and a prominent tourist destination. Athens is a symbol of Western Civilization at its finest and boasts a history that spans thousands of years. While the evidence of its classical history is still prevalent, Athens has evolved into a modern city that’s keeping up with the times. Both locals and tourists will find their time in the city exciting and enjoyable. To make your trip even more convenient, utilize Bounce’s self-storage service, which is offered all over Athens.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!

This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!

I used Bounce during a recent trip to NYC, and I was pleasantly surprised at the ease and convenience of the process. To be honest, at first, I was very apprehensive. The thought of leaving your stuff at a random store, in a place where you are not from and you don't know whether is safe or not, it doesn't matter if anyone gives it a seal of approval, its difficult to be completely comfortable with the idea. However, I was very glad to be proven wrong. The place I chose was a great, clean bodega/deli in Soho and they were very responsive and the whole process felt very seamless. It was our last day in NYC and we had the full day before leaving the city, however our Airbnb was on the upper east side so we did not want to have to go back and forth. I would definitely recommend Bounce for travelers, especially when you need a place to just store your luggage for the day. The price could not be beat (since its for the whole day) and I will definitely be using this again!

Fantastic experience with Bounce! Stored a bag at the Grand Central location and on my last day at the 9/11 Memorial location. Both locations had friendly, efficient staff that were helpful and made everything very easy. Such a great option if your hotel isn't ready or you don't want the hassle of a bag in the city. Great, safe option. Thanks Bounce!
