Nobody there to take the luggage? An additional service also makes it easier to travel to holiday apartments.

The Tirolean holiday region of Ötztal stands for environmental-friendly and sustainable tourism and is therefore offering all guests who stay at private accommodation or holiday apartment and who arrive by train a special service for sending luggage in the 2020/21 winter season. Guests have the option of sending their luggage to their holiday destination even if no one is on site at their accommodation, in order to receive their luggage before arrival or to have it picked up after departure. The luggage is sent to a central address and, if necessary, delivered to the accommodation upon arrival of the guests. This special service was developed as part of the ULTIMOB research project.

The providers' prices apply to luggage delivery. The extra service will be carried out on a trial basis at no additional cost in the Ötztal Holiday Region in the 2020/21 winter season - in cooperation with the ULTIMOB project.
