So, there's a semi-popular (and obvious what it means) tag, . There's also a much less common tag (and easily confused with lost luggage, even if it is the idiomatic (British English) term) .

I can't see any reason to have both. Merge down to I think.

  • I would agree with that suggestion (as a non-native speaker). Is it just me or does luggage storage carry something more long-term than left-luggage? – mts May 28 '16 at 12:11

    @mts It does, but I don't think that distinction is so important that they need whole separate tags. I can't really imagine people thinking "Ugh, I followed this tag because I wanted to see questions about storing luggage for periods of up to around a week, but this question's about storing luggage for two weeks! That sort of thing wouldn't interest me at all!" – user56reinstatemonica8 May 30 '16 at 16:42

    left-luggage makes me think of luggage for left handed people, or/and as you said lost luggage. I seriously wouldn't ever think it meant luggage storage. British English is f u n – Insane May 31 '16 at 1:00
  • I agree with your suggestion, they seem too similar to justify the tag difference. Especially considering that the questions it contains are mostly about storing luggage. – JS Lavertu May 31 '16 at 14:18

Sounds like people are in favour, so, if you've got "more than 2500 reputation and a total answer score of 5 or more on the tag", head to https://travel.stackexchange.com/tags/luggage-storage/synonyms and hit the tiny little up arrow next to left-luggage to vote for it becoming a synonym of luggage-storage.

(if you do passionately believe the difference between left luggage and luggage storage is wide enough that two different tags are necessary, you can vote it down there)

We have a tag rename question. Post this request there and it'll be handled by moderators. Relying on tag synonyms is borderline utopian.

    One more vote and we can do it ourselves. Hail utopia! – Zach Lipton Jun 4 '16 at 3:25
