Venice Airport Luggage Carts
||LEFT: Venice Airport's
luggage carts are built for bulky, heavy loads.
When you're walking the 7
to 10 minutes that it takes to reach the
airport boat and water taxi piers from the passenger terminal at
Venice Marco Polo Airport, a luggage cart
can be a godsend--especially when it's free.
We're happy to report that VCE has hundreds of big, sturdy
luggage carts in convenient locations around the airport grounds.
To use one, simply insert a 50-cent, 1-euro, or 2-euro coin in
the blue locking device on top of the cart. The chain that locks the cart to the
ones in front of it will be released, and the cart will be yours for as long as
you need it.
you've finished with the cart, simply return it to a row of baggage carts and
lock it to the cart in front of it by reinserting a chain. The locking device on
your cart will eject your coin.
To see how easy it is to get your money back, watch the short
luggage cart video on our Venice
Note: Shopping carts at many European
supermarkets use a similar coin-operated locking mechanism, so once you've used
a luggage cart at Venice Marco Polo Airport, you'll be able to grab a cart like
a local when you''re ready to stock up on groceries.
