About Stasher and Anthony Collias and Jacob Wedderburn-Day

Stasher connects clients with hotels and stores that can keep their luggage safe in a new city. Stasher works with respected brands and vetted businesses. Each bag is fully insured up to £1000, and their award-winning customer service has led to their impressive 4.8/5 review score.

Anthony got the idea for the company from his friends always asking to store their possessions at Anthony’s home near King’s Cross. He joked, “Sure, but I’m charging you for it”. This joke gave him the idea for Stasher.



Anthony and Jake worked on the prototype while finishing their studies at Oxford. They sent a cold email to the CEO of Big Yellow Storage, James Gibson, who became their first investor.

Stasher raised VC funding from Howzat Partners (Cheapflights, Trivago etc.), VentureFriends and investors from Hotels.com and Spotify. They have partnered with companies including Hotels.com, Klook and Marriott, Premier Inn, Expedia and Accor.
