Lost and Found

We have all forgotten things as we get out of the car at the airport. You jump out, say hello to your meet and greet driver, get your luggage on a trolley and stroll into the terminal towards check-in only to realise you left something behind as the car drives away.

Normally it’s a phone, wallet or considering the destination, a passport, although some customers do forget some very different objects. To acknowledge all those customers who ask us to return to the airport with their forgotten items, I Love meet and greet has complied a list of both the most often and the most unlikely forgotten items.

"We are meeting and greeting thousands of customers every week and even though our drivers always perform a last minute check with the customers, some items are going to be forgotten," says Sarah Anglim, Founder and MD at I Love meet and greet, "Lost phones, wallets, and tickets are obvious, although being at the airport means we do see more travel or holiday related items. And once the customer calls us, we can return the item to them in a matter of minutes, being so close to the terminal.”

Most likely to leave in car by mistake:

  1. Passport
  2. Phone
  3. Tickets
  4. Sunglasses
  5. Medicine
  6. Wallet

Over the years I Love meet and greet has seen a fair number of unusual items left by mistake in cars. Sarah adds: “One of our drivers drove a seven-seater people carrier away from the forecourt, after checking that the family had all their belongings, only to discover that there was a baby in a baby seat on the back row. Needless to say, he immediately turned around and drove straight back to the forecourt.”

Sometimes the instructions from the customers about the item can be just as entertaining. For example, the customer who forgot his chilli plant, emailed precise instructions on how to water the plant for the three weeks he was away. Unfortunately, the customer who forgot about the frozen chicken under their seat for their two-week summer break left no instructions and had to drive home with all the windows open.

Unlikely things left in car:

  1. Baby in a seven-seater
  2. Chilli plant to be watered
  3. Spare prosthetic leg/arm
  4. Fully decorated Christmas tree on the passenger seat
  5. Frozen chicken
  6. Complete human skeleton with seat belt on
