Taxi Tips - Lost Items, Farnborough

Updated: 7 days ago


 

What do you do when you've left an item inside a taxi?

It can be highly distressing and worrying to realise that you've accidentally left your belongings inside your taxi ride, here we discuss potential preventative measures you can take to ensure these types of scenarios are avoided.

Private Car Hire Taxi companies (PCH) generally keep a record of the passenger and journey details, which can be a breath of relief knowing that you can do things to ensure that you get your personal items back.


Many people request or grab a taxi from train stations, whether they be coming from connecting trains from areas such as Farnborough Main or North Stations and Aldershot Railway Station.


Our tips prior to your journey:

When taking a taxi from the roadside or the train station, it's best to remember the following: (check tip #4)


1. Take note and photos of the well-known features of the taxi vehicles - the colour, size, make/model, plate numbers

2. At night or un-social hours, another option is to alert a friend of your journey with details on the number plate of the vehicle, as well as pick up and destination details


3. Request for the driver's ID. taxi drivers are legally obliged to show you their IDs or license. You can report to the Taxi Licensing Authorities if a driver has refused to show you their identification.
