It happens to everyone, whether we want to admit it or not, we can all be forgetful. Here at Taxi Choice Insurance we want to remind you of some of the most common items which can be left in a taxi, so hopefully you can keep an eye out in the future!


Women are known for having a handbag on them the majority of the time, it can hold various different items in that keep their life together. Whether it is makeup, their mobile phone, their purse, anything. These are the items that they need the most. But how is it that these prized possessions are left behind so easily? It could be that they are in a rush to get somewhere and forget, they put it in the foot well and do not see it when they leave, it happens. When taxi drivers were asked which items they had found the most in their taxis, over half of them agreed that handbags were the most common.


Most people in this world have probably experienced the situation of losing their keys at some point or another, whether it is in a taxi or not. It can be the worst thing in the world, especially if you don’t have a spare set. According to taxi drivers, Keys are the most common item which they have found in their taxis over their taxi driving days. It can happen so easily because they are so small and weigh next to nothing. Meaning that it’s more than easy for them to fall out of pockets or handbags.

Mobile phones

Seeing as mobile phones have become an extra limb to most humans in today’s society it is still surprising that we still seem to leave these behind. Taxi drivers have admitted that the most common time that they have found mobile phones is after the night shift on a weekend. This may suggest that once people have become livelier and sociable they realise they do not need their phone as much as they think!

Remember to always keep an eye out for these popular items, whether you are a passenger or a taxi driver! To find out more about our policies and what we cover, call 0333 200 0089 and speak to a member of our friendly team for more information.
