What to Do When You Lose Something in an Airport
There’s nothing worse than losing something, but it’s usually magnified when that thing is lost while traveling. Yahoo Travel recently wrote an informative piece about what to do when you lose something in an airport. The takeaways are:

  • If you lose something make multiple calls and file multiple claims. Best to start with the airline’s, the airport police’s, and TSA’s lost and found
  • Trace your steps if you can’t remember where you left something
