I returned a rental car the other day and left a valuable piece of tech inside (without a shadow of a doubt)
Rang within the hour (after my flight) to be told to ring back on Monday.
Rang back Monday nothing found, searched vehicle several times, complained to managers, re-searched vehicle etc etc.
Keys handed to airport representative, vehicle left locked in their car park and under their control. Seems like they will under no circumstances accept any liability or entertain the idea that their staff have stolen the item (and this is the only way it could go missing from a locked vehicle under their control)
Airport police were great but did say they hadn't had any other reports similar to this.
Is this simply a freak one off opportunistic type theft?
