Beverley Oliver, head of UK sales at Sixt, said: “We’re constantly surprised by what we find left in our cars and vans at the end of a rental.
Wallets, bags, jewellery and loose change are all often forgotten, but it’s the strange things like furniture, musical instruments and items of a personal nature that never fail to astound us.
We make every effort to get people’s forgotten belongings back to them, but as we head into the busy summer period, we would urge customers to take the time to check their vehicles before returning them.”
