TSA Travel Tips Tuesday: Lost & Found

Tuesday, January 14, 2014
http://www.tsa.gov/traveler-information/airport-lost-found-contacts

Items are frequently left behind at TSA checkpoints, whether from seasoned travelers or first-time fliers. I can attest that it is an empty feeling when you realize that you left something behind, especially when you realize it at 30,000 feet in the air.

This week’s tip is a common sense one, often overlooked in the sometimes hustle and bustle of travel -- bookmark the TSA lost and found page. If you do leave an item behind, the page has all of the contact numbers for TSA lost & found offices at all airports. It’s important to remember that these numbers are only for items that were left at TSA checkpoints. If you are missing an item in the ticketing or gate area, you’ll need to contact your airline or the airport.

Here are a couple of other blog posts about TSA Lost & Found:

See you next Tuesday with more travel tips!
