Losing your car keys can be stressful, especially when it's a rental. Here's what you can do:

  2. Check Rental Agreement: Review your rental agreement for any specific instructions or policies regarding lost keys. It may outline the procedure and any associated costs.

  3. Search Thoroughly: Retrace your steps and thoroughly search the areas where you've been since you last had the keys. Sometimes, keys are found in unexpected places.

  4. Notify Insurance: If you purchased rental car insurance, check if it covers lost keys. Contact your insurance provider to inquire about coverage and any necessary steps.

  5. Consider Roadside Assistance: If you have roadside assistance coverage, they may be able to help you with lost keys. Check your policy details or contact the provider for assistance.

  6. Locksmith: You may need to hire a locksmith to make a replacement key.
