Extra fees for advance rideshare reservations

Did you know: Uber, Lyft charge extra for advance reservations


It’s not unusual for rideshare passengers to accidentally forget their cellphone, keys or other common belongings in the vehicle. But Uber says people sometimes leave behind far more unusual items.

The company’s latest list of the oddest things riders forgot includes a toupee, a live turtle and a panic button. People are also prone to leave behind bulkier objects, such as a guitar. The most absent-minded passengers? Residents of Miami, Florida, while the most common time to forget personal belongings was 9 p.m. to 10 p.m., Uber said Wednesday. 

The rideshare provider said the best way to retrieve forgotten items is to call your driver. If you’ve left your phone behind, however, you can access your Uber account from a computer and contact your driver through its app. 

Here are the 50 most unique items left behind in Uber vehicles over the last year as described by passengers:
