    So I saw this on TA and sounded like a good idea -- sorry if it has been posted before. It was a suggestion from an airline ticket agent

    "If you are going to be in a cab....take a picture of the cab company on the side of the cab, take a picture of their operators permit, and take a picture of the license plate. This is in case you leave something in the cab.....there are hundreds of cabs here and at least 5 cab companies. In case you leave something in the cab and need to find it right away."

    I thought it was a pretty good idea -- plus if you start off by snapping a photo it might discourage getting tunneled. I don't know if I would take a picture of the operator's permit but taking a photo of the cab with the Cab # sounds like a good idea.

    if you were organized enough to take these pictures every time you got in a cab,

    you are probably organized enough not to leave important things in the cab.

    With my luck, I would leave the camera / phone that I used to take the picture in the cab!

    Good idea. I always take a picture of my room number because I can never remember it when I come back all "bleary eyed" at the end of the first night.

    Never done this before, but if I ever return to Aria I will.

    3-4 digit room numbers ... easy. 5 ... easy to slip your mind.

    These replies are a lot better than the ones on TA -- I have never left anything in the cab. I have one bag I take with me on the plane and my husband has a small backpack. When I get out I always check the back seat. But you do see it frequently that people leave things behind -- Many times you guys put the cell phone in the pocket -- so maybe that would not be left behind.

    I wrote down in my cell phone notes our lot # and space at the airport a few trips ago. I forgot to turn my phone off and it died. When we got back we could not find the correct space. -- Luckily my husband has a good sense of direction and was able to find it without too much difficuly

    I do take a photo of the hotel room # -- I can't remember that many numbers after a tequila fog sets in.
