Lost camera in Budapest - help!?

Hi everyone

I got back from a lovely break in Budapest last night. However I have managed to leave my camera in a taxi on the last day, shortly before leaving. To add to the problem I can't remember exactly the name of the taxi company it was. I rang a few (Budataxi, Zonataxi etc) but couldn't communicate exactly what I was trying to ask. I also tried asking some local people for advice but again couldn't manage to get it across. A friend has recommended this site to me to try to see if anyone could help at all? Its not the camera I am bothered about but the pictures on it which mean an awful lot. I just feel I have to try although I know it is a long shot.

Thanks, Ann

You should know the name of the taxi company.

Or your route and the exact time of your travel at least.

And the type of the car.

(And if you've order the taxi, it has mark at the companies.)

Enter into relations with the companies:

ZonaTaxi: info@zonataxi.eu

BudaTxi: ugyfelszolgalat@budataxi.hu

Budapest, Hungary

Dear AnnieMay

I feel for you. Very similarly, I hailed a taxi in the street outside the Central Synogogue in Budapest around 14.45 hrs on Tuesday May 13 2008 to take us to the Gundel Restaurant.

Regrettably I left my digital camera in the back of this tax, in its brown padded case containing a spare battery for the camera and all my memory cards containing photos taken on the camera since I bought it 2-3 years ago.

I would be very happy just to retrieve my memory cards and have the photos taken of Budapest, its environs and the wedding I attended whilst there sent to me by email, I would not insist on the return of the camera, case and battery!

I will follow the advice left by any responses here and wish you well in the recovery of your camera. I very much hope I will recover at least my pictures too!

Best wishes.

Thank you so much to everyone from this forum who has tried to help me. Unfortunately I have not got very far but I am persevering! I am just wondering if there are any taxi companies who are more likely to pick up on the street than others? We got in just by the Zold Pardon outside club, does a certain company go around here?

There is a special tourist police station near Vorosmarty Ter. They may be able to help you. Though they did not ultimately get it back, that's where my friends reported their stolen camera.
