Sample Answer:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I often need to travel different areas for professional purpose, and usually hire a taxi from your company every time I make a trip. I made a round-trip from Harmondsworth to West Byfleet on November 23, 2015. Anyway, I am writing this letter to inform you that I left a file folder with important documents in your taxi by mistake and would request you to send back the folder to me finding it.

On that date, I had a meeting with West Byfleet Golf Club and made a presentation. But unfortunately, it took long hours than expectation. That is why I was in hurry to get back to office. When I got back to office, I discovered that the folder in which I kept some important documents regarding the meeting was not brought with me. As far as I recall, I left it at the back of the taxi.

As I need the documents to prepare a proposal for the club, please send the folder at your earliest convenience. I was wondering if you could send it to my office address given bellow. Please feel free to contact me at 042 4587 7692 if you have further question.

With best regards,

Martin Smith.
