On Tuesday morning 30th April my wife went to visit the Church in Guardamar whilst we were waiting to be picked up and be taken to La Marina Urbanisation by taxi.

Upon recommendation by a local travel agent I had booked what I think is a non licensed service, through a chap called Yuri who reassured me he knew exactly where the Rosa Tours coach pickup point is in La Marina. So I went ahead.

Yuri did of course  not turn up but sent me a friend who was 5 mins late ; enough to put us into panic mode.

After being dropped at the SuperValu market my wife realised she no longer had the bag but she could not swear whether she had left it at the Church or in the car.

Needless to say there has been no feedback by the driver of that car or Yuri and as for the Church it seems to be left unattended when it is open. There is never anyone we could enquiry with.

Gratefull to read your comments.RegardsLeon

Have you been back to the church and asked the priest (sacerdote) if the bag was found? It's quite possible one of the staff put it in the vestry. Teléfono965 72 90 72 is Parroquia San Jaime Apostol

Have you tried contacting Yuri via the travel agent who recommended him? Might be worth a shot.

A bit late I know, but it does show the danger of using unlicenced taxis, even if they are cheap.

Thank you . I have been to the church three more times and there is never anyone there  attending . The tel number you quoted comes up as being a sort of premium line which my service provider will not connect to. (A premium line to speak to a priest ??!!)

Yes I have learned my lesson with taxi, including the licensed ones (I was stood up at the airport when I arrived ). 

Would you happen to know whether taxis have to display their licence number and Agencies that advertise online are also licensed ?

Kind regards

The telephone number is probably coming up as a premium one because you are using an english phone to dial it. It's an ordinary landline number in Spain but, if you use an english phone, prefix it with the country code 0034
