Tickets to the Maldives, an engagement ring and the keys to a new Bentley car are just some of the quirkiest items left behind by guests who stayed at Travelodge hotels last year.
We may not currently be able to stay at hotels during the time of writing, however that may be a good thing for some forgetful people out there.
Other items left include certificates worth £500,000 and a 'lucky penny'.
The certificates were left behind by a stockbroker who was staying in London, as he forgot about a file.
Meanwhile, company chief executive who was staying in Aberdeen missed his flight home because he left his 'lucky penny' at the hotel chain.
He had to return back to the hotel to pick up the penny, which he has been carrying around for 40 years.
One hapless couple also left behind their marriage certificate at one of the branches.
According to WalesOnline, Shakila Ahmed of Travelodge said: "With millions of customers annually staying at our 563 hotels across the length and breadth of the UK for thousands of different reasons, we do get a range of interesting items left behind.
"This year's audit includes an R2-D2 robot, a William Shakespeare outfit with skull, a money tree bearing £50 notes, a 60-year-old marriage certificate, a six foot cuddly polar bear and a message in a bottle wedding proposal.
"When it comes to why so many of our customers forget their treasured items, it's basically due to us all being time poor, juggling multiple tasks and being in a hurry to get from A to B. In the rush, valuable possessions are easily forgotten."
