Hi Jim,

First off, I'm sorry to hear of your nasty experience. It must have really spoilt your holiday.

Unfortuantely, now you're back in your home country, it'll be that much more of a pain to organise this report you need.

Currently, the only ways to report a crime in Tenerife are in person at a police station, or by phone.

Obviously, the phone option is the only one available to you. The number is 0034 902 102 112. When someone answers, say "English please" and you will be put through to an English speaker.

Filling in a form over the phone can take quite a bit of time, so, as you'll be making an international call, be prepared for a sizable charge on your phone bill.

I'm not sure what the attitude is of the police to sending reports to another country. You could always ask if they will email it to you or even fax it.

There's also the possibility that they may just say you should have reported it while you were still on the island.

In any event, I wish you luck with getting this issue sorted.

Stolen Jewellery
by: Sue Tallamy

We travelled back from Tenerife to UK on 11th January 2022. We checked in at 2.45 pm and did not see our cases again until we arrived in UK. When I opened our cases it was obvious that these had been opened at the airport as the cases were in a total mess. My jewellery travel wallet was left on top of the case and all my gold jewellery had been stolen. Other items like my manicure set had been left open and iPod case opened and thrown everywhere. Holdalls were left unzipped. Cases were a total mess. As there is cctv at airport and they should know the security officers on duty, this should be investigated. In all the 35 years of travel this has never happened.
