Toyota Yaris car keys: how do I replace a lost set?

I have lost the key to my 2005 Toyota Yaris and no spare is availble and the doors are locked with handbook etc inside. My Toyota dealer has quoted about £800 to put a completely new system on the car and says there is no other option. Do you know of a cheaper way of dealing with this?

You might need an automobile locksmith. Be careful. Quite a lot of rip off merchants out there.

For fresh keys try a branch of Timpsons in the High Street, side street or in a Shopping Mall.

No joy there, links to keys and locksmiths in this directory:

The first two on the list apparently give very good, very fast and very
cheap service.
