Default Lost Both Key Fob's for Push to start Sonata

Good morning all,
I already know my situation is incredibly sh*tty, but somehow we ended up losing BOTH key fobs. My wife called dealer and they said it would be over $400 for new fob...PLUS have to tow the car to their location to program new one. Does ANYONE out there have a cheaper solution to this problem? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Be nice if you told us the year of the car.

The keys are laser Cut. They have to be laser cut on a milling machine.
And the Fobs are remotes. They have to have a computer hooked up to them and they have to be programmed to the car.

If you had Bluelink, According to which car you have.
You could of used it to unlock, Lock and crank your car to get it to the dealer.
Nowdays. If you have a newer model car.
You better keep your keys away from your kids.
And know where they are at all times.
Don't think Insurance will pay for it.
But you could ask for it.
10 yrs ago I had my own locksmith company .
Last thing I wanted to do is make keys for a car.
No money it it with all the equiptment you had to buy.

To me the dealer is not out of site for 400.00

Alas, no such thing as an alternative than the main dealer for these intelligent key fobs. Even the older mechanical keys with a chip were only a main dealer job.
