The dealer is the easiest, but most expensive route. They charge what they want, and it's around $200/each from what I've read.

There are other services out there, but you'll likely need at least one of your keys to get the new ones programmed.

A good auto locksmith can program a new key for your car, although it won't be cheap. He would look up your make, model, year, and trim, then bring the right blank key accordingly. Then he would follow a process for the specific car where he first cuts the key to fit, then connects his key programmer to the car's computer, then follows some kind of sequence to download the car's code to the key.

My experience on a Toyota is that most places will charge around $150-$300 (and up). If you can get the car to a dealership, it may be your best bet, and you will get an "official" OEM key instead of some weird-looking off-brand key. You may want to see which is cheaper - towing the car to the dealer and paying them, or paying a locksmith to come to your car. You may find that the dealer is cheaper, and foolproof.

In such cases you fist consult it with the dealer from you get the honda, and if you still think they are going to be more expensive. Then consult it with the locksmith nearby you , ask him to make a new key compare both the prices and get from them whose price is low.

Call the dealership you will have to provide proof of ownership of the vehicle.

You may be able to buy blanks off of Ebay around $120-$140 go to the dealer and have them cut $10 and there looks to be a youtube video on how to program them.

There are several ways around this. Do you have matching door and ignition? A good Locksmith can cut a key off the lock cylinder. So you can take the door lock off and take that in.
Different keys? It can still be done. Need to pick the lock and after that the cylinder can be removed.
Of course there is the drill option. Be careful or you could need a new switch as well.

Yes, finding a locksmith is usually more cost effective than contacting a dealer. When it comes to tracking keys, I used tracker tiles to track my keys, and they were completely useless. Only Tile is excellent, sturdy and very reliable and can make a phone / tablet sound.
