* This happens to NancyDrew in the book ''The Captive Witness'', set in communist East Germany, when she is taken to a viewing a film that has been banned by the country's government. Of course, being NancyDrew, she is still able to get a general idea of where she's been taken by making note of how long they've been driving, the sounds she hears, and the number of stairs at their destination.
* Happen in one of the JudgeDee stories, where the victim thinks he was taken somewhere in the mountains in a closed palanquin. Tao Gan, however, thinks it's a ruse- he thinks it more likely that they carriers simply tilted the palanquin and walked around the inner courtyard of a large house, with the occasional "Watch the cliff!" for effect.

* In ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'', Steven has a habit of doing this to Lapis Lazuli when he wants to surprise her with a present. As she's twice as tall as he is, she helps him out by blindfolding herself with her (translucent) wings. It's as adorable as it is silly.

* A LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek told the story of a young woman married to a mafia man. While he was in hiding, she would drive to a local restaurant where she would be met by his associates and blindfolded before being driven to his secret location. The explanation for this was "if you don't know where you're going, you can't tell anyone", namely the cops looking to interrogate her in order to find out where her husband was.
