Advice needed on hiring a rearfacing childseat for a rental car
« on: January 22, 2011, 11:19:50 AM »
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum but we are coming to Arillas in May with our son who will be 18 months old then.
I have a question about car rentals and hiring car seats. At home he travels in a rear facing car seat (I won't go into why, I appreciate it is fairly unusual to have an older child rearfacing - anyone interested you can see info at www.rearfacing.co.uk) and I'm reluctant to bring this seat as it cost a lot and I don't trust the airline to take it in the hold without damaging. I therefore feel our only option is to hire. But is this safe? How will I know whether the hired seat hasn't been dropped/damaged in some way, making it useless in the event of an accident? I don't know what other people do? Apparently we are able to hire a rearfacing seat though I am yet to find out more info from the rental company.
Could just do with some advice really from others who have young children. Thanks in advance. [/font]
