Furthermore, can you rent a car seat at the airport?

Or take your own car seat, if you can. Most airlines allow car seats to be checked baggage free of charge, and some provide a protective plastic cover. Order a car seat ahead of time. Also, after you arrive, someone will need to bring the seat to you at the airport or rental car location.

Furthermore, is renting a car seat safe? Worse yet, there's no guarantee that a rented car seat will be in safe condition. Or clean. Or come with an instruction manual on how to install it. Rental car companies Avis and Hertz told NBC News they provide car seats to its customers as a convenience.

Also, should I rent a car seat or bring my own?

It may make more sense to simply bring your own car seat. Even if you don't plan to use your car seat on the plane, every U.S. airline will allow you to check your car seat for free. Also, your seat may be of higher quality than one offered by the rent car company, which will not have bought the most expensive option.

How do you travel with a car seat?

Most airlines let children under age 2 ride in an adult's lap. You can check your child's car seat with your other luggage, but wrap the seat in plastic or a bag for protection. I suggest buying the baby a ticket and using a car seat on the airplane, no matter the age.

Do booster seats expire?

How do you know when your car seat or booster seat expires? All car seats and boosters have different lifespans. There is no one rule; seats can expire anywhere from 4-12 years from when they were made. Some seats have the expiration stamped into the plastic of the shell saying, “DO NOT USE AFTER” and then a date.

Where do you put a carseat in a minivan?

If you are getting a minivan that has the option of having the passenger captains chair from the second row move to the middle position (honda odyssey), that would be the safest. Otherwise, I like to keep them in the center of the van (2nd row), even if it is in an outboard captain's chair.
