Child's car seats

Siège pour enfantIf you own a child's car seat, bring it with you

First of all, most airlines will let you check a car seat with your luggage, free of charge.

Second, you know how your seat works and how to fasten it securely. For insurance reasons, the agents at your car rental location are not allowed to help you to install a rented car seat.

Finally, with the rental cost around $8 per day, you will save money by briging your own seat.
