Bring a car seat to Slovenia? Rent one with car? Or use trains/buses?

Jump to last reply

We're planning a family trip to Slovenia in May with 2 young children (3 year old and 11 month old), and I'm trying to figure out the best way to travel there and get around, and particularly what to do about car seats. As I see it our options are:

1) Bring carseats from home and rent a car. Advantages - know we have car seats we're familiar with; can possibly use on plane. Disadvantages - Extra stuff to haul around, particularly if we have to change planes or have to check them; could be problem if checked car seats are misplaced by airline en route; may not be certified for use in Europe or fit well in rental car.

2) Rent car and arrange for carseats from rental agency. Advantages - can travel much lighter & with less hassle; shouldn't have to worry about whether certified for use in Slovenia. Disadvantages - relying totally on rental agency to provide car seats (if don't have them when get there, we're screwed); won't know quality of seat til get there; extra cost to rent car seats?

3) Use public transportation only (trains & buses) and avoid need for car seats altogether. Advantages - avoid car seat hassles & travel lighter. Disadvantages - Hassle of public transportation could be greater, esp. with 2 kids; not sure how well public transportation covers Slovenia

Does anyone have any advice on how to travel in Slovenia with 2 young children? Can you think of anything to keep in mind that I'm leaving out? We are traveling to a wedding in Slovenia near the Croatian border (and Zagreb), and will probably extend the trip a few days to vacation in the surrounding area. Our itinerary is open, so we could tailor it to places that are accessible via public transportation if that is recommended. But if the best family-friendly places to visit are best accessible by car, that will be a factor in our decision too. I should also say that we're from the NYC area, so are not totally put off by traveling with young kids on public transportation (like the subway and regional train lines).
