Car Seats in Europe

Jump to last reply

We are travelling from Australia with a 2.5 and 4yo in late 2013. I wondered how people have managed car seats when hiring a car? It is a long way to bring our own however i am firstly concerned about safety (and whether hire company seats are going to be in good/safe condition), and also whether ours can even be fitted to european models?

I am open to the possibility of buying some when we arrive however I would have to research which ones and where to buy before we leave because I dont want to waste time searching when we arrive.

We are looking into the euro leasing car option as my husband is keen to drive a new car. I am currently enquiring with them as to whether they offer seats, but I don't think so.

Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

    Hi Travel Kate, I met you on your other thread. We always rent the car seats from our car rental company. It's not a great expense IMO. We have rented from Hertz a couple of times. I have full confidence in the car seats they supply, they seem very sound and comfortable. Although I will point out that for insurance reasons they do not fit the seats themselves, they only supply them, so you spend a good half-hour fitting them yourselves before taking off. This is not a real problem. IMO I would not buy seats yourselves - it would present all kinds of logistical (and possibly linguistic) problems because you would have to locate where to buy seats, then presumably find that those shops are located in big shopping centres outside of the centre of cities (our experience), and - possibly - how to get there with only part of the family able to go in the car ...? Also, if you buy them, will your luggage allowance permit you to take the car seats back to Australia with you, or would you try to dispose of them before leaving?

    I only raise the logistical aspects as a problem as once when we had an apartment In Bremen we decided we needed to get corner protectors for a glass-topped coffee table in the apartment - our daughter was 16 months old at the time and we could see a disaster coming. So we went investigating the Karstadt (department store) in the city centre, and they had none, but referred us to a baby store on the outskirts of town, in an (unaesthetic) suburban shopping centre, accessible only by car. We also had to learn what they were called (Eckenschutz). My husband took the trip out there and found what we needed. Now we routinely travel with these corner protectors. It was not a huge problem but ate into our leisure time, which could have been better spent.
