Car Rental Car seats
« on: December 26, 2013, 10:47:57 PM »
Going on a 6 day vacation with a 20 month old and 3 year old, is there any alternative to paying $12 a day each kid for the car seat at the car rental place? I book my enitre trip with miles, and they don't allow me to pay this with miles..is there alternatives?

But if you're an AAA member it should be to difficult to show them a card.  ;)
Unless of course, you're not. In which case...
+ you only get 1 free seat.

You can rent from National and use the Car & Driver code and get up to 2 free child/toddler seats.

Now that we're on the topic, he reliable are the rental companies with the availability of car seats?
They generally have a lot in stock or only a few

not to start a safety discussion but if a car seat was involved in an accident it's not really supposed to be used anymore.
I've always taken car seats on the plane and allowed them to gatecheck it if not needed on the plane

I know its a shlep, but I've always just checked in our car seats. United usually has bags. AA never had a bag, but we have out own, it's free to check on if not all then most airlines, and you have the peace of mind that it's up to your safety standards.

Just did a JFK-LAX-JFK trip.
AA and Delta were more than happy to gatecheck.
