Forgive my amateur questions, I haven't rented a car in years and never with kids that need car seats.

How does that work? We are not bringing a car seat but my almost 3 year old will need a car seat/booster seat in the car.

Also, I took advantage of jj's status matching bit from his milestone post, does that get me anything?

TIA
go with silvercar free car seats irrc

How can I find the cheapest car for either a week or month in Los Angeles?
Need one ASAP and renting with my sapphire reserve so I believe insurance is included.

1/22 2:00 pm

Or how about 1/15 - 2/15?
Would it be cheaper to rent for a month long? Or 3 months?
