Car Rentals & Car Seats
Travel with the little one can be difficult, but do you have any experiences with rental cars and car seats that you can share with Sarah? She writes:
Hello, I'm the mom of an eight-month-old and I'm preparing take a plane trip with her -- alone -- later this month to surprise her grandparents. Because it's a surprise visit, I am renting a car to drive from the airport to granny's house, and I had a question I would like to put out to other traveling mamas who read your blog. I was wondering if you might consider posting it.
...What kind of experience have you had with rental car companies that provide infant car seats? I'm planning to rent a car with a car seat at O'Hare in Chicago but I'm worried that the seat might be difficult to install, substandard, or have other problems. Has anyone had good luck doing this? Can anyone recommend a rental company that provided particularly good service regarding the car seat? Right now I have a reservation with Budget.
