Looking after the little ones
Australian Standards approved baby seats are compulsory in all Australian states for infants under 4 years (depending on height and weight), and booster seats are compulsory for children up to 7 years (depending on height and weight). Most child car seats are fitted using the car seat belt and a tether strap that attaches to an anchor point. It is important the seat is appropriate for your baby's age and weight.
Thrifty can provide up to 3 baby seats with your rental car. More than 2 seats will require an FCAR (eg.Toyota Camry) or larger vehicle to be booked. Just make sure you select the appropriate seat at the time of booking in our options and we'll ensure that it's waiting for you upon your arrival.
Both forward and backward facing seats are available, please let Thrifty know of your preference by replying to your confirmation email or phoning 1300 367 227.
It is the responsibility of the accompanying adult to ensure the seat is fitted correctly and is the right seat for the age and size of the child - Thrifty takes no responsibility for incorrect or unsafe instalment. For further details and help selecting the right seat for your child please refer to: http://www.kidsafe.com.au/crguidelines.
