Rent a Baby Seat with Thrifty
When you've got a little bundle of joy, you take a lot of things wherever you go. When you hire a car with Thrifty, we're happy to supply baby seats when required, to make your life a little easier.
Looking after the little ones
Thrifty can provide up to 3 baby seats with your rental car to keep your little one safe whether they're a new born or a toddler at 4 years of age or under. More than 2 seats will require an FCAR or larger vehicle to be booked.
Baby seats are able to accommodate both the rear and forward facing positions, depending on the age of your child. Baby seats will be provided forward facing, unless you notify Thrifty otherwise. Please reply to your confirmation email or phone 1300 367 227 if you would like a rear facing baby seat. It is ultimately 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.
Australian Standards approved baby seats are compulsory in all Australian states for infants under 4 years, while booster seats are compulsory for children up to 7 years. 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, if your child is over 18kg or taller than 100 centimetres, you may need an approved Child Seat.
