Help with finding rearward facing seat

Does anyone know if it is possible to HIRE a rearward facing seat that is suitable up to 4 years?
I have family coming from Sweden and the law there is to travel rearward facing until 4 years. They want their child to travel that way in the uk too.
But they are so expensive to buy if you can get hold of one.
The one I have does fit rearward aswell but it says only suitable rearward until 13 kg the forward. And their child weighs 16 kg.
Thank you.

I know some places hire FF and infant car seats but I don't know of anywhere renting RF seats.

Try the forums on, someone on there might be able to help.

Hi, I know the in car safety centre in belfast hires them for children with hip harnesses/casts but not sure if they rent other rear facing seats? You could call them and see. the branch in milton keynes might be the same.

i would suggest that they bring their own carseat with them tbh!

i think you're unlikely to find one to hire.

(p.s it isn't the law in sweden, but most people do it!)
