Posting to DC - car seat question

We are moving to Washington DC for 2 years in August. We have 2 DC, DS 2y10m and DD 6mon when we travel.
My plan was originally that we would take DD car seat with us as hold luggage but leave DSs behind as it is quite obviously not a US one and 2 will work perfectlt for DD when we come back. This plan sounded good (to me) as we were going to have a hire car from Dulles therefore could have a hire car seat put in for DS...DH however, has now informed me that he doesn't want a hire car from the airport as it will be a real nuisance for us initially as we will be a hotel, in the centre of DC, for the first few nights. His reasoning makes perfect sense except...its an hour journey from Dulles into DC centre and there will be no carseat for DS in taxi!!!!! I would be willing to risk a five minute journey but an hour on the beltway!!! Can anyone offer any advice/ideas??

Hi Chilledmama,
We moved to DC 3wks ago today with DS 4yrs and DD 2yrs. Both children's car seats were put in hold luggage so that we could use them as soon as we arrived in DC in the taxi you really don't want to drive into DC on the Friday as the traffic is hideous especially near the hotel. Some taxi's do have car seats fitted but you may have to wait a little longer for one of these to become available. Do you know where you will be living? The house that we are in is fantastic and i've already decided that I don't wwant to return to the UK in 2yrs!!!
