We are taking our 3.7 year old abroad for the first time this year, she will be nearly 4 when we go. We always go to Majorca as have friends there etc.. etc ... and love it there. We never get the transfer coach, always prefer the taxis, I am sure the rules must be the same or similar to ours with regards to car seats etc..
We do not want our daughter to travel in a taxi/car without a booster seat, I am thinking of going and buying a cheap one just for holiday just to be on the safe side. Has anyone else done this and did you put it in your case or what? I know it seems like a bit of a dumb question but not too sure!!!
Will get round to asking our friends at some point but thought I would catch up with some of you here and see what any of you have done.
ANy advice greatfully received!!
Many thanks ..
I don't trust the fragile area - I think car seats are safer just packed in with clothes. We brought both car seats with us last year to Canada and it worked fine. I would take a booster seat, or use the transfer coach.
Alison222, can you tell me more about the seat belt adjuster, we could do with one. I did see one on Dragons Den last year which was already in production but can't remember the name.
Tups, if you take a car seat don't forget to pick it up at luggage reclaim like we did - just swanned off with cases! - remembered half an hour later and had to go through all kinds of departments at the airport to get it! DP said we should consider ourselves lucky it wasn't subject to a controlled explosion!
Thanks everyone for the great advice, I'll check it all out. Our Britax booster seat we have comes already with a seat belt adjuster thing, I'm wondering whether just to take that one and if it gets lost, go and buy a new one, it was only £20/£30.
Still not sure whether to pack it in case or whether to put it through like a buggy - may just paack it in the case as we each get 20kg and don't think daughter's case will be that heavy...I hope!!!
