Airport transfers with baby
Lolo20 · 28/04/2022 14:20
Hiya, hoping someone has some knowledge about flying with babies and then airport transfers to the resort!
Me and my husband are going on our first family holiday abroad with our 4 year old and 11 month old on Sunday - to Lanzarote... As part of our package with Jet2 we have a flight transfer included which will take us from the airport to the hotel. What are the rules in Lanzarote/Spain? Do I have to take a car seat with us for the baby for that coach or do they go on your lap? My 4 year old usually has a carseat at home too but guessing he'll be okay on a normal seat for this short ride?!
We're also flying from Manchester airport so wish us luck with the queues 😳Any tips on keeping little ones occupied in the airport/flight much appreciated!!

I'd check with Jet2. They know about the children, so I would expect them to make appropriate arrangements. But.....

If it's a coach then I'd assume they'd sit on your knee. If you want them to sit in a car seat then you'd have to take one with you would be my guess. Not been to lanzarote, but in Tenerife we found it quite awkward to get a taxi with car seats, and it was clear that the hotel/taxi driver thought we were being completely over the top.

Coaches/buses in Spain are the same as in the UK - babies sit on your lap.
It would be very dangerous (and extremely cumbersome) taking a car seat on holiday if you haven't got a car. There's no way to safely secure it on public transport.

I use Atob Transfer, very quality service, comfortable ride and fixed price. If you have a small child, you can either carry them in your arms or bring your own car seat.
