Child Safety Seats and Booster Seats
There's no substitute for safety, especially when you're transporting children. Each time you reserve a Budget rental car, be sure to request a safety seat for each youngster traveling with you. Your next happy trip begins with buckling up the kids!
Child safety seats are about $13 USD per day with a maximum of $65 USD per car rental. Always use a rear-facing infant seat for an infant up to 22 pounds; toddler seat for a child up to 40 pounds; and child booster seat for a child over 40 pounds. Due to liability issues, Budget personnel are not permitted to install child safety seats into vehicles for customers.
At corporate-operated locations, if your child safety seat reservation is made 48 hours prior to pick up, we guarantee availability. Within 48 hours of pick up and at licensee-owned locations, your request will be held with your reservation, but child seat rental is made on a first-come, first-served basis. In that case, availability is not guaranteed.
To reserve a child safety seat, simply select one as a rental option in Step 3 of the online car rental reservation process.
