Hiring Child Seats with Car or Campervan Rental

Can I hire a booster or child seat when renting a car or campervan? Yes. Most Car rental companies hire booster and child seats on a daily basis whilst campervan and motorhome suppliers use a per rental charge. Further information is below.

Use the 'Comments' field on the booking form to indicate the age and height of the children requiring baby, child or booster seats. This will ensure that the hire company is as best prepared for your arrival and vehicle pick-up as possible.

Please Note - Child safety seating is on request and subject to availability at the rental branch. You are welcome to use your own equipment as long as it conforms to Australian/New Zealand Standard 1754 or applicable standards in the country you are travelling in.

Whilst we always endeavor to publish the latest available information and pricing, as these are managed by our suppliers they are subject to change beyond our control.

Smaller Campervans

Baby and/or Booster Seats cannot be fitted in the smaller campervans (hi-top, 2 berths etc). 4-berth and 6-berth Campervans can accommodate a maximum of 2 child seats (1 baby seat, 1 booster seat OR 2 baby seats). Check the vehicle details page for more information about child safety seats in the campervan you are looking to hire.

In motorhomes and campervans for safety and legal reasons, child and booster seats are not permitted to be installed in front or rear-facing seats.

Child Restraint Information

All children should be seated in a suitable restraint when travelling in a car for their own safety. Adult seatbelts do not offer sufficient protection for babies and children and an appropriate child restraint must be used. Since March 2010 all Australian States and Territories have had uniform legislation covering Child Restraints. All Children under the age of 7 must travel in child restraints or use booster seats.

Child Restraint Categories

  • 6 months - 4 years: Children must be in an approved rear-facing or forward-facing child restraint with built-in harness
  • 4 - 7 years: Children must be in an approved forward facing child restraint or booster seat equipped with adjusted and fastened harness of sea belt. The type of restraint will depend upon the child's size
  • 7 - 16 years: Children aged between seven years old and 16 years old must use a booster seat if they are too small to be restrained by a seatbelt properly adjusted and fastened
