The Pros And Cons Of Car Seat And Stroller Rental Maui Businesses Offer

By Thomas Walker

Taking trips with little kids has all kinds of challenges. If you plan to travel to Hawaii by plane and rent a car for example, you have to make decisions about whether to rent the baby equipment you need, bring it on the plane with you, or buy it once you arrive. Sometimes the car seat and stroller rental Maui businesses offer is a good idea and other times it makes more sense to do something else.

When you decide to rent baby equipment the easiest way to do it is to add the cost into the daily cost of the vehicle you'll be renting. You can do this when you make the reservation. Agencies generally charge anywhere from eight to fifteen dollars a day for the extra cost. Depending on how long you are renting the car, you may be able to get a discount. One major agency offers AAA members a free seat with a reservation.

Parents who consider using the agency's equipment say the seats they see are pretty basic. The agencies offer safety guarantees. You are depending on the credibility and integrity of the individual business however.

One of the major agencies gives a written guarantee that states they only purchase equipment that meets the standards of state and federal regulations. It goes on to state that the company checks the seats for missing parts and defects. They store seats in plastic to keep them in good condition according to the statement.

You never want to choose quick over safe, but as long as you have inspected the equipment and feel it's safe, renting might be the most economical and convenient option. This is especially true when you will be using the rentals for just a few days and don't want the hassle of taking your own seats with you.

If you're not going to be renting your car, or aren't comfortable renting equipment from a car leasing company, you could contact a baby equipment rental company. You can find them in the major cities. They typically charge ten dollars to sixty dollars per day. These companies tend to have a larger selection of seats with a variety of brands and sizes. This may be a good option for a few days.

Sometimes it makes more economic sense to buy something when you get to your destination. What to do after you get off the plane, but before you have a seat can be a problem. Parents who have done this suggest renting a car with a seat and heading for the nearest big box store. You can buy what you need there and install it.

Once that's done the agency rental can be returned. You will still have to pay for the day, but that cost is minimal. If you have a stroller car seat combination, it often makes sense to just bring it with you and deal with the hassle of getting it on and off the plane as best you can
