Traffic Self Drive can supply child seats free of charge in our hire cars.

Many of our customers ask what type of car seats their children should use. According to UK Government advice: “Children must normally use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135cm tall“.

The type of car seat to use depends on your child’s weight:

  • Babies up to 13kg = Rear-facing infant seat
  • Children from 9 to 18kg = Forward-facing strap-in child seat
  • Children from 15 to 25kg = Booster seat with back support
  • Children over 22kg = Booster cushion
