Child Safety 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 child travelling with you.

To reserve a child safety seat, simply select the appropriate size during the online reservation process.

We have selected 4 key questions to keep the information simple and succinct. We understand car rental can be difficult and it's our goal to change this by making all our products and services transparent for our customers.

How can I book a Safety seat?

A safety seat can be reserved by selecting the child safety seat option during the 'Add Extras' step of the online booking journey. We cannot guarantee a safety seat unless one is reserved. You will also be asked at the rental station upon pick up whether you wish to hire a child safety seat (if available).

You can also add a child seat to an existing reservation.
