Important tips for travelling in a car with your children:

* Always use proper child safety seats:

 Statistics show that children who are not properly protected face serious risk in the event of an accident, sudden stop or sudden swerving to avoid road debris or other vehicles.

* Do not hold a child in your lap:

 It is never safe to ride with the infant or child in your lap. Children are not properly protected unless securely placed in an appropriate-sized child restraint.

* Children should always ride in the back seat in vehicles equipped with front airbags:

 Children aged 12 and under should always be properly restrained in the back seat. This is especially important if the vehicle has front air bags. In a crash, children can be injured or killed by an inflating air bag.

Removal of seats is not permitted. Avis accommodates for customers who have special needs or health situations that require specific equipment for their rental needs whenever possible.

Hand controls and seat removal to accommodate for a stowaway or a non-collapsible wheelchair/scooter can be requested with a minimum of 48 hours’ notice. Simply contact the location directly or contact our Avis Reservations on 13 63 33 for more information.

Child safety seats are fitted in the vehicle. For peace of mind it is the renter’s responsibility to check the fitment before driving away.
