I am getting the impression from many posts that it is better all round if you take your own car seat when renting a car in the USA.
Whilst I am happy to do this, I do have a few reservations.
1. Is the car seat likely to get damaged by baggage handlers. If I cant take it on the plane as carry-on, I am not likely to know if the car seat gets dropped and therefore I am putting my child at risk without knowing.
2. Do car rental companies in the US supplier the ISOFIX base by itself? Or will I need to bring this also?
I might be being a bit precious but am keen to hear how others have addressed this issue.
