We are travelling to the US next May with our 3 children, aged 9, 7 and 4. We fly into LA and currently the plan is to drive to San Diego, then onto Anaheim and then Las Vegas before flying elsewhere.
Can someone please tell me what the car restraint laws are and do the car hire companies provide adequate seats if I request them? (I usually bring my own car restraints when travelling in Australia but don't really want to do that for this trip if I can help it). I have found a guide for car restraint laws and it states that in California and Nevada children under the age of 5 must be in a restraint, is this a fixed harness and does this mean the other 2 don't even need a booster? (neither of them are tall enough to be without a booster seat in Australia IMO, but they are old enough).
Would it be easier to catch a bus to some/all of these destinations, or even fly a component?
Apologies in advance if I'm in the wrong place to post this question, still trying to find my way around.
