4 year old child

New Arrival

My daughter is 4 and we will be traveling with her in july and we have already purchased tickets. So my question is do I need to bring my childs carseat on board if my rental car company will allow us to rent one at our destination?

While a car seat is not required it's not a bad idea for safety. Several of the frequent posters on here, including myself, recommend the harness available at as an alternative to the car seat. They are small, easy to travel with, and easy to use.
