Traveling with 4yr for first time

New Arrival

This is our first time traveling with our 4 year old. Will we be able to check a car seat for him to use  in a rental care at our destination? Does it count as one of our checked bags? Any special way to pack it, or leave it open?

Hey there! You can check it, it doesn't count toward your bags and it's your decision on how it travels. If you'd like to bag it, SWA usually has special reusable bags available for $15 when you are checking bags. Happy traveling!
