What is the Cost to Rent a Car Seat?

Virginia asks:

re: Cost to Rent a Car Seat

How much does it cost to rent two car seats for a rental?





My Response: 

The cost to rent a car seat will vary by car rental company, and may depend on the city that you rent in and the length of the rental.




I have no idea where you want to rent, but to try and get some sort of information, I checked the price of a car seat for a one day rental from Boston, Ft Lauderdale and Los Angeles for Alamo, Avis, Budget, Dollar, Hertz, National, Dollar, Enterprise and Thrifty.

Without knowing the rental location or length, I can only provide an average price. Cost will be determined by the rental location and there may or may not be a maximum charge.

Note: Prices may change without notice... this information was gathered in February 2014. For exact current figures, check the cost to rent a car seat directly with your car rental company of choice, for the specific location of your choice.

Here's what I was able to determine Note that company links open in new windows:

Alamo

The average cost to rent a car seat is $9.99 per day each.

Alamo listed a $60.00 maximum charge per rental per month (for each car seat). 

Avis

The average cost is $13 per day for each car seat rental.

Avis.com listed a maximum charge per rental of $65.

Budget

The average cost to rent a car seat is $13 per day for each seat.

They also showed a maximum charge per rental of $65.

Dollar

The average cost to rent a car seat is $12 per day for each seat.

Dollar.com listed no information about the possibility of a maximum charge per rental, but it may apply. You would have to check a rate with the addition of a car seat and compare multiple length rentals for your preferred rental city, in order to determine if there is a maximum charge limit. 

Enterprise

The average charge is $8.95 per day for each car seat.

They also showed a maximum charge per rental of $60.

Hertz

The average charge is $12 per day for each car seat rental.

They also showed a maximum charge per rental of $84.

National

The average charge is $9.99 per day for each car seat rental.

National.com listed a $60.00 max charge per rental, for each seat

Thrifty

The average cost to rent a car seat is $12 per day.

Thrifty.com listed no information about the possibility of a maximum charge per rental, but it may apply. You would have to check a rate with the addition of a car seat and compare multiple length rentals for your preferred rental city, in order to determine if there is a maximum charge limit.
