Baby Seat, Child Seat & Booster Seat

As it's important that your child has the safest journey possible, Hertz offers a range of child safety seats that are suitable for babies and children. The regulation requires that a child under 10 years should use a child seat. It is therefore essential to use a seat that is adapted to the age, weight and morphology of your children.
There are three main types of child car seats. Hertz has put great care to choose the best seat so that your child is safe:

Baby seat: Hertz can provide you with a baby seat mounted rear-facing to be used for infants who weigh up to 11kg. These seats are designed to support a child’s neck, back and spinal cord. The baby seat must be installed rearward facing. The baby must be installed rear-facing as long as possible (preferably up to 11 kg or until the top of his head reaches the top of the seat shell and at least until that he weighs 9 kg and can sit up unassisted).
The baby carrier is available at Rs 161 (VAT incl.) up to Rs 1127 (VAT incl.). The price remains unchanged for a rental of 7 consecutive days or more.

Child seat : As from 1 - 4 years, for a weight ranging from 11-18 kg. Hertz can provide a child seat to be installed facing the road. We recommend the use of the seat to be installed rear-facing as long as possible and not to use the seat facing the road until the child is of a higher minimum weight of 9 kg and is able to sit upright unassisted.
The seat is proposed at Rs 161 Rs 161 (VAT incl.) up to Rs 1127 (VAT incl.). The price remains unchanged for a rental of 7 consecutive days or more.

Booster seat: Hertz can provide a booster seat that should be used on the rear seat. If the child is too big to use a booster seat, Hertz reminds parents that children must use the seat belts.
The booster is proposed at Rs 161 Rs 161 (VAT incl.) up to Rs 1127 (VAT incl.). The price remains unchanged for a rental of 7 consecutive days or more.


Here are some points to remember when traveling with a child in a Hertz vehicle:
  • Children aged 3 years or more (measuring up to 1 m 50) must use a restraint system that’s appropriate for their size when traveling by car.
  • Babies using a child seat disposed rearward facing should be placed on the back seat, never in front. Child seats arranged back to the road should not be installed on a seat protected by a front airbag.
  • Young children should always be installed in the back seat and be properly restrained in a child seat facing the road.
  • Children who can not use a child seat should use a booster seat. Always fasten your seat belt and make sure that everyone does the same in the car.

Remember that seat belts for older children and adults should always be used. Passengers should not wear their seat belt under the arm or behind their back.

Hertz will install the seats for you. Although we have secured the seat, it is the renter’s responsibility to check and adjust the mountings, harness / straps / clips, and the suitability of the provided seat in relation to the child’s weight, size and age as well as ensure that the seat is properly installed and fitted and that the child is firmly and appropriately secured.

The safety of your child is utmost and Hertz car ensures that you & your family travel safely. We would recommend that you book your baby seat / child or booster seat upon booking your car online.
