Car hire with car seats

Child & baby seats for your car hire 

We at SIXT pride ourselves on providing the best, and there are no exceptions when considering your child's safety. With your car hire, we can provide a range of fully legal, comfortable and easy-to-install choice of baby seats depending on your child's age. Below you will find the specifications for each of our child seats we can provide for your car hire at an affordable price. 


What is the difference between baby, booster and child seats? 

Baby seats: 0kg - 13kg 

  • Age: Babies from birth to 15 months 
  • Attachment: Place the seat facing away from the direction of travel 
  • Placement in the vehicle: Can be mounted on any seat 
  • Please note: If the baby seat is positioned on the front passenger seat, the airbag must be disabled 

Child seats: 9kg - 18kg 

  • Age: Infants aged 9 months to 4 years 
  • Attachment: In the direction of travel 
  • Placement in the vehicle: Can be mounted on any seat 

Our child seats face forward and feature improved Side Impact Protection by utilizing deep and softly padded side wings that are able to recline without disturbing your little one. Its special Pitch Control System decreases forward motion in case of an accident. 

Booster seats: 15kg - 36kg

This easy to lift and tall booster seat featuring Side Impact Protection is designed for older children. Its padded headrest provides support and comfort while easily adjusted to the height of your child. This booster seat fully secures your child with an adult seat belt that is naturally positioned over their shoulder and pelvis.
