International Travel Checklist: 23 Things to do Before Traveling Abroad

    Question: car seats.
    Do you bring them and check them at the gate, just rent a car with them, buy a burner seat in case the airlines jostle it a ton (not about to place my Nuna Rava in the hands of others…)? I’ve been trying to book our rental car for driving around northern France for three weeks and keep waffling over the car seat question as the rental companies say they cannot *guarantee* having one at check-in… any experience with this?

      Hi Laura! What an amazing trip you have planned! We gate checked our car seat on our last trip but that was when my daughter was in an infant car seat and it was fairly easy to carry around with us, etc. It was kind of a hassle though, so on our upcoming trip we reserved car seats for both girls with our rental car booking and are going to hope for the best! I know it’s always a gamble though! If you don’t want to risk it, what about a travel bag for your Nana Rava to help protect it when you gate check it? It looks like Amazon has some good generic options that might work?!
