Infants and child seats

We do not include infants in the calculations below. Therefore, you may wish to book a larger car if taking an infant with you. If you anticipate taking more luggage than is likely to fit in the boot then please ensure you upgrade to a car with a larger boot as roof racks are usually not available. Charges for infant/child seats are payable locally but these must be requested at the time of booking.


All cars will be booked for collection at the airport on your day of arrival unless otherwise stated at the time of booking. Should you wish the car to be delivered to your accommodation a delivery charge will apply.
