car seat rental in Lisbon

Car seat rental in Portugal

Portuguese law establishes the obligation to use a car seat in private cars for all children from birth until reaching a height of 135 cm or age 12 years. Don't hesitate to travel light to Lisbon and rent a safe car seat for you child - you will be able to guarantee that you have the right car seat in terms of weight and height.

If you're going to rent a car seat please be aware that you need to choose a car seat according to your child's weight or according to your child's height - don't select it according to your child's age. Below you'll find all the information about weight groups for child car seats:

car seats group 0/0+: newborn to 13 kg (from 0 to 15-18 months), rear-facing
car seats group 1: 9kg to 18kg (aprox. from 12 months to 4 years old), rear- facing or forward facing (depends on the car seats and its instructions)
car seats group 2: 15kg to 25kg, forward facing (aprox from 4 to 8 years old)
car seats group 3: 22 kg to 36 kg (from 8 to 12 years old and until 135cm)

If you decide to rent a car seat, make sure the car seats that you'll be renting have testing certification. If the seat's approval complies with the European standard ECE R44, the seats are organized according to the child's weight, in groups 0, 0+, 1, 2 and 3. If the approval follows the ECE R129 standard, the seats are segmented according to the height of the child, in centimetres. These are the so-called i-Size models, organized by height ranges (for example, from 67 to 105 centimeters). These ranges may, however, vary from brand to brand. 

If you want to go deeper into security testing, check ADAC and Plus Test - ADAC is a German automotive organization recognized for carrying out independent tests on car seats in Europe and the Plus Test is a Swedish certification, carried out by VTI, which tests chairs installed facing backwards (group I and group II). ADAC tests side and frontal impact. The result that the chair had in safety is the most important benchmark. The Plus Test tests the force subjected to the neck in a frontal impact.
