Child seats

There's no substitute for safety, especially when you're transporting children. Each time you reserve a Budget rental car, be sure to request a safety seat for each child travelling with you.

To reserve a child safety seat, simply select the appropriate size during the online reservation process, or speak to our reservation center agents.

It is required by Finnish law that any child under 12 years old or under 135cm in height (approx 4ft 5ins) must use an appropriate child restraint - Please ask our reservation center or our rental agent at the location to help make sure the correct child seat is fitted.
