# Choose the right size child seat

For the safety and comfort of the child, when renting your car, you should choose and add a child seat that corresponds to their age. Additionally, make sure to strictly follow European legislation and use the correct restraint system. Keep in mind that young children should always be in the back of the vehicle and sit in the right car seat. However, in cases where this is not possible, for example, if the vehicle is a two-seater or if there is no space in the back, you can place the child seat in the passenger seat. Be careful though, because in this case, the seat should be rear-facing and not facing the airbag. If you are in the capital and looking for the ultimate kid-friendly destination, go for a car rental in Athens and enjoy unforgettable trips with your family.

#Use car restraint systems correctly

The use of car restraint systems for children in the back seats is essential. Note that the seat belts are specially designed to provide maximum protection for children sitting in the back. For better and proper restraint, you should pass and fasten the seat belt according to the manufacturer's instructions. Don't forget that the seat belt must be wrapped and tightened to keep the child seat stable throughout the vehicle's movement. Finally, it is particularly important to remember that the seat belt is mandatory for children.

# Activating child safety on the rear doors

Child safety on the rear doors of the vehicle is also extremely important. Usually, child safety locks are located on the inside of the two rear doors. Once you activate the child safety lock, you put it in the locked position, meaning the rear door will be impossible to open unless someone pulls the interior handle. To lock the safety in place, simply activate it using the car key. In some vehicles, the process may be even easier with the use of an "on-off" switch. This way, you will prevent any movement from children in the back of the vehicle from making any sudden movement that could cause the doors to open suddenly, even when the vehicle is in motion.

# Don't place things on the shelf

On both long and short journeys, when we have children with us, we tend to overload our vehicle with suitcases and small items. However, what should guide you is the safety of all passengers, especially the small children in the back of the vehicle. For this reason, you should pay special attention and place your luggage and anything else in the luggage compartment, leaving the shelf empty. This way, in case of sudden braking or an accident, you can avoid injuries from objects that may be thrown about. To be even more certain, make sure all suitcases and large luggage fit properly in the luggage compartment and are well secured. Additionally, be careful not to have loose items inside the car cabin to avoid any possibility of passenger injury.

A child seat in a rental car is essential for family outings as it reduces the margin of error and increases the safety of the children throughout the journey. Follow all the steps and take all the necessary precautions for yourself and your family. Shed the stress and set off for the most entertaining journeys with safety and confidence.
