RF seat for toddler in Ireland?
DH and I are planing a trip to Ireland this fall and will be renting a car. DS will be 18 months old at the time but RF at home. The thought of turning him around in a strange place with windy roads and driving on the opposite side of the road frankly terrifies me, so I'm looking for recommendations on RF seats that might fit small European cars.
I think our best option is to buy a new seat there. We could bring our Britax Marathon (it fits in my small european car with room to spare) but I don't trust baggage handling not to toss it around, potentially causing hidden damage. There's no way I'm renting a sketchy seat (for ~8Euro a day, 10 day trip) for the same reason. DS is flying as a lap infant.
Since Irish seats have different models and standards than US and many don't accommodate ERF, I hope some in this community can point me in a promising direction. I expect to spend ~$200 but it looks like some seats can be had for less. We just need something for the trip, safe and a good fit for whatever car we have but not top of the line.
thanks in advance!
