I'm not an expert on Avis but my understanding is if you deal with them direct the cost is:-

USD 13.00 per day
Max. $65 per rental

Those figures are per seat.

Tel 1-800-230-4849 with your booking reference number.

We've got a Bubblebum car seat which we used for Uber on our last trip. Hiring a car this time round so had planned to use it from the airport and pick up a proper backed booster on the way to the villa.

Anyone know the best chain to get one from - eg Walmart, target etc

I would NEVER hire a car seat. Buy a cheap one and take it with you (the hires ones will be cheap). All airlines allow car seats for kids free. We even take for our eldest, who was 8 last time.

We took two car seats with us..what hassle if was.

Tip 1 - get a bag to put the seat in, they are on Amazon for 5 or so but make it easier to drag around.

Tip 2 - take some string or bungee cord or something you can use to tie the seat bags from tip 1 to the airport trolley since the trolleys are pretty small

We always take our own, this year we have 6 and 2 year olds.
2 year old is rear facing here so we take her seat. I have a Trunki booster pack for my 6 yo. He is unbelievable 132cm so almost doesnt need a seat.

I have a big orange car seat bag that has rucksack straps on it. Ive pimped it up this year and added wheels to make it an it easier to move about. Dh will be happy 😃
Tbh its not that much hassle and I would rather them have their own seats that they are comfortable in.

Either, have a look on their websites first. Target will let you know which ones are in stock and a particular store.
