I do normally do this as I don't want to compromise safety by just getting cheap ones. This time we are only getting the car for part of the trip so will be carrying car seats around that we don't need. If the Avis ones were maxed at $65 ($80) that's def an option but looks like that is not guaranteed.
Thanks for the replies

I know what I would be doing.
E Mail Avis in the US and ask about the max cost of the seat if added on out there.
If the reply is what it says online I would then print that response out and take it with me in case they go back on that price at the desk.
Forewarned is forearmed.

We take ours with us. We take it out of the car, bag in then check it in. At the other end, we just take it from the baggage area to the car lot.

I was not impressed with the quality of the car seats on offer when we had to use one temporary, as our car seat missed the connection flight last year. I was very happy to get ours back the next day.

An e mail to Avis was my next step. Will report back a response if I get one.

JUst FYI- there is no correlation between car seat price and safety in the US. For many of the more expensive ones, you are paying for the "prestige" of saying I have an x car seat.

DDinlaw in a physiatrist and as a physician who deals with head and spinal cord injuries is super safety conscious. While she is firm about the need for a car seat (and you can use one on the plane), she and my son are strong advocates of not breaking the bank to get one. I know one of the less expensive ones at Walmart is one of the highest rated in terms of safety.

Whatever you do, the bottom line is never, even to go across the road, transport a child without a car seat.
