Great car hire with quality child seats

We recently used Tots Store for child seat and car hire. We were experiencing problems with car rental companies at Malaga Airport and we were concerned about the quality of car seats they provided. We decided to use the Tots Store car hire service as the car seats were already fitted in the cars for when we arrived and we didn't have to queue with everyone else hiring cars. We were met promptly by Richard and his colleague from the car hire company, Richard had cold bottled water for us all which was very welcome, especially for the little ones. We were taken quickly to the cars which were better models than expected, and the child seats were already fitted and of very good quality. I would have given five stars if the cost had been slightly more competitive, and if we were given a little bit longer to get our bearings once in the cars (we were rushed out of the car park as the parking ticket was about to expire!). But all in all a great service, we were very happy with everything and we will use the service again if we return to Malaga.

We travelled to Malaga with our two boys and needed a car with seats and space for our luggage to reach our hotel in Roquetas de Mar. We did get picked up right at the arrival and 10minutes later we did drive off with happy faces and a chilled water bottle. Registration and services at the airport were easy and simple just the way you need them when travelling with kids. Also the pricing is highly competitive once you need child seats, especially if you find out your car has been upgraded to a bmw with no additional cost 😉 Highly recommended and yes I will recommend you to our friends.

having recently used the new car hire service with Tots store, i think this is a greta addition to their services. We had previously used them for car seat hire, so we had the utmost confidence that the products would be in great condition and as advertised. The whole process was extremely efficient, no long queues or lengthy rental agreement processes; we were in our car in approx 20 minutes. The cars were in good condition, clean and the other tots store products we hired were installed in the car when we collected. I would not hesitate to use this service again in the future. For a family travelling with children, the convenience, speed and cost of the service is a winning combination.

This is an excellent service

The idea is excellent , provide things that people need at not too inflated price ,but above ALL make it easy to access . This company does that and does it well . Have you ever tried placing hired car seast onto a hire car ( as they are not "allowed "to fit them for you ). In the heat of the day and an unfamilar car seat is the last thing you want at the start of a relaxing holiday with the family ( lets be straight , its nvver going to be relaxing but you might as well make it as pleasurable as you can ). We done for being at Malaga . Its a pity you cant be at Rome , Barcalona, Paris and other places we fly to . Thank you

Excellent

We travelled to Marbella last September with a 3 year old and 3 months old and it was a massive helping hiring all the baby equipment as well as the hire car. Richard was most helpful prior with any question I had and met us at the airport with our car and essential equipment that we needed. This was much quicker than hiring a normal hire car ad we were pretty much straight out the airport saving us time having to go to the basement. We were met later that day at our apartment with the rest of our baby equipment. I would have no doubt or hesitation on using Richard again as it was a smooth process and helps your holiday by being equipped for the children.

Fab fab fab!

Good communication from start to finish. Great to get the children's car seats already installed. Staff met us on arrival, took us to the cars nearby and got us off on our way within minutes. We were even upgraded so we had two brand new BMW X1's for the week. Thanks guys - it was the perfect start to our holiday in Spain.

Child car seat safety requirements in Spain

This is a quick requirement check for those families travelling to Spain and reserving the correct child car seat for their children. This guidance will advise you to follow the legal and safety regulations to keep your children safe in the vehicle while travelling in Spain on your holidays.

By not following the guidance below you could face fines (Multas) provided by the local authorities (Police of all divisions) depending on your situation. The officers can be lenient, but if they feel you have put your passengers or other road users at risk, you will face a fine at least!

No child under the age of 12 years should be sat in the front seats of the vehicle unless the other seats are occupied by younger children or objects i.e. the object must be larger than the boot space and require the use of the rear seating area of the vehicle!

Any child over the height of 135 cm (1.35 meters) does NOT require any booster or car seat!

Children under 135 cm (1.35 meters) and over the age of 4 years do require a minimum of a booster or booster back car seat.

Are you renting child car seats from your car rental provider at Malaga Airport?

Important information that you must read!

If you have chosen to rent you child car seats with the car rental companies via the comparison websites and some of the company websites, then you maybe in for a “big shock” with the following information.

Your car rental contract has NO inclusion with the child car seat rental! The car seat is an addition to the car rental.

For example: You have selected the car with some of the additional extras i.e, Sat Nav, Insurance waver and Child car seats.

On arrival to collect your vehicle, you pay the balance and obtain the keys. Now you ask for your child car seat?

These will be some of the excuses that you will be given if your seat is not available!

  • “I’m sorry sir/madam but we do not have any booking for your car seat”.
  • ” There are no available car seat today, but you can come back tomorrow”.
  • Or you may end up with what’s left…i.e. booster seat for a 8 month old baby!

Let me explain how they get away with this illegal problem that they put you in. There is no legal contract for the supply of the child car seat, ONLY the car. The company will do everything to make sure you complete the car rental contract, but the car seat may as well be your gamble when you arrive at the counter.

We have witnessed on many occasions families left stranded at the airport with NO child car seat that was pre-ordered with their car rental. What has normally happens is that somebody in front of them in the rent a car queue has left there car seat behind or the airline has lost it. The staff member takes the next seat from the stack and rents it to that client at the higher rental rate, with no consideration to the client that originally reserved it will now not receive there child seat!

“DO NOT TAKE THIS RISK!”

This now places you in a situation of how to obtain a child car seat to be able to drive away from the airport legally, as Spanish law only allows taxi’s to make a one way journey and no children/babies have to be in car seats!

In four years Tots Store has never let a client down with our pre-ordered Child car seats and other products available from the website.

See our Car Seat clean and safety check list:-

  • Stripped and cleaned after every use.
  • Checked for safety defects.
  • Regularly updated stock.

Or you can take full advantage of our 5 star Car Renal Service with added Child Car seat installation assistance.
