Does CAA/AMA rent out free Child Seats?

We often get referrals from clients who have called their local CAA/AMA (Alberta Motor Association) office about Child Car Seat Rentals.

The word on the street seems to be that this Association provides FREE Child Safety Seat Rentals to their members. Unfortunately, this just isn’t true.

What the Motor Association DOES offer is the FREE use of a child seat for members WHEN a car is rented through Enterprise, Alamo or National. Please also note that the use of a child seat at a rental car counter is based on a first come, first served basis. Child seat availability is never guaranteed like your car rental is. Most car rental outlets don’t inventory their seats and there have been many families who have requested a seat at the time of booking only to find the car rental company ran out of the particular type of seat they needed during peak periods. We get the panicked calls from families who are stuck at the airport with no way to transport their child in their rental car!

If you are wanting to rent a Baby Car Seat in your town or a location you are visiting, just google “Baby Equipment Rentals” for that location and at least one or two providers will pop up!
