    Default Do you take booster seats with you when you go to UK on holiday?

    Do you take your booster seats with you when you go on holiday to the UK? I have very light ones so not an issue to check in/carry at other end but not sure if booster cushion will suffice? I have 6/8 yr olds, weights 21 and 23 kgs.
    Thanks.

    It's a child's height that is the key not weight. From the UK government web site:

    Children under 12 and also under 135cm tall must use the appropriate child restraint for their weight (not age) when travelling in the front or back seat of any car, van or goods vehicle. There are very few exceptions (see http://www.direct.gov.uk/think/ - new window. Look for Road safety: hot topics). 'Child restraint' means any of baby seat, child seat, booster seat or booster cushion

    We always took our booster seats with us when we travelled back to the uk.
