Leave your excess baby baggage at home and hire it on holiday.

I am about to tell you a true story. Some of your might be able to relate to it.

My husband is Tasmanian, which means we have done a fair bit of travelling across Bass Strait. One Christmas, to save money, hubby had gone across with our car on the ship & I was flying with the two children.

I can’t recall their ages, but Miss 8 was in a baby car restraint. This had not been sent across with the car as I needed it back in Melbourne. Anyway, I proceeded to check-in and made the flight to Hobart – only to realise on arrival that the baby-seat was still strapped into the car in Victoria.

It is not a good feeling as you kick yourself for being so stupid, then stress about all the accidents you are going to be involved in during the short drive from the airport to where you are staying.

Luckily for new mums these days, travelling is made so much easier by the variety of baby equipment hire available, much of it targeting the travel market.

Forget spending the first day of your holiday at op shops trying to find a baby-seat (I can attest to the fact this is not fun). Arrange to have what you need waiting for you at the other end.

Hire for Baby has franchises around Australia and can help with the hire of a range of baby equipment, including car seats, cots, prams, highchairs and even some play equipment. They even have roll-away beds, perfect for older children.

As a special pre-Christmas offer, anyone who books and pays for their holiday equipment before 30 November, goes into the draw to win $100 cashback on their hire.

With the summer holidays approaching, it is great incentive to get booked now.
