Thanks to the advice here the time that I have flown domestically, I have always took our car seat instead of hiring one with the car. In late January, we are going to NZ, and I am again wondering if I should take the seat (new Baby Love Ezy Combo) or hire one while in NZ. Are the seats in NZ ISOFIX, can I therefore even attach my seat?

I don't know about cars and anchor points but both EU and Aust Stds seats are legal to use in NZ.

Thanks IsolaBella. So I would need to contact the hire car company and ask if they have an achor point to attach the seat to? It might be easier to simply hire a seat, I did notice that most of the car companies we looked at had separate categories of restraint for 4 - 7 and 8 - 12, as opposed to just the baby or toddler options we get in Australia.

I would think that maybe the 4-7yrs would be Aussie boosters (probably foam) and the 8-12yrs would be taller EU boosters. Aussie seats only officially needed to last to 7yrs and 128cm, EU seats needed to last to 12yrs and 145cm.
