Family Vacation with Precious Cargo
While most of our time is invested in the packing of bottles, diapers, snacks, favorite blankets, DVD or game systems to entertain the kids on the plane, comfort items and sufficient clothing to accommodate adjusting temperatures of the family trip, it’s no wonder the most obvious items can be overlooked.
We want this focus to be on our smallest of passengers, those requiring infant carriers, convertible car seats and or booster seats. Much of the industry spends their time educating the general public on the importance of safety. We find family traveling to be on the rise and feel now is the best time to remind parents and guardians about how important safety seats are for our youngest passengers.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends booster seats “Until the vehicle seat belt fits properly, typically when they have reached 4 feet 9 inches in height and are between 8 and 12 years of age.” With regards to our youngest passengers it is our intent to follow guidelines. Be that our priority, we make a range of car and booster seats available to our family travelers. The preference is to bring their own personal seats for some parents. The departure process is expedited this way, as it is simply a matter of buckling the seat into the vehicle. Although, if the child’s seats will not be needed on vacation for a rental car, etc. it may be easier to use ours. Alternatively, some families will still need those car/booster seats while away. For other families, the decision to use our seats is more practical possibly for those one-way trips, etc. When asking for a child seat, please be prepared that we ask a few questions as well to ensure the correct seat is supplied for your family trip to the airport or cruise port.
If your family travels take you out of Bellingham, Seattle, Vancouver B.C. or one of the areas ports (Seatac, Bellingham International-Ferry Terminal) and you will be traveling with children, let us help you plan for their safety. Don’t forget to consider those safety seats at your destinations as well. Our goal is to deliver everyone to and from their family vacations safe and sound. It will be our pleasure to exceed all of your expectations!
