Child seats (Sweden)
Travel safely with your children
We want all passengers to feel safe and secure while traveling in our cars. When you travel with children we offer rental of child seats from Volvo's new security programme. All these models have severe safety, great comfort and ISO certified clothing (Oeko-Tex Standard 100). The chairs are designed so that the child can be placed rear-faced up to at least four years of age, making car travel more secure. This is because a rear-facing seat protects the child's head, neck and back more efficiently during a collision than if the child is placed facing forwards.
Cooperation with Volvia
A new partnership with Volvia makes our child safety even better. Among other things, hundreds of new child seats are purchased and our staff is trained in child safety. First up are the employees at Hertz facilities Arlanda, Vasagatan and Åsögatan in Stockholm, Jörgen Kocksgatan and Malmö Airport in Malmö Central Station and Landvetter in Gothenburg and Skavsta Airport and the City office in Nyköping. This means that if you book a car with a child seat you now have the seat mounted and ready when you pick up the car.
The following models are available:
- ISO-FIX, Cradle, for the smallest of children, 0-1 year
- Rear-facing/reversible child seat, 9-25 kg from approximately 9 months up to 6 years.
- Booster cushion with backrest, 15-36 kg from 3 years up to 10 years
- Booster cushion, 4 years until the child is taller than 135 cm

Advices for you who travel with children:
Children should be placed rear-faced in the car as long as possible, at least until they are 4 years old.
The law says that children less than 135 cm must use car seat. As long as the skeleton isn’t fully grown the child need to be uplifted to the seat belt for it to be fully protective.
It’s important that the seat belt is placed correctly. It should be as close to the body as possible. Take off thick jackets or pull the belt under the jacket. The jacket may otherwise cause the belt to be placed wrong and therefore not give the best possible protection.
Remember that it is you as a grown up that is responsible for the children in the car. You must be ensured that they are using child seat, seat belt or other protections.
NOTE! The child seat may not be mounted in the front seat if the car is equipped with an activated passenger airbag.
