Carseats & transfers??

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies,

 

We don't want to have to travel with a bulky carseat that will only be used twice down there. We were looking up the option of taking a shuttle to the airport here that will hold onto our carseat for us until we return home that way we will have it in the states but don't have to lug it to the Dominican.

 

Has anyone else just held their child on their lap for the transfer from the airport to the hotel in the Dominican?? I know it might not be the safest option but is it legal and has it been done before by anyone here?

 

Our son will be 20 months old.

 

Thanks,

Nicole

I was in Cancun in Dec 09, and we never bought our transfers through our TA, so we just payed for the shuttle when we got down there, there was a couple who was trying to get on the same shuttle, they had a child with them id say about 3 years old, they wouldnt allow them onto the shuddle, and im not positive what the outcome was cause the van had already left. I do know that thier is a company that rents and ships to wherever you are, I know they 100% do wheelchairs, and I would assume carseats, actually I think they do 'cause I know my gf has carseats shipped to fl whenever she goes. Let me know if you want the name, ill ask my father.

I'm interested to know this too. I got transfers through my travel agent, and I believe she said that 3 and under were fine sitting on your lap (my daughter will be 2 1/2 when we go down). But i'm not really looking forward to lugging the carseat everywhere, along with all the luggage, wedding dress, etc. But I also want what will be the safest option for my daughter! LEt me know if you find out anything

I actually haven't found anything as of yet :-( I think we are going to have the airport shuttle here in the US hold onto our carseat for us. I heard from many different people that they just held their children on their laps....so we will see :-)

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
