    Seat Easier to Travel with

    We will be travelling with 3 kids and will be bringing 2 boosters and either a safeseat or a marathon. Do you think it will be easier to travel with the marathon or the safeseat. We will be flying and then renting a mini van. Baby in the safeseat will be appox 8mths old at the time.

    Re: Seat Easier to Travel with

    If you're going to be hand-carrying the seat, the SafeSeat will be easier. If you want to use something like the Traveling Toddler or GoGo Kidz and use the carseat as a stroller, then the Marathon.

    A RF Marathon installed on the plane is usually very upright because there isn't enough room - the Safeseat will be more comfy for an 8 month old.
