    Using North American infant seat in European rental

    I will be travelling with a Graco Snugride Click Connect 35 (bought in 2018) infant seat and base for airplane seat use and while in Germany. I want to rent a car there that I know will work easily to fit with the latch system and will also be big enough, since cars there tend to be a bit smaller then here.

    I am tending towards a VW Golf model but the models there are quite different from what is sold here and what I drive.

    I want to be certain that I won't have issues when I arrive there with my seat in tow.

    Is there anything I should watch out for or should they all fit my seat as well as ones sold in Germany/EU?

    No, I am not interested in renting a seat.

    Thanks!!

    If you are bringing the base along with you, you shouldn’t have any issues at all installing with the lower anchors. You won’t use the base on the plane but you should be able to store it in the overhead bin.
