Is it okay to check a booster on a flight if in original box??


New member
I know we can bring the base of the booster as a carry-on & pack the back in the luggage. Is it also acceptable to pack the whole thing up in the box it came in and check it through that way? Or maybe taped up boxes are a no-no nowadays in airports?

We're new to the whole booster scene, so trying to figure out how to juggle all our littles & their accessories!



I purchased a car seat bag at BRU that has a hard base, wheels and a strap. I placed a high back booster in it for a recent trip. The hard bottom and wheels made it very nice to get from the car to counter and then baggage claim to rental car. I was travelling alone with my DS, so it being easy was VERY important!

The bag had some wear on it near the bottom, but the seat made it just fine!
