Do airlines charge for car seats?
No – airlines will not charge for car seats and strollers because these are items that are essential when traveling with an infant. This is in addition to the free baggage allowance – so if you are normally allowed to check in 2 bags, you can check in 2 normal bags along with the car seat and/or stroller.
Where do I check in strollers or car seats?
You can check these items in at the ticketing counter, or if it’s more convenient, you can check in these items at the boarding gate itself. This means strollers and car seats are gate-checked. You will be given a claim-stub, but the biggest difference is that you will usually collect these items at the gate of your destination, not at the baggage carousel.
Which is cheaper, direct or nonstop?
Because flying direct means that it would take you longer to reach your destination than if you were flying nonstop, flying direct is always cheaper. So, if you want to save some cash, fly direct. But, if you want to save some time, then fly nonstop.
