Why should I rent instead of traveling with my own equipment?
The reasons are many and varied – It is additional and often bulky luggage.
You may have to pay surcharges for extra luggage on certain airlines, especially with International flights. With increased security at airports globally, increased luggage per person equals a longer check in process. Airlines can on occasion damage and lose your equipment in transit, claims are difficult to file and rarely are compensated in such instances. Traveling with a child is a much more comfortable experience, knowing all your baby’s needs can be catered to at your final destination.
