Bringing your kids on holiday should be fun. Help for parents to start their holiday with ease.
Child car seats
Can I bring a car seat on the plane for my child?
For the safety and comfort of your infant, you are most welcome to bring an approved child’s car seat on board for children aged between six months and three years.
Your child will need his or her own airfare for this, and this will be charged at the appropriate child price. Purchasing a child’s airfare for your infant also means that he or she will be entitled to their own baggage allowance, in which the car seat will be included.
Carriage of car seats is at the discretion of the airline, and regulations may differ with non-British registered airlines. Please call us in advance so that we can make the appropriate arrangements with your airline.
How much will I pay for infant or child airfares?
The child prices listed on our website (including child discounts) apply to varying age groups according to the accommodation you’ve selected. Please refer to the ‘Accommodation Details’ page in your booking for details.
For infants under two years of age on the date of their return flight, a charge of £29 (or £60 for longhaul flights) will apply. This is to cover taxes and charges applied directly to the airline. Seats and In-flight meals are not provided for children under the age of two.
Children aged between six months and two years must sit on an adult’s lap, unless a seat is purchased. In this case, a car seat may be used if necessary. Please note we have a one-infant-per-lap policy.
Passports for children
What is the situation with children and passports?
Children above 16 have been required to travel on their own passport.
If your child is already included on your passport, he or she is not affected by this change and can continue to travel on your passport until it expires or until they reach the age of 16. However, please be aware that some countries, such as Bulgaria, may refuse entry to any children without their own passports.
If a new document is required during the validity of your existing passport, any child who is included on it will need to apply for a separate passport.
Passport application can be a lengthy process, so we recommend that you plan ahead and keep your holiday dates in mind.
