Seat belts and child safety seats

Starting January 1, 2008, a law requires passengers sitting in the back seat to wear seat belts.
Customers are advised to fasten seat belts for their safety.

Child safety seats

A law requires children under the age of six to use a car seat as protection and support.
Drivers are subject to administrative penalty if child safety seats are not used.
Please be sure to inform the age of child at the time of booking and reserve a child safety seat.
Please note that a rental car cannot be used if a child safety seat is not reserved, and the driver did not bring his/her own child safety seat.
