Airport Transfer - Baby seats

Travelling down on a Thursday(and going back on a Sunday) with a group of 9 adults, a 2 year old and 4 month old.

Does anyone know if the taxis at the airport have babyseats or is there another option that would be better.

Hiring a car is not really an option as we are not planning on leaving hobart as we are only going down for a wedding and are not planning on doing any sightseeing outside of walking distance from the hotel

Sadly, in Tasmania taxis are not obliged to have baby seats. You can generally get one by making a phone booking. MaxiTaxi and Silver Service offer them.

The airport shuttle does not have baby seats. :(

With nine adults it may be cheapest booking a peoplemover van anyway, in which case you can ask for baby seats.

Thanks. - Taxis at Sydney airport apparently need to have access to one but have never had to use them as we leave the car at the airport.

Any reccommendations as to good reliable companies to contact

The size of your group is the issue. If you use ordinary taxis, you'll need three - which isn't very economical. If you want a single taxi, try this company which does airport pickups and has space for 11. http://www.hobartmaxiconnect.com.au/
