Baby seats in taxis

Hi we are heading back to our second home kardamena on may 18th,although this will be our 8 th visit,it will be the first with our 6 month old daughter,we were wondering what will happen on the short transfer to the hotel,will we have to put our daughter on our knee,or will some taxis have baby seats available?im sure this topic has been discussed before but we would like to know what to expect before we arrive!!

Some taxis will have car seats but as they take up room in the car / boot when not being used they are less common, as luggage space is usually a premium on airport runs.

When you arrive there is usually a taxi co ordinator on duty and you could ask them to radio a taxi with a car seat if that's your preference. Or as you say the journey is short and sitting in th erear and requesting the driver take the journey slowly is another option.

This is obviously an issue that comes up for those who travel with young children, and I looked on the net and it seems you can purchase "portable travel seats" for children (Available on Amazon etc £18 appx) which are a good idea, they don't seem to cater for very young though, and start at 12 months, so possibly something you may consider in the future.
