Baby seat rental service

Keep your baby safe right from the very first trip home, with baby seats from the Austrian Automobile Association (ÖAMTC)

ÖAMTC provides baby seats to Goldenes Kreuz Private Hospital which can be rented out to parents for the first year of the baby’s life.

The Maxi-Cosi Rock (i-Size) provides maximum safety for car journeys and meets the requirements of the current i-Size (R129) safety regulation for child seats. In addition to maximum protection, the Rock is also fitted with a cozy insert that wraps firmly around your newborn baby.

For enhanced safety for larger babies, a shock-absorbing material is attached to the upper edge of the sides, in case of impact from the side. Maxi-Cosi recommends a FamilyFix One i-Size base station for the “Rock”. This provides the greatest security and its ISOFIX system allows the seat to be anchored with just a single click. These have to be loaned directly from the ÖAMTC assistance center of your choice.

Terms of rental for child seats in Group 0+
The rental fee for 12 months is just € 49. When you collect your child seat, you will be required to pay deposit of € 1990: at Goldenes Kreuz you sign a completed rental contract and you will then receive an invoice and payment slip from ÖAMTC.

Providing you return the seat in a clean condition the deposit is repaid to you, less the rental fee. If the seat is damaged or dirty, you will be charged for repair or cleaning, up to a maximum amount equivalent to the purchase price. Seriously damaged or dirty seats – in the judgment of the ÖAMTC sales representative – cannot be returned.
