The daily rate for a child seat (booster or full baby seat) is approx $7 - $10 per day. This is payable on collection of the car. You will be expected the fit the seat yourself. Due to this cost we always recommend you take your own child seat with you as most airlines do allow them on the plane in the cargo hold with your main baggage.
With Dollar, in regions where snow can be expected, snow chains can be requested. Make a note in the comments section of the order form requesting these. A local charge of approx $35 is payable on collection of your car.
You can request ski racks for cars from many locations near ski resorts. These are payable locally on collection of the car at approximately $5 - $6 per day. To request ski-rack rental, just add a note in the comments section when placing your order.

When you collect your car, you will sign a rental agreement. There is a clear section showing any charges due. Before you sign, you must ensure that you are not signing for any items you have not agreed to. With Dollar, once you sign and agree to this, there is no way to refund any charges. Alamo allow you 24 hours after signing to go back to the depot to remove / cancel and extras you might have agreed to.

Typical local charges are for options such as Enhanced Road Side assistance, Personal Insurance, GPS Sat Nav, Child Seats, Upgrade if you request this on collection. None of these are compulsary, and if you see any of these items on the rental agreement, DO NOT SIGN unless you specifically want the option.
