If you rent a car seat at the destination, make sure you thoroughly check it to make sure it has not been in an accident before. Renting or buying a second hand car seat at the destination means that you will be risking your child's safety and life. Buying or renting though a trusted relative or simply buying a brand new seat for your baby is the best option to go for.
For children generally over 2 years and 20lbs you can consider a car seat that is forward facing. A good choice at this time is a convertible or combination seat. This will act both as a car seat and a booster seat. Although they tend to be more expensive this is more than outweighed by the fact that one seat will last for 8 or 10 years. Make sure once again you choose a seat with a 5 point harness for additional safety. It is a good idea to choose a seat with a cup holder to help with those lengthier journeys.
Like anything else associated with kid gear, seats can come with a bunch of features and options. All of them should be adjustable to allow for proper positioning of the shoulder and lap belt as the child grows. Some are designed so you can do that with just one hand and that can be a real convenience. And if the kid is drinking coffee, you can get models with armrests that have cup holders molded in along with a foldable snack tray.
