Thank you for this awesome service. The harness was super easy to install. My cousin is a commercial pilot and always talks about the most critical part of the flight being take off and landings. Being able to have this harness on my 2 yr olds first trip gave me a lot of relief that she was protected if anything went wrong. I'm glad you have this service of renting the harness.....

This was my 2 year olds first time flying and my husband and I were not looking forward to dragging around a car seat. That's when I did some research and found the CARES rental service. It is fantastic! The harness arrived in plenty of time for our trip. Use of the harness is pretty basic and easy. And returning the harness was a breeze. I'm so glad I found this service and will definitely be using again if we take another trip that requires flying.

Thank you rentCARES!

Overall this is a good program. We had to travel for a family event and it was not worth buying a CARES Harness for a one-time usage.

The unit arrived in plenty of time and was fairly easy to use.

**No instructions for use were included in the package and no information about return shipping is provided. Plan on using Youtube to figure out how to use the harness. It is not hard, once you have see it done.**

You have to ship the unit back yourself and you are expected to just figure that out on your own. Even with the extra expense of return shipping it is still worth it, However it would have been nice if they had explained the shipping, or anything really, when you order.

CARES rentals has great customer service! We saved a lot of money by being able to rent. The CARES rental arrived promptly a few days before we were scheduled to leave for our trip. The rental was clean and in great condition. Thank you for your service!

Nampa, ID

To be able to rent these harnesses and not worry about carseats on an airplane is amazing. They arrive in plenty of time for the trip and printing return labels is very easy. It is a great product that can be installed within a minute that makes traveling with 2 small children by myself a breeze. I recommend this rental system to anyone that I know who is traveling with children.
Some flight attendants may not be familiar with the CARES harness so they may question you about it. I have only had one issue but I politely held my ground and showed them the FAA approval on the harness. Case closed-they have to let you use it.
I have rented the harnesses twice and will continue to do so in the future until my children out grown them. I don't travel that frequently to merit purchasing my own so thank you for offering such a great and convenient service!

First, I want to say that using this service, from ordering to return of the harnesses was just seamless & a great decision for us. I ordered my harnesses, I made an error at checkout wherein Cherry responded very quickly to my email and resolved the issue with great ease. No fuss!
The harnesses arrived insufficient time for our trip but then I knew they were coming from their timely email with tracking info. They were very easy to use and made the trip so much easier than traveling with actual car seats (I had car seats waiting at our destination). The girls were secure in the harness during flight and felt like big kids making the flight fun for them. Upon return, I just placed the harnesses in the available envelope and mailed it back with insurance recommended via our post office. I will definitely recommend to my friends traveling with toddlers.

I was very pleased with the ease-of-use with the harness. I will suggest this service to anyone who will be flying with a child that does not meet the FAA guidlines on height & weight.

New testimonial from Ann H, Providence RI

Thank you for your fantastic service! The harness arrived early enough that I could check it off my list without worrying at the last minute. After so many flights where I have lugged a huge, heavy carseat on board, I was delighted to find this service to use while flying alone with my kids. I knew I would not be able to manage kids, carry-ons, and a car seat by myself...so this was a game changer. The toddler was secure in the harness, and he could not wiggle out (as he would have with just the lap belt), and it was so convenient to bring only the little harness along. The grandma sitting behind me was so impressed that she copied down your web site to share with her family. THANK YOU for saving my back and my sanity!

Testimonial from Beth

We used Rent CARES with our 2 year old twins on a recent flight to FL. I had originally rented 3 harnesses but realized my daughter was too tall for the harness before it was mailed to us. Customer Service with the company was AWESOME. Very responsive and timely. We were able to cancel the 3rd harness without a problem. The harnesses arrived in perfect condition and all went as planned. I'm so grateful to have had the peace of mind while traveling! Thank you, Rent CARES!

Testimonial from Dawn Duda

We used a CARES harness for our 3 year old to fly to Orlando, Florida. Our harness arrived in plenty of time before our trip. It was impressively clean, it looked just like new! The harness worked great. Will definitely use this website/service again if needed.

Dawn Duda
Howell, NJ

I discovered RentCARES.com thanks to a post on a local mom's Facebook group. I had no idea something like this existed, and what a godsend! I was so worried about restraint for my 4-1/2 year old daughter on our trip from Iowa to California, knowing that a lapbelt isn't sufficient for a toddler, and she was over the weight limit for most carseats.

The CARES harness arrived right on time and was a breeze to use (my husband could do it, no problem, and that's saying a lot, LOL!). Returning it was equally easy with the ability to print and pay for a mailing label from my home computer. Super easy and I'll definitely be using RentCARES.com again for future trips.

Lydia F.
Iowa City, IA

We used the CARES harness on our trip from Green Bay WI to Vancouver BC with our 3 years old daughter. It was so easy to use, and the flight crews on all 4 of our flights were impressed. Thanks for such an awesome product. We will definitely use this service again!

Abby Malcolm
Green Bay, WI

Such an amazing company to work with! The product is great and made traveling with 3 toddlers so easy. Above all, they have great costumer service! I highly recommend renting from this company on your next trip!

Sara Simons
Nashville TN

I am very happy that I found this site. It was very easy to order and return, and easy to use as well. Much easier than lugging around a car seat, and much safer than just a lap belt. I would for sure recommend it to anyone traveling with small children that are too big for your lap.

Meredith H.
Rogers, AR

I have rented the CARES harness twice already and found the ordering process easy and efficient. I have always received the harness well before our scheduled flights and the one week return time seems to be enough to mail it back to the company.
The harness is easy to install and provides a safe and easy way to keep my little one belted in. We've experienced terrible turbulence on our last flight home and the belt gave me peace of mind that my little one would not slip out of her seat.
Most flight attendants are familiar with the harness and have commented that it is a great thing to use. I did have an issue with a passenger claiming the harness prevented her tray table from closing properly. The flight attendants intervened to make sure my daughter could still use the belt. We simply slipped the belt over the tray table when it came time for landing.
I highly recommend using this harness because it is easy to use and saves you from using a car seat in the cabin. Renting from Rent CARES couldn't be easier.

Betty Burciaga
Rockville, MD

We were very happy with the ease of getting the harnesses and the return process. The service is great and the response to questions is extremely fast. I would recommend Rent CARES to anyone traveling with small children and we will definitely use this service again!

Marin Herndon
Apple Valley MN

I am extremely happy with the Rentcares service. We received the harness on time, and purchased the return label through the website making things very easy. We did not wind up using the harness as my daughter sat in her seat without it, so I can't comment on how it worked. However, the rental fee was worth the peace of mind, and I will use rent cares again for future trips.

Nicole DeNude
Nutley, NJ

The harness worked out well. First flight for my 3.5 year old daughter, and it was 4 hours long. As soon as she sat in her seat she asked to be buckled in and was comfortable the entire flight. I only wish it had a way to loop under the child's body to keep them from slipping down after lots of wiggle time, but all-in-all, it was very helpful & a great price.

Joey Kautzer-Parkin
Glendale, AZ

This worked perfect for us! So inexpensive and easy. The flight attendant told us she wished more parents would rent these to keep their kids safe. And when it's this simple, why wouldn't you?

K. Christel
Muskego, WI

The harness worked great. Received it in time and was very convenient instead of dragging a car seat around. Will definitely rent again. Thank you.

Joseph
Schenectady, newyork

I was searching for the best way for our three year old grandson to safely fly to East Coast to visit extended family. In my search I discovered the RentCARES. It was so simple. The harness arrived week before our flight. It was convenient to place in a backpack and easy to adjust to airline seat. It was much easier to deal with than a car seat. Return instructions were clear. There is no question that if he should be flying with us in the future we would rent harness again. Thank you.

Cheryl Donkin
Buellton, CA

I cannot say enough good things about these CARES harnesses! I was so nervous to be flying across the country by myself with my two young children. I physically could not lug 2 carseats and all of our bags through the airport and onto the airplane on my own. The CARES harnesses were sooo much simpler! Recieving and returning the harnesses was a piece of cake and they fit right in my purse! I love these and would recommend them to everyone!

Jessica West
Tucson, AZ

I came across the CARES harness by chance while looking to purchase a portable DVD player on another site for my toddler. I saw the CARES harness and thought immediately about how convenient it would be to have one since I was flying to California to see my sister who already had a car seat for my daughter to use during the trip. I thought the price might be worth the convenience and decided to look up reviews when I found this rental website. Our harness came a few days before the trip. Very easy to install! VERY happy customers!

Melody
Avon Lake, Ohio

We had to plan an international trip suddenly and planned not to bring a car seat as it was not required at our destination (besides, the driving speeds there are slow due to heavy traffic although we realized the potential risks even with slower speeds). I was about to purchase a CARES harness when I found RentCARES.com. So happy with the service, and our 3-year-old felt so proud buckling herself in. Thank you!!

Sbandi family
Anthem, AZ

I took my 3 year old on a trip and the Cares really helped keep him seated. It made him feel safe when we landed and made boarding the plane much easier then taking a car seat. Receiving the cares was easy and easy to install. I would rec amend this to anyone with small kids.

Tamela
Tucson

I was taking my 4 year old son on his first plane ride and began researching the best way to secure him in his plane seat. I didn't want to try to bring his big car seat on the plane, so I looked into harnesses. The CARES harness impressed me with the ease of installment, how compact it was for my carry-on bag I had to carry through the multi airports, and how secured my son was in his seat. He even liked buckling himself in! I LOVE that I was able to rent instead of purchase, it came to me a few days before our travel date, and it was very clean.
Thank you!

Want to know how to win over flight attendants while traveling with your special needs 2 year old? Show up with a Cares harness! We had all the flight attendants swooning over our daughter because we had the harness. She has low muscle tone and it worked really well for her! We would highly recommend renting a Cares harness from Rent Cares!

Julie Kauffman
Mountain Home, AR

I'm so happy I found Rent Cares! We just traveled to Australia with our two and four year old boys. Needless to say we won't be traveling again for a while and I really didn't want to spend $150 to purchase two Cares harnesses that we may never use again. Rent Cares was inexpensive and so easy. If we ever decide to take our crazy children on an airplane again, we'll definitely be using Rent Cares!

Ashley
Chattanooga, TN

We rented our harness for our 2 year-old on a flight to Disney. The harness arrived early and was in perfect condition. I would highly recommend renting from Cherry and the crew at Rentcares.

Jason
East Lyme, CT

It's an understatement to say we were not excited to fly across the country with our 2 year old while my wife was in her third trimester. When we found out we could rent a CARES harness and not lug a huge carseat all over the airport, it was a huge relief!

Our little one loved it – she was completely comfortable between us for the entire flight, and when it was time to get off we just stuffed the harness in her diaper bag. The whole process couldn't have been easier!

Joe
Chicago, IL

Simple and easy! Arrived a few days early, easy to install and kept my littles secure and seated the entire flight! Happy mom, happy boys and happy co-passengers! ?

Wendi
Dallas, TX

I wanted another way to keep my 2 year old little boy safe and secure as we traveled. When I came across this website, it made it so easy to order. We received it 2 days before our trip and it was so light and convenient to travel with.

I was able to install it quickly and easily and the Flight Attendant said that she loves them and recommends them to other passengers when they bring their car seats on the plane.

We would use this service again the next time we travel!

Mary
Denver, CO

I stumbled across this site looking for something I could use to better secure my 2yr on a plane ride. I read the testimonials, so I decided to give it a try. It beats paying $75 for one! I received the product in 2 days after I submitted my request. Once on the plane, I quickly put it over his seat and strapped him in. It worked perfectly! If you are wanting some extra protection for your toddler or small kids, this is definitely the way to go! It looked new, and it came with a carrying case. I didn't have any problems going thru check points or being on the plane. All in all, I will definitely being using them again for all of my flying needs until he is tall enough/old enough to sit in a seat without being tossed about. Thanks again! So glad I stumbled upon this!

L. Towers

We just returned home after our first vacation in SIX years! We had a fantastic time and our 4 yr old was safe and secure on all the flights with his Rentcares child restraint! I ordered it 10 days before our trip and it arrived in plenty of time. It was easy to carry, easy to install...and most of all, my hyperactive boy was safe and comfortable the whole time. This was a great solution to our short term needs...thank you!

Amber Meiki
Oklahoma

We discovered barely 2 weeks before a planned trip to Disney that there was no way our car seat would fit for our small 3 year old. (Nor did I particularly want to crate it around an airport when we wouldn't need it the rest of the time). Purely by coincidence did I find someplace that rented the CARES Harness, saving me $$ since we don't fly often at all. The harness arrived with 4 days to spare and was super easy to install! My son loved it, other passengers loved that he wasn't all over the place or kicking their chairs!

Super easy company to deal with and a fabulous product, at a great price!

Melissa
Missouri

Wanted a little extra protection on the plane for my two little ones, ages 2 & 4, without having to carrying bulky seats with us that we wouldn't need other than the plane. I am so happy I found RentCares.com and I have already recommended your business to others. Thanks again.

Tiffany
PA

Went for a week on vacation without my husband so was just me and 2 year old and this harness was easy to use and carry instead of a 50 lb carseat. Will most definitely rent again for our next trips.

Brandi Youngblood
South Carolina

Having the CARES harness was such an amazing thing to have on my trip to Boise .. With a connection flight dragging around a car seat would have been horrendous. The flight attendants raved over it and even said how much they wished they would have had that for their kids. For my son it was great because he is BUSY and it made him feel as if he was in a car seat so he didn't attempt to wiggle around and get out of his seat. He was calm on every plane we had to take and the other passengers told me oh my gosh we didn't even know he was next to you. Thank you rentcares.com you guys really are doing an amazing thing!

--- Thank you, Meghan! His face! So cute!!!

Meghan

Rent cares was great and we got the 2 harnesses on time and as promised. However, we were flying to jamaica on Caribbean airlines and thye would
Bot allow us to use the harnesses. Thye said they were not licensed and insured to allow us to use them. So fortunately we struggled to keep the kids in their seats and feel we wasted our money on the rental. I would suggest checking with your airline before renting.

Thanks,
Heather

Rentcares was great! We had our harness more than a week before we needed it. It was really easy to use and was great piece of mind on the plane. And they give you plenty of time to send it back upon your trips return. I would definitely recommend them and use them again in the future!

Wendy

This was our second time using RentCares and we are just as happy as we were with the first time. We needed two harnesses and they came well before our trip. They are so easy to use and really give you a sense of security on a longer flight. Very lightweight and easy to carry. The service is outstanding! I would highly recommending using RentCares to anyone traveling with toddlers.

Wendy Mullan

The service this company provides is exceptional! The transaction couldn't have been any easier. I highly recommend this service to anyone traveling with toddlers. The harness was so easy to set up and take off. Thank you for making my trip all that much more enjoyable!

Adelina Alvarez
California

Renting this harness was an amazing experience for our three-year-old boy...it felt like he was in his car seat...our flight to Florida was effortless and a pleasant experience ...We would definitely use this service again it saved us money and provide piece of mind.

Thank you for such fast delivery and pleasant customer service... I will definitely recommend your harness for rent at rentcares.com

If you need a CARES harness this is the place to rent it! I just took my twin 2 year old girls to Disney and not only did the CARES work great but the woman who runs this rental business was a huge help. She answered all my emails right away and I knew exactly when they were mailed to me and when to expect them to arrive. And as soon as my trip was over, she communicated via email about how to return it. Great price, great service, online business you can trust!

Mason

The harness arrived several days before our flight, which relieved worry. It was very clean and in excellent condition. Per the suggestion of reviews I read, I cut a small strip off an extra yoga mat to serve as a non-slip seat pad for my two year old. I struggled a little securing the harness on the outgoing flight, but a flight attendant helped me. My toddler was not completely happy in the harness, but that is because he is an active two year old who wanted to explore. As our car seat was way too big for the trip, I felt much more at peace having my son safely secured in more than a lap belt. I will definitely rent the harness again for future trips.

Melissa
NYC

This was a great find! Harness arrived before our departure date as promised. It was in good condition and clean. My 3 y/o granddaughter was comfortable during the flight and the harness was simple to install. Easey peasy as they say!

It sure beats lugging a car seat through the terminal and on/off the plane. I will continue to rent this harness until the kids are old enough to use the seat belts.

Linda Massari
Illinois

1st time flying with kids and wasn't sure what to expect with my 3 1/2 year old and a standard lap belt. I'm very glad I rented the harness as he did need one as he's a slim boy. (Even my 5 year old seem a little unsecured with a lap belt.) I wasn't able to find a local friend with a Cares Harness. So I did a quick google search and found this rental site instead of buying one that I'd most likely not use again since we don't fly much. Quick turnaround with my trip less than 10 days away and easy return via mail. Great business idea!

Catherine
MA

This went smoother than I could have imagined. It was our first time flying with our kids, and so we were a bit nervous. The harness arrived well in advance of our trip, in great shape. Easy to understand instructions, really simple to use. The whole process was wonderful. I'll recommend it to all other flying parents I know!

Bill S.
MO - Missouri

This is a fantastic service. What a relief to have it arrive and then not have to worry about...do I need a car seat etc etc. No, you don't. Thank you!

Great service. We flew for the first time with our 2 year old. We don't fly often, so I was happy to learn I could rent the harness. He is a very active 2 year old, so we needed a harness to keep him in his seat and to keep him safe. He argued a bit, but once strapped in, he settle in and was happy. Again, great service, and I would recommend to anyone!

Nicholas
Arkansas

We've flown with our son twice now and have used a CARES harness before that we had borrowed from a family member. Since we couldn't borrow it a second time (since they were also traveling) and our son is near the weight limit, we decided to rent one. We received it quickly with several days to spare before our trip. It was clean, well packaged, and arrived with instructions for return. It did the job and I stopped in the post office this morning and stuck it back in the mail! Definitely saved us a lot of money with being able to rent as opposed to purchasing.

Alison
Illinois

We booked an international flight this time but could not handle the thought of bringing along our 2 bulky car seats again so we started looking into the CARES harness. We were so glad to see this page and have the option of renting instead of buying them since we will likely not travel by air again in the next few years.

The harnesses arrived well before our departure date, they were clean, like-new condition and easy to store in our carryon packback.

Once on the plane, they were really easy to install and remove and the kids surprisingly didn't mind wearing them. They did still squirm from timr to time so a non-slip pad underneath would have helped buy not something I thought of until afterwards.

Overall great experience and I'd definitely use this service again if we end up traveling.

Thank you!

McElroy Family
North Carolina

We recently completed a trip to Europe, and chose not to take a bulky car seat as our family had one waiting for us. We debated about buying a Cares harness to provide a safer experience for our 2.5 year old daughter. However, not knowing how often we will be traveling by air before she reaches the weight limit, and after reading about other traveler's struggles with the harness itself or the airline crew refusing to let them use the harness, we were having a hard time justifying the cost of it if, in the end, we might not be able to use it. We were delighted when we came across this company's website and the service they provide.

I am very pleased to share the following experience:

1) The harness arrived early and in perfect condition. The cost is very reasonable, especially for the piece of mind it provided.

2) We had absolutely no trouble with any of the airline crew on the four separate flights we had to take. They never questioned it.

3) We had no trouble installing the harness. All of the traveler's behind us were completely helpful and understanding. After lowering their trays and positioning the belt, their trays snapped right back into place as they should, and were completely useable during the flight.

4) I do recommend bringing something non-slip for the child to sit on. They will start to slip down in the seat, and you will need to help them back into position regularly. However, a strip of non-slip shelving liner should do the trick. I just forgot to bring it.

Overall, a great product and a great service. I will definitely rent again!

Tracy
California

The harness arrived 5 days before my trip. I found an installation guide from Youtube and it was very easy. I asked gate staff if I can board earlier and all 4 staffs allowed us to do that. (I flied with American Airline for all 4 flights) It was very easy to install and took it off. My 20 months old didn't want to wear the harness the whole time. However she was okay to wear it when it was taking off and landing. (and when there were turbulences). Renting this device was the great idea for me than buying since I only travel once or twice a year with my kids. Highly recommended.

KELLY LIM
Virginia

The harness arrived well before our trip, and in excellent condition. It was easy to use and our 4 year old daughter was happy and comfortable in it. So much easier than a car seat! I recommend boarding as early as you can, since you are going to have to open up the tray table belonging to the seat right behind where your child sits to install. Still, it only takes a minute to install and is completely unobtrusive once it's in. This is such a terrific service. I highly recommend RentCares!

Sean Sandefur
Massachusetts

This service is outstanding! We flew with twins and did not want to purchase 2 CARES harnesses. The harnesses arrived well before our trip. Returning the harnesses was made simple because a return envelope was included.

I highly recommend this company!

Wendy

The process was simple and quick. This service is such an affordable option and using the harnesses were just as easy. We are not frequent travelers so it didn't make sense for us to purchase. Thank you for offering your service!

Jennifer

I would recommend renting from Cherry. She had great customer service. I decided to rent them for my 2 year old and my 4 year old. I really wanted to keep my 2 year old son contained in his seat but didnt want to lug his carseat. This worked well! I will rent from here again and recommend to my friends!

Crystal
Rhode Island

We debated about how to handle air travel with our 4 and 5 year olds. My husband felt strongly about them being secured in more than just the airplane belt. I was worried about taking their bulky car seats and not giving them the chance to curl up in their seats or lay down. We decided it was crazy to buy CARES harnesses for them because we don't travel enough to make it worth the cost. I happened across this site and was thrilled with our experience. The harnesses we received were like new.the kids didn't object to them on the plane and were easily installed (I would recommend to people though to open up the tray table for the person behind you and then, install the strap. You can still close the tray table. The CARES harness wraps right over the tray table so the person behind the kid would not be able to get it open otherwise.) The return process was super simple and I really recommend this company and this product to parents who want to simplify air travel and reduce unnecessary costs.

Jill

Excellent customer service and very affordable. Tge harnesses were so helpful during our trip. Our kids were so comfortable and loved them. Will definitely use this service in the future and would recommend to anyone traveling with children. Thank you RentCares!

Drake & Valerie Wuertz
Florida

Excellent customer service. I was traveling last minute and they accommodated me without issue, I had the harness in my hands in 2 days.
Worked great for my 3 year old son, kept him in his seat comfortably and didn't have to worry about a bulky car seat. The people behind us were interested in it too and it was not all disruptive to them even with tv monitors.
Easy return policy too, overall will definitely use again if needed.

Isabell
Massachusetts

Used RentCARES.com for a CARES harness for our almost 3 year old for travel to Sweden and Denmark. Our train travel in between (leaving from a different airport then we arrived) and lack of need for car transport while there made carseat hauling impractical. We've used a CARES harness previously with our older daughter and it was great to be able to rent one for this trip. Ordered early, it showed up with days to spare, and the process was as easy as could be. Flight attendants and other passengers were impressed, and our little one was very happy to have a harness on like in her carseat. She even slept a bit 😉 Pays to be aware that most kids tend to slide out the bottom, so a thin square of shelf liner or such to put under them will keep you from having to reposition constantly.

Jessica Schaefer

Excellent! The harness worked for my two year old! Even got compliments from passengers on the harness. The customer service was great. Everything arrived well before our trip and it's good that you get email reminders on receiving it and when to send it back. Thanks so much!

Michelle
Illinois

Fantastic service. Worked out perfectly for my 20-month grandson who was flying for the first time and was so much easier than carrying a bulky car seat. Cost was reasonable and delivery was very efficient. I highly recommend this service and would definitely use it again.

Debbie

FANTASTIC!! Great customer service, timely delivery (with only a couple days before take off) and generous return policy. This made our trip with our 2 year old so much easier in the plane, she sat well and made her feel like she was a big girl riding in the car like everyone else.

I won't travel without this!!

THANKS!

Charles B
Florida

Fantastic. I received the harness in plenty of time for our trip. It was clean and came with clear instructions about how to return. Plus the time to return was very considerate. I will definitely rent again for next flight.

Barry Family

This was the best solution for our SUPER wiggly 21 month old. The harness was light weight, easy to install, and held her in place. She fell asleep right away because she was held still! I know my neighbors appreciated that!
Will continue to rent for all our flights until my toddler can sit still on her own.........

Katie
Phoenix

We rented two CARES harnesses for our twins to use on a transatlantic flight. The harnesses arrived well before our departure date, and they were in excellent condition, very clean. The instructions for returning them were very clear, and the time allowed for return was also very helpful. The CARES harnesses were very easy to install on the plane, and they fit the twins well. I would definitely use this company again.

Algarra Family

We recently used rentcares.com for a trip back to Michigan. We got our son who is 23 months old his own seat so the flight would be more comfortable for all of us. While looking around online to find out FAA requirements for the use of car seats on planes, I ran across the CARES harness system. While doing research on CARES harness system I ran across rentcares.com. Looking at the price to buy the harness system versus renting it from rentcares.com, we decided to rent since we don’t fly to often. We are so glad we used the CARES harness system for the flights, it was easier to install and carry then a car seat. We were especially happy with the service we received from rentcares.com. We received the system in the mail 2 days before our flight. The harness system was in the CARES bag and clean making it easy to store and carry. We had no problems using this on our flights. It’s easy to install and un-install. We will certainly use rentcares.com again in the future.

Dan
Washington

I'm so glad I found the CARES harness and even happier that I found RentCARES. We fly infrequently and have spare car seats on the other side, so lugging those just doesn't make sense. I also couldn't justify spending the money to buy our own harnesses when we don't fly very often. There's a good chance that the next time we flew anywhere, our oldest wouldn't even need it. Renting it is the perfect solution!

The harnesses arrived with plenty of time before our trip and looked almost new. The girls were very comfortable in them on the plane and the harnesses were easy to install. I will definitely be back the next time we fly.

Liz S
Washington

I took a huge leap flying 6 months pregnant and with my one year old without other adult help. I did a lot of research on the most efficient way to fly and I'm so glad we found RentCares! This harness was super easy to use and I got compliments from all of my neighbors on the plane and the flight attendants. It was easy to squeeze into my backpack pocket and didn't add the extra bulky weight of lugging a car seat around. We don't fly often, but when we do, we will RentCares!

Wendy S
South Carolina

I am so glad we rented the CARES harness for our recent trip. It was so much easier than installing the car seat on the airplane, and our daughter did great with it. Would definitely rent again! The harness came with plenty of time before our flight, and the videos of how to install make it super easy.

This is the third time I've rented from rentcares.com. I'm so glad I found their website last year. I have the luxury of bringing my toddler to most of my short business trips (in and out) to NY that is why its imperative that I get there fast and a car seat will just slow me down! I've never had a bad experience renting from Cherry, she's answered all my questions the first time I rented. The seatbelt always arrived a few days before my flight, it is VERY clean, and the bag it came with smelled like it just came out of the laundry. She also gives this hand wipes for free. Instruction manual is not included but you just have to ask for it free of charge. Thank you Cherry!

I can't say enough good things about the CARES Harness. We were traveling with my 21 month old on four flights for a total of about 8 hours and two rather short layovers. I knew that it would be difficult to carry a car seat, baby, stroller, and luggage through the airport. I searched for alternatives to the car seat and I found the CARES system. This was so much simpler! It comes in its own bag which we just put into our carry on bag. It was extremely easy to use and looked brand new. My son buckled into it with no problems. It kept him still and he was happy for most of the trip. It arrived a few days before our trip just as promised and was very simple to return. I would definitely recommend!

We flew long haul (11 hours flight) with our 15 month old. He is full of energy and would never have sat still without this fantastic cares system. It fitted easily to the seat and was easy to travel with as it came in it's own handy bag.

Previously we have carried a car seat around the airport which has such hard work we vowed never to do it again. I'm so glad we were able to rent this system.

It arrived within plenty of time for our trip. It was in fantastic condition (it looked brand new) and returning was simple.

Throughly recommend. Will use again.

I was very pleased that I had rented the Cares system, as I was stressed about having to fly with a 23 month old toddler. He was in his terrible 2 stage and has a lot of energy. The system helped him stay put for a flight that was just a little over 2 hours. Even when taking the flight back home he tried to buckled the strapped on him so this let me know that he (my toddler) knew that he needed to remain seated. Thank you for having the opportunity to rent Care harness system.

This harness was absolutely amazing. I searched various websites for alternatives to baby car seats and lucked up on this site. I used the device for my nearly 2 year old on her first airplane trip. The ease of use and transport was really great for the hectic pace at the airport and onboard. My daughter was comfortable and enjoyed her travels.

This service is highly recommended as the belt arrived in plenty of time and is very compact. I would definitely utilize this company again for future travel.

This harness is great! Especially if you have to switch planes, it is so nice to not have to lug a big car seat around while trying to run to catch a connecting flight. The harness came in plenty of time, was super easy to use, and stored really small to fit in my carry on. I used this for my 18 month old and my 3 year old. The harness was clean and had no stains or smells. Thank you!

I was considering a Cares harness for our son before a short trip to Vancouver BC and then I thought "I wonder if I could rent one?" ... a quick Google search and I found rentcares.com. Service and communication very good and prompt. Item arrived a few days before we left and was given a reasonable time to keep it after getting home from the trip. Returning the unit is at your own expense (completely reasonable). The harness was clean and fully working. We may buy our own now but if we needed to rent again, I'd certainly get it here!!! Thank you.

I was very pleased with this whole process and the product. The Cares harness arrived with several days to spare. We practiced with it at home but it was very, very simple to set up. We were able to set it up on the plane with no problems, except maybe a little bit of awkwardness telling the person behind us that we had to put the strap behind her lap tray. Once she realized the strap did not restrict her or her lap tray at all she was totally fine with it. The harness worked great for my 2.5 year old squirmy, super energetic and hard-headed daughter! She didn't complain once and comfortably watched videos, played games and read books the whole time. I think it felt secure and similar to her car seat which was comfortable and normal for her. She is tiny and needed a boost to reposition herself after falling down too low about 2 times both flights but it wasn't a problem at all. I was very happy we had the harness on the way home, as we had a lot of turbulence. Overall, I would definitely recommend the cares harness and rentcares.com to my friends and loved ones!

I'm so glad I rented this instead of buying it for our trip. The harness worked like a dream for our almost 4 year old. He watched his DVDs, ate, and even took a nap with it on. It fit him perfectly. I received the harness in plenty of enough time for our trip too. I will definitely rent it again and reccomend it to anyone who is looking to not bring heir car seat for their next flight. Thanks Cherry!

We have twin 2 year old's and a 4 year old and didn't want to take our car seats on the plane. I was looking to purchase these myself but we don't fly very often so when I saw the website to rent I was thrilled. We only needed two and they worked great. We received them in plenty of time before our trip, they were like brand new, already assembled and very easy to use. I would definitely recommend using RentCARES again and will let all of my friends who travel with their kids know as well. I like that they also send a reminder email after your trip to remember to send them back. Overall a great experience and thanks for providing such a great service to all traveling parents!

I don't know where I would be without our CARES Harness for our flight. My 2 year old son is so very active and would not sit still on a flight without it. But it worked great and he was so well behaved. It was great not having to bring our huge car seat on the plane. RENT CARESS was wonderful to work with. I received our harness a couple of days before we were scheduled to fly and at a great price too. Much better then purchasing one since my family doesn't fly often en0ough. I will definitely recommend this site to everyone

I recieved the CARES way before my trip. It didn't even look used it has been kept so clean!. My daughter loved it and it helped so much and allowed us to not bring a car seat on our trip. I will definitely use this service again! Thank you so much. Great service from a great company.

My grandson was just fine with the CARES. He's just a little peanut, 24 pounds and 33 inches tall at the age of 2. It was perfect. The ordering process was so easy. It arrived in plenty of time to actually practice with him, so he was used to it. The cost is so reasonable. I sure didn't want to buy one for $75. I would rent one again with no hesitation. Fabulous service, Cherry!!!

Jeri Hunt

Everything went smoothly with the rental of the belt. However, my 14 month old did not want to be restrained and started crying hysterically. So, we chose not to use it. I think she would be fine with it as she gets older, and I would recommend other people renting one vs buying one if you don't travel that often.

Julie

From beginning to end, this has been a wonderful process! We flew 6 hours with our 2 year old with a harness from rentcares.com. The ease of ordering, Cherry's professional assistance, the simplicity of using the harness, everything was perfect. We were able to gate check our car seat, instead of lugging it on and installing it on a plane seat. But yet, we still had the peace of mind with the 5 point harness when we hit bumpy turbulence, which we did! I highly recommend this wensite to any parents flying with their little one. And you can't beat the price!

Autumn

Thank you for your fast shipping and continuous professionalism throughout this process. I actually didn't even end up using the harness on my toddler becuz she wasn't having it but thank god the airline didn't seem to care. I did although have a peace of mind in knowing that it was on hand just in case so it was still worth it. Happy New Years.

We recommend RentCARES when flying with young kids. Harness arrives in plenty of time and is easy to use. Cherry is very helpful and professional. CARES offers peace of mind when the air gets a little choppy. We like knowing our toddler is secure with the shoulder straps. CARES allows children plenty of freedom to move, play, read or eat on the plane.

Another happy customer...Fast processing, easy communication with Cheryl, and most importantly the cares system arrived on time and was easy to use. I was happy/relieved to not have to lug the car seat through the terminal and/or worry about my two year old son kicking the seat in front of him. He was happy, safe and comfortable and there was a lot more room for everyone. Room to move, room to play, room to relax. Easy to set up and take down, I would easily recommend this system and this company to anyone. -Scott

I would absolutely recommend renting from Cherry. It was the cheapest option and she is very reliable and responsive. She made things exceptionally easy and convenient for us, and I will absolutely be renting from her again.

I would highly recommend using Cherry! I searched everywhere online and just couldn't see spending from 80 to 100 dollars to purchase a harness for one use! This is the way to go! the harness is delivered right to your door, you use it and then return it by mail. Simple and so much cheaper to do! Thanks Cherry, you all were the best!

I found rentcares.com via google. reservation was easy and she responded right away with my questions. We got our cares early and it was clean and spotless. I highly recommend!

Cherry went above and beyond to get me a CARES rental at the last minute before our trip. She answered questions and made sure my 4 year old was safe on our flight, and in the most convenient and manageable way for our family! We travel again in April to Disney and we will be back, hands down!

Stacey

When planning to travel recently with our three year old, we were dreading taking the carseat onboard, and having to apologize 150 times for him kicking the seat in front of him, and oh by the way please don't recline your seat onto my child's legs, not to mention lugging around a carseaat that weighs almost as much as our son. I was surprised to find out about the CARES system, and even more surprised to find Cherry's business.
After reading a few testimonials, (and still somewhat skeptical) I decided to take a chance.
It was one of the best experiences we've had! Not only was the product CLEAN ( passed the sniff test with flying collars) and nice, it arrived in plenty of time, and Cherry is just great, a real professional and nice. She sent emails as necessary to make sure we got what we needed when we needed it, and even sent a reminder when it was time to return the device. The device is waaaaaay better than the carseat option, easy to use and it worked as advertised. We even had the people sitting behind us offering to help install and adjust it as needed.
I highly recommend renting from Cherry, you won't be disappointed.

I was looking for a way to keep my 20-month-old son safe and secure in an airplane seat without having to lug his massive carseat on our trip. I found Rent CARES and couldn't be happier with the service or the product. It arrived in plenty of time and looked brand new. The device was easy to install and helped us keep him seated for most of the flight. I don't anticipate flying regularly enough to purchase our own CARES so renting is the perfect solution for us. On our next trip we will certainly be utilizing Rent CARES once again.

Erica
Florida

I heard about CARES from a friend who had rented one for air travel with her son. I decided to rent one for our little guy. He's 3 but only weighs 29 lbs. It was so easy to reserve and Cherry's customer service was great! It doesn't take up much room in your bag. It was very easy to use. My son did not complain about it at all (that's a big deal!) and I had several people ask me about it and where I got it. I liked the idea of not having to lug around a bulky seat just for the airline.
I hope to use rentCARES again in the future-I just have to finish paying for this Disney trip first!

Deirdre

Having one CARES harness, we didn't want to buy a second one for my son who is nearing the height limit for this but flying without it wasn't an option. We also didn't want to lug a large car seat (or two) around the airports. Renting a CARES harnesswas the way to go! It was both economical and easy. Reasonable fee, reliably shipped just before our trip, and plenty of time to return the item. This really couldn't have been a better experience. Traveling with toddlers can be stressful enough and RentCARES gave us one less thing to worry about. Thank you!

Just want to say that renting these was a fantastic idea! I picked up mine near Cherry's place and gotta say she was nice and pretty! The seat belts looked brand new and smelled great. It comes with a free hand sanitizing cloth (not those teeny tiny wipes) too. She gave us 7 days to send the items back to her which I think is more than enough. My husband and I agreed we would rent from her again next year. Thanks Cherry!

Such a great idea to rent these out. We utilized 2 CARES harnesses on a trip from Florida to Hawaii. They were clean and in perfect condition and they worked great for the kids 2 & 4. Will definitely use this company again!

I am so glad I was able to rent the harness from RentCares. The harness is such a great idea, and it was so much easier than a car seat. I highly recommend renting the harness and checking it out before you purchase it.

Hi cherry! Thank you so much for quick service and clean harness. I didn't want to buy a new harness, so glad to find your website. I would definately come back when next time i need harness.

A fantastic idea for safe flying. Ordering was easy and everything arrived well ahead of our flight. I'd recommend rentcares.com to everybody.

Flew with my 2 1/2 year old for the first time. Didn't know what to expect so I decided to rent the harness. Cherry is very professional. We received the harness a few days before our flight. I was happy to have it as we did have some turbulence on the way home and if we had not had it my son would have been all over his seat. This kept him secure in his seat and me stress free!

We traveled with our 2 yr old twins from NYC to Colorado. I didn’t want to purchase the CARES harnesses b/c I wasn’t sure if we wld use them more than once until they grow into the regular seat belt. These were excellent. The kids stayed seated for a majority of the time, until they got tired and wanted to snuggle and RentCares.com was very professional. She sent us the harnesses a few days early and gave you a reasonable time to return them. I would definitely use them again and plan to inform our NYC Twin Blog about your company.

Thanks!

Cherry is awesome! I left my husband in charge of securing the harness. He did, but had it sent to our old address. Cherry overnighted another one to us for just a shipping charge ( she must understand dumb hubby's). I was so relieved knowing our granddaughter was safe and secure on the plane!! Thank you

Debbie Krcelic

I flew by myself with an infant and a 2 1/2 year old. I was so scared because the last time I flew with the 2 year old was not a good experience because she could get up. I found this and was in love. It made for a wonderful trip because she was buckled in. I also loved that she was safe. Thank you!

Hi Cherry! Fast service, clean and new looking cares are much appreciated. The sanitizing wipe is a nice touch! Good luck to you!

I will highly recommend renting from you. We are a military family and it was our time to move Florida to California. My daughter is 5 years old (38 lbs.) and autistic. Our last flight was a nightmare (she was 2)because she was used to wearing a harness from her car seat. It gave her security. I didn't know about the harness until I did some research a few months ago . With the harness on, she was amazing! She was a happy camper for the duration of the flight! Thanks again!

Cherry, we're so glad we found your website. Thank you for always responding so quickly and for sending the items sooner than we anticipated. My grandson was safe.
