Please tell me how to calculate the number of passengers in a rental car, if children get in.

The number of passengers under 12 years old is calculated as follows.
One child ⇒ One adult
Two children ⇒ Two adults
Three children ⇒ Two adults
Four children ⇒ Three adults
Five children ⇒ Four adults

Examples) In the case of a small car with a 5-seater.
3 adults + 3 children under 12 years old can get in the car.
2 adults + 4 children under 12 years old can get in the car.
4 adults + 2 children under 12 years old cannot get in the car.

*To customers using NIPPON Rent a Car
NIPPON Rent a Car does not use the above calculation.
Regardless of children, only five passengers can get in a five-seater car. Please make a reservation under this regulation.

If a child does not wear a child seat, the risk of death or serious damage to the body in the event of an accident or sudden braking is extremely high. Even if a child seat is exempted by law, we will refuse the exceeding number of passengers for the safety of children.

If you make a reservation for a rental car, please reserve and use a rental car with sufficient capacity, and all children use child seats appropriately for their age.

*Children under 6 years old are required to wear a child seat.
*Please make sure to check the installation of a child seat by yourself.
