Many of you travellers will know that holidaying pre- and post-kids is very, very different. Pre-kids you could hop on a low cost flight on a Friday afternoon with just a bag and a few choice items, and be enjoying a few cocktails by sunset a few hours later. Heading home was just as easy – perhaps some of you even went straight to the office from the airport!
Post kids there’s THE STUFF. ALL OF IT! SO MUCH STUFF! Planning a holiday requires military precision whilst you decide what essential items you need to take for your babies or toddlers (answer: everything!), how you’re going to get it abroad, and how you’re going to get it to your accommodation. (If it’s not been lost in transit, that is.) Or will your accommodation provide it? Maybe they will, but it’s not exactly what you were after?
Now there’s a new service that’s sure to help many of you – baby equipment rental in Istria by Junior Travel. Junior Travel is a company that lets you hire a wide variety of items for your little ones – babies and toddlers. There’s everything you could possibly need – from car seats and booster seats to strollers and prams; baby carriers, bouncers, cribs and cots; high chairs to breast pumps and sterilisers; baby monitors and even toys! There’s even items for the beach, such as pop up beach tents, towels, beach toys and cool boxes.
Many of the above items are provided as well recognised brands, including Cybex, Maclaren, Egobaby, Baby Jogger, Avent, Babybjorn and more. You may even have the same items at home, so be used to them and know how to use them!

Junior Travel baby equipment rental – how it works
You can book the items you need online (and the specific dates you need them) on the Junior Travel website. The equipment you rent will be delivered direct to your accommodation. You can also choose to have the items delivered to an airport (if you need a car seat, for example). Delivery is undertaken 7 days a week, from 9am to 9pm.
Junior Travel cover the whole Istrian peninsula, which covers many of the most popular towns and resorts in Croatia. This includes Rovinj, Umag, Porec, Vrsar, Novigrad, Medulin, and Rabac. Istria is also home to a great number of villas that are highly suitable for families.
All equipment is washed, disinfected and steam cleaned with non-toxic products after each rental.
About Junior Travel
Junior Travel was started by mum of 3, Ivana Labinjan. A trip to Finland with her sons saw her take a multitude of kids essentials for the three different ages; not only did she lose and find part of her stroller at the airport (another common problem – what is it about prams and flying?!), she also found herself with more luggage on the way back as some additional toys crept in!
Not being able to find any kind of baby equipment rental in Finland, she was inspired to create that very service for families visiting beautiful Istria.
So if you’re travelling to Istria with some little tots this summer, consider easing the stress of travelling with kids and hiring some of the essentials!
