Tampa Airport launches baby equipment rental service


In partnership with local baby equipment rental company Our Little Suitcase, Tampa Airport (TPA) in Florida has launched a rental service designed for parents traveling with children.

The service rents baby equipment, including car seats and strollers, to passengers arriving at TPA, to reduce the need for families to bring all their baby equipment on the plane. Rental prices range from US$65 to US$200 depending on equipment and length of rental. The company will also provide beach chairs, toys and umbrellas to vacationing families at select sections of Pinellas County beaches. All items are thoroughly cleaned between rentals. Hard surfaces are wiped down with hydrogen peroxide and all removable covers are washed in hypoallergenic detergent made specifically for babies.

The company is located in the Main Terminal on Level 1 Red Baggage Claim behind the Southwest Airlines Baggage Desk near the SkyConnect elevator. Our Little Suitcase began offering baby equipment rentals in the airport baggage claim area in July 2022. Owners Keith and Becky Buckingham of Plant City, Florida thought the idea would help reduce stress for parents traveling with their children.

Becky Buckingham said: “We want to make sure we provide a clean and safe product for our little ones. Our saying is, “We don’t want you to share your vacation with the latest vacationer.”

Joel Feldman, Senior Manager of Airport Concessions at Tampa International Airport, said, “The Concessions and Commercial Parking Department welcomes this unique service at the airport. We are very happy to help make this new service available to our customers.
