should I bring a carseat?

We emailed the family we are staying with in Barcelona to say that we could bring our carseat, but if they had one we could use, then we wouldn't drag it with us on the plane. The following is what she wrote:

Hola!!
si que tenemos una silla para el coche, o sea que no hace falta que la lleveis.

I'm pretty sure she said they have a carseat so we don't need to bring one, but the truth is, I'm a little shaky on the phrase hacer falta.

Thanks guys!

Thanks guys! That's what I thought and for sure it was the phrase hacer falta that threw me. Now realizing that hacer falta= necesitar that makes perfect sense!
And whats more,we don't need to drag an enormous carseat through the airport!

like you, i get confused, but surely they are saying that they do have one and that there is no need for you to bring one.

Yes, she said that she has one, and that you don't need to bring it.
