Family Car Accessories Checklist

Safety Accessories For Family Cars
  • If the family car is a station wagon, then a luggage net is essential. The safety net prevents luggage and other items from flying forward unimpeded and causing injury in the event of an accident or emergency braking.
  • Seat belt pads for seat belts increase comfort and equal safety in family cars. The padding prevents the narrow belt edges from cutting into the neck or upper body in the event of an accident. The thickness of the padding is important.
Comfort Accessories For The Family Car
  • A family car should be equipped with sun blinds on the rear windows. If these are not fitted as standard, you can easily retrofit sun blinds that protect your children from bright sunlight and prevent the interior from heating up too much.
  • If the backrests of the front seats are not equipped with folding tables like in an airplane, you can retrofit them. Folding tables provide space for books and games during longer journeys. It is important that the table surface is as large as possible.
  • Backrest organizers provide space for all kinds of utensils and toys to keep children occupied during long trips. The organizers also serve as protection for the backrest. They are simply hooked onto the headrests and additionally secured with straps.
Family Car Accessories For Luggage And Bicycles
  • A roof box significantly increases the storage space. There’s room for beach toys, skis, and luggage in a roof box, so the trunk doesn’t have to be packed full and the view to the rear remains clear.
  • A bike rack is also a useful accessory for a family car. The bicycles of the whole family can be transported safely. When it comes to bike racks, you have a choice between rear racks and roof racks. Rear racks are easier to load because the bikes do not have to be lifted very high.
  • Trunk bags are also useful. In these bags, you can store small utensils, toys, drinks, and food comfortably and safely. Make sure that the trunk bag is made of sturdy material, such as nylon.
