As the summer holidays roll around, you may be planning to take your kids on a holiday abroad or a staycation. Either way, this can involve a fair bit of travelling, so it’s important to ensure your kids are safe and happy along the way. Thankfully, a huggybelt can help with the former.
Whether you’re driving to a holiday home or caravan, or simply making your way to the airport, the huggybelt is an ideal way to ensure your child is fully protected on the journey. Working in tandem with your child’s car seat or booster, the huggybelt ensures the seat belt sits in the correct position on your child’s body. This means it’s highly unlikely to fall off, and can offer maximum protection with less chance of sustaining injury should you become involved in a crash.
Home or away
The great news is that a huggybelt is flexible and portable, so you can take it with you wherever your child goes. If you plan to rent a car while abroad, simply unclip the huggybelt from the Isofix point, fold it up and pop it in your hand luggage. Whilst the rules of the road may vary slightly in other countries, you can still ensure your child is protected in case of a crash by taking your huggybelt with you.
It’s worth bearing in mind the belt’s portability when you are at home too. If your child is going on a trip with a friend’s family, you can easily remove your huggybelt to transfer to another car, in the event that the other car owner does not have a huggybelt.
Keep the kids amused
When you’re sure your child is comfortable and safe in the car, the hardest part begins – keeping them amused! Fortunately, there are plenty of games you can play that everyone in the car can enjoy. For instance, if you’re on a car journey abroad, you could play spot the difference between there and home. If you’re in a rural area, you could each pick a farm animal and see how many you can find before you stop. Why not check out our car games for Easter travellers post for more inspiration?
