If you have young children, you will probably have the requisite car seat so they can travel safely on car journeys. But did you know that if you have a bump in your car, you should really replace all child car seats in case they’ve been damaged or weakened as a result of the impact?

If you’re involved in an accident, having car seat cover can mean that you are partially or fully reimbursed for the money you spend on replacing any child car seats fixed to your car with new ones, whether the original seats had been damaged or not.
Why do I need child car seat insurance?
If you have children, having the right car seat for each of them could set you back a fair amount. But if you have to replace each one of them after an accident, the bill can soon stack up. Having child car seat insurance could save you money and still keep your children safe while travelling by helping towards the cost of replacement car seats.
Does my car insurance cover children’s car seats?
Don’t assume that your comprehensive car insurance policy will include cover for your children’s car seats. An insurer may well cover the replacement of car seats but it’s always worth checking in case this cover isn’t included. With some insurers, you may have the option of enhancing your standard car insurance policy by adding child car seat cover to your policy.
What is covered?
What is actually included with child car seat insurance will very much depend on the insurer offering the cover.
Some insurers may only cover one child car seat while other insurers may cover more than one. There may be other insurers that extend child car seat cover to other items relating to children such as pushchairs or other baby accessories.
