Second-hand market for child car seats and booster seats
Do you need an almost new baby car seat or a booster seat for your child in your car? The Automobile Club de Luxembourg regularly organises a sale of second-hand child car seats and specially adapted restraint systems.
Held at the Belle Etoile or on the premises of the Automobile Club de Luxembourg depending on the year, this second-hand market is an opportunity to buy safe equipment at reduced prices. The ACL takes great care to ensure that the baby seats and booster seats on offer are clean, in good condition and, above all, meet the safety standards in force.
Several hundred seats of different categories are offered at net prices. The Automobile Club acts as an intermediary for the sale free of charge and does not take any commission on sales. In addition, only cash payments are accepted.
In addition, parents can obtain further information on the various road safety systems and standards from ACL staff.
What are the rules for child car safety in Luxembourg?
In Luxembourg and Germany, all children under 1.50 m must travel in a special child seat, adapted to their size. Belgium makes child seats compulsory up to 1.35 metres, while France requires them up to the age of 10.
- baby seats are suitable for infants up to 83 cm
- beyond that, small children up to 1.05 m must be placed in “toddler” seats
- Children up to 1.50 m should be placed in a seat adapted to their safety. Booster seats can be used for short journeys and as a back-up. However, it should be noted that seats with backrests are more comfortable for longer journeys and, above all, provide greater safety for your child in the event of an accident.
ACL regularly tests child car seats, as well as crates for transporting your dogs in your car. You can find the results of these tests on the ACL website.
