In 2019 it was predicted that £474 million would be spent on Halloween retail items, including Halloween car accessories. As specialist providers of private car insurance, we want you to get into the spirit of the season. Enjoy these fang-tastic Halloween car accessories that you can add to your vehicle.
Essential Halloween car accessories
If you want to create a creepy carriage this year these Halloween car accessories are just the trick:
Halloween car air freshener
A simple way to start would be Halloween car air fresheners. This is a great way to add a little festive spirit to your vehicle this season. They are available in a variety of scents from bubble gum to pumpkin. Designs include pumpkin, vampire bat, and ghost. Additionally, these air fresheners are suitable for use in your car, home, office, or dungeon.
Halloween car seat covers
This Halloween accessory is simple to clean if the children make a sticky mess with face paint and sweets. Halloween seat covers are the ideal way to protect your upholstery and add frightening flavour to your vehicle. They are available in one size fits all and in some cases can be personalised. Moreover, the covers are made of thick, water-resistant neoprene. Please note, they must not be used if your car seat features integral airbags as this can affect deployment. They are available in a huge variety of styles including jack o’ lanterns, skeletons, coffins, and cauldrons to name but a few.
Halloween car decorations
From terrifying transformations to subtle additions, decorating your car for Halloween has never been easier. Halloween and fancy-dress stores typically sell decorations specifically for your car but check online too. Items you could expect to find include fangs, fairy wings, tombstones, and shark fins. These will all give your car additional ghostly glamour. Choose your favourite Halloween theme and let your imagination run wild. Potential ideas for Halloween car decorations include:
- Spider web
- Pirate ship
- Man-eating car
- Ghostly Graveyard
All these options and more could be used, so get creative!
Halloween car decals, stickers, and window clings
These die-cut decals and clings are devilish decorations for your car windows, bumpers, and bonnet. The creepy clings and stickers can be the ideal way to give your family and friends a fun scare and are easy to apply and remove. Moreover, stickers come on transparent transfer paper, whereas window clings use the power of static electricity to remain in place! Furthermore, they are durable, anti-scratch, waterproof and oilproof. They come in a wide variety of designs, from ghostly hooded passengers to bloody handprints and can be applied quickly for your convenience.
Halloween car safety
Firstly, whether you have turned your car into a giant jack o’ lantern, a toilet paper mummy, or a ghostly pirate ship the principles of driver safety remain the same. Make sure you decorate your vehicle in a way that does not impair vision or visibility for you and other drivers. Secondly, all decorations should be securely attached to your vehicle to avoid accidental loss or theft. Finally, your decorations should not block access to your vehicle’s doors, windows, or obscure any internal or external mirrors.
Trick or treating safety tips for parents
Now that your ride is suitably scary, there are some important safety tips to bear in mind if you are looking to go trick or treating. Halloween is fun for all the family, and you can make sure you enjoy the safest, spookiest Halloween yet by considering the below:
- Try to avoid masks as they restrict vision and can cause potential blind spots when crossing roads, etc.
- Wear costumes that are brightly coloured, especially for younger children. Attach reflective tape where possible to the front and back of outfits to aid visibility and allow drivers to see your child better.
- Only trick or treat at houses that have the lights on, and never enter someone’s home or car to receive Halloween goodies.
- Always accompany your child when trick or treating. This improves safety and neighbourhood relations too. If you have older children whom you feel can go out unaccompanied, plan the route, agree on a curfew, and insist that they take a mobile phone and are familiar with how to reach home or the police in case of an emergency.
