Child Seat policy for Australia - The Facts

RESTRAINTS

The type of restraint required for your child depends on their age as follows:

  • Children aged under six months (up to 9kg) must wear an approved, properly fastened and adjusted, rear facing child restraint. Children in this category cannot be seated in the front of our vehicles.
  • Children aged between six months and under four years (8 – 18kg) must wear an approved, properly fastened and adjusted, rear facing child restraint OR a forward facing child restraint with an in-built harness. Children in this category cannot be seated in the front of our vehicles.
  • Children aged between four years and under seven (14 – 26 kg) must wear an approved, properly fastened and adjusted, forward facing child restraint with an in-built harness OR an approved booster seat which is properly positioned and fastened. Whilst it is legal (under certain circumstances) for a child in this category to sit in the front seat, Britz does not recommend any child under 26kgs or under seven years travels in the front seat.
  • All child restraints must comply with current Australian Standards and it is the responsibility of customers to fit them in the vehicle. We strongly recommend any child restraints are pre booked.

WHERE YOUR CHILD CAN SIT

  • Front seats in Britz vehicles are not fitted with anchor points and cannot accommodate children under four years in any case.
  • If all appropriate rear seats are being used by children under seven years, children aged between four and six years (inclusive) may travel in the front seat, provided they use an approved booster seat.

PLEASE NOTE
Britz vehicles are not fitted with child safety barriers for top bunk / overhead beds. Britz recommends children sleep in the lower dinette-converted beds.
