How we test Besafe child car seats
Our reviews of car seats are based on our thorough test program. Our tests are more rigorous than the requirements for the standard, and better reflect what happens in real-life crashes compared with the legal minimum test. Unlike the standard, we also test ease of use – checking that the seat is easy to install and adjust in different cars in any of the different modes (such as seatbelt or Isofix).
These components all feed in to the final review score. To be a Best Buy, a Group 0 or 0+ child car seat must score 77% or more. A group 1, 2, 3 child car seat, or any of the combinations of these groups, need to score 74% or higher to be a Best Buy.
Find out whether any Besafe models scored highly enough in our reviews to become a Best Buy child car seat.

Where to buy Besafe child car seats
You can buy Besafe child car seats from retailers such as Mothercare, John Lewis, Winstanleys Pram World, Independents and other online retailers.
When choosing a child car seat, we strongly recommend browsing and researching online - but when you come to buying, it’s best to have it fitted in store and buy it there. This is because not all car seats fit in all cars, and a fitting demonstration will help you once you’ve got the seat home.
In a crash, an incorrectly fitted car seat can reduce the crash protection the seat offers.
