Stuttgart. The sun is shining, parents have but only a few days free and the summer break has just begun. Perfect time for a drive on a short vacation. Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH offers a number high quality supplies and accessories to make the short vacation even more enjoyable.
Before the vacation begins, things must be packed. The noble travel bag from Mercedes-Benz, the Weekender Classic, is an excellent product to start this task for the journey. The Weekender comes in classic brown and is enhanced by an elegant material mix of cowhide and cotton/viscose. The original seat covers of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class from the 1980s inspire the interior design of the Weekender. In addition to a large main compartment, the bag (approx. 50 x 28 x 28 cm) is equipped with an additional zipper compartment, which can accommodate smaller travel items. Two carrying handles as well as a detachable shoulder strap ensure comfortable wearing comfort.
For those who prefer to pack a suitcase, the carry-on luggage sized Upright 55 X’Blade accompanies those wishes. The black design and a 3-D Mercedes-Benz star make this case, manufactured by Samsonite for Mercedes-Benz, a perfect short trip travel partner. The case has a large main compartment with cross-belt straps, a separate compartment with crossbars in the lid, a small wet compartment and two outer compartments with zipper. The spacious and functional interior has a volume of 44 litres. In addition, the suitcase is equipped with clothes bag, shoe and laundry bag. The Upright 55 X’Blade is 2.5 kg light, approx. 40 x 55 x 20 cm in size and has two stable wheels.

No more boring road trips
“Are we there yet?”- Typical question during a road trip no matter how long or short. With various accessories from the Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH, the trip for those in the rear becomes more of an experience. These products include the Style & Travel Equipment holder for popular tablet models from Apple and Samsung. The holder can be positioned horizontally or vertically, since it is 360° rotatable. It can also be tipped vertically for optimum positioning for users of different body sizes. The holder is simply inserted into the universal Base Attachment of the Style & Travel Equipment to the headrest brackets of the car seat. The tablet carrier can only be used in conjunction with a Mercedes-Benz protective cover that is available separately for the most popular tablets.
The travel experiences can be captured with an ActionCam. A corresponding holder can also be attached to the base attachment on the headrest brackets. The holder is compatible with common action cameras, such as GoPro or Rollei. While mounted on the holder, the ActionCam can be tilted and turned around 360°. The relevant valid data protection regulations must be observed when filming. For safety reasons, it is recommended not to occupy the back seat where the ActionCam holder is attached while the car is in motion.
The same restriction also applies to the other accessory elements of the Style & Travel Equipment, which can also be connected to the base attachment, such as Clothes Hanger, Bag Hanger and the Folding Table.
Children aged between the age of 3 and 12 years (age group II and III, 15 to 36 kg) are particularly safe in the KIDFIX Child Seat. The high-quality child seat can be attached either via ISOFIX / i-size or with the three-point belt. Higher side pads provide improved protection for the child during a side impact. The elegant cover in the exclusive Mercedes-Benz design is detachable and washable. The backrest of the seat is adjustable to the inclination of the car seat backrest and has an integrated spacer. The headrest can be adjusted in 11 positions. Separately available replacement covers allow individual customization of the design.
A true multi-talent for the little ones is the cuddly Child’s Blanket/Pillow Carl with sewn bear head. If the blanket is not in use, it can be tucked in the cute bear head which acts then as a pillow.
The Mercedes-Benz Shower and Beach Towel is a suitable travel partner, especially for short trips to the beach. The towel in black is made of pure cotton and measures 80 x 180 cm. The "Made in Germany" beach towel has classic-simple design enhanced by a woven Mercedes star.
