Now we should also get our cars checked and prepared for the season and that also includes few accessories that can go a long way in helping us during monsoons. Here's a list of the top five must have car accessories for monsoons.

Pocket Car Umbrella
We all know why we need an umbrella during monsoon. Nowadays, compact size umbrellas are available which are designed to fit in a car's door pockets when folded. In fact, quite a few models offer dedicated umbrella holders as well that are integrated in the door pockets.
Rubber Floor Mats
Fabric carpet mats easily get damped and soiled during monsoons. It also leads to unwanted moistness and odour issue in our cabin. And so it is always advisable to install rubber mats inside the car as they will not only prevent the fabric mats from getting wet, but also are easy to maintain.
Mud flaps are one of the most basic and essential accessories on a car and they are primarily required to save fellow motorists from tyre splashes and also prevent your car from a "mud bath". While we recommend you to have mud flaps assembled on your cars throughout the year, they are all the more necessary in monsoons.
The general rule of thumb is to replace your wiper blades every six to twelve months. But depending on where you live and how often you drive, you may need to replace them sooner.
Rain Shoe Cover
Rain shoe covers are one of the latest innovations in the accessories market and they are a saviour in monsoons. These shoe covers are made of silicon and are worn over your shoes, providing an additional waterproof layer for your shoes.
So in a way they are raincoats for your shoes. They save them from getting wet and soiled during monsoons and you simply need to take them off when you step inside the car and can put on when steeping out. They can also be folded and so are easy to store in door pockets.
