Choosing a holiday pushchair is such an exciting parenting rite of passage, but it can feel daunting with such an abundance of excellent products on the market. Don't worry, we can help!
We have collated our tried and tested holiday favourites to help make your choice that bit easier so that you can relax and soak up the sights knowing your baby is safe and comfortable.
What should I look for?
We've narrowed down the reams of potential criteria for selecting the perfect travel pushchair to 7 main points:
The price of the stroller will be relative to your personal circumstances. Are you buying a second stroller specifically for travel? You'll probably want something with a smaller price tag. Are you hoping to invest in a pushchair that will double up as a travel stroller? It might be worth browsing our premium products. No matter which end of the scale you sit at, we have some excellent products for you.
If you're travelling with a newborn, you'll need a pushchair that is suitable from birth. Aside from the obvious, it might be worth considering products that offer an add-on newborn option, like the Bugaboo Ant's newborn Cocoon, or the BabyZen YOYO²'s newborn nest/newborn bassinet to give your precious baby an extra secure, parent-facing place to snuggle up in.
Convenience is a top priority for every parent, and this does not stop with travel strollers. You will want something lightweight to make carrying it around with your luggage (and children!) easier, and ideally something compact if you're stowing it in a rental car with all your baggage, or if you're hoping to take it onto an airplane as hand luggage.
If you're looking to invest in a travel stroller, you'll want it to last. We have an excellent selection of pushchairs that will last your little one until they're 22kg (which is approximately 4 years old), making it worth the extra expense. However, if you're looking for something more short-term we have some great deals for you.
It's easy to overlook how much paraphernalia comes with travelling- let alone with children! So, when you're selecting which holiday buggy is going to be accompanying you on your journey, it's worth bearing in mind whether it has enough space for your passport, your wallet, your nappy bag, your suncream, your sunglasses, the baguette from the local boulangerie... You see our point, right?
Who doesn't want an Instagrammable pushchair? Family holidays are occasions we document forever, so why wouldn't you want your pushchair to look as stylish as your outfit while you lounge in the local piazza surrounded by your coordinated little ones? We have a wide range of chic pushchairs available, from the neutral pastels of BabyZen, to the bright and colourful Cybex palettes. If you're after something that looks gorgeous whilst simultaneously keeping your baby safe and snug, you'll definitely find something for you in this collection!
