Key Factors to Consider When Buying a Travel Pram

Before we dive into the list, let’s discuss some key factors that you should consider when buying a travel pram or stroller:

  • Size and Weight: The size and weight of the pram are crucial, especially if you are frequently on the move. An easily foldable compact stroller or lightweight stroller is easier to carry and manoeuvre, especially in crowded places or when using public transportation. It’s also important to consider whether the pram will fit in your car boot or be carried upstairs or onto public transport. Some prams even fit in the overhead compartment on a plane.
  • Age of Children: The age and size of your child also play a role in the type of pram you should choose. Some prams are better suited for newborns, offering flat reclining seats and the ability to attach a bassinet or baby capsule. Others are designed for toddlers, with more upright seating and sturdier frames. Some prams are convertible and can adapt as your child grows.
  • Portability: A pram that can be easily folded and carried is ideal for travel. Some prams even come with a carry bag or shoulder strap for added convenience. Look for prams that can be folded with one hand or have a self-standing fold for ease of use. An ultra-compact stroller like the Babyzen YOYO2 or the Joolz Aer + can be a game-changer for travel.
  • Ease of Use and Quality: The pram should be easy to use with adjustable handlebars and a safety harness. Prioritize quality by seeking resilient materials, durable fabric, and a reliable frame. Consider the frame material, the fabric’s durability, and the quality of the wheels.
  • Safety: Safety features such as a sturdy frame, good travel system and wheel suspension, reliable brakes, and a 5-point harness are essential. Check if the pram has been tested and approved to current safety standards. Also, consider if it has a large sun canopy or sunshade to protect your child from the sun and other elements.
  • Comfort: Your baby’s comfort is paramount. Look for prams with a comfortable seat, multiple recline positions for naps, and good suspension. A well-padded seat and adjustable footrest can also enhance your baby’s comfort. Consider a pram with breathable fabric if you live in a hot climate.
  • Cleaning: Baby prams can get messy, so easy-to-clean materials are a plus. Removable and machine-washable fabrics can make your life much easier. Also, consider if the pram has a removable and easy-to-clean tray.
  • Additional Features: Look for prams with additional features like a cup holder, rain cover, storage basket for nappies, and adapters for attaching a car seat, baby carrier or baby capsule. Some prams also come with a travel bag, liners, storage bag, leg rest, bumper bar, and extendable sun cover.

Travelling In The Air With Strollers

When it comes to air travel, you can take any stroller on the plane for free. However, they normally need to go in the plane hold, where your suitcases go. This is standard procedure for most airlines, but it’s always a good idea to check with your specific airline for their rules and regulations.

Compact Strollers and Air Travel

Some strollers are so compact that they are suitable for plane travel and fold up small enough to be considered an airline-friendly stroller and as hand luggage! These collapsible strollers are incredibly useful – especially with a heavy toddler.


Benefits of Compact Strollers

The benefit of having a really compact stroller or travel pram as your carry on means that you can literally land, pop the baby into the pram, walk down the aisle and off the plane towards baggage reclaim (providing there is an air bridge of course.) This can make the entire process of deboarding the plane and collecting your luggage much smoother and less stressful. Just make sure you remember:

  • Compact and lightweight features make it a practical choice for a travel stroller.
  • Double strollers are unlikely to fit in the overhead stowage bins but will be permitted to go in the hold.
  • A compact fold stroller will sometimes meet the measurement criteria of hand baggage.


Remember, the best travel pram for your family ultimately depends on your specific needs and lifestyle. Consider factors such as size, weight, ease of use, the need for a single pram or double stroller and comfort when making a decision. Safe travels!
