Top 6 Best Travel Stroller Options

best travel stroller, best travel strollers, stroller reviews, best stroller for travel, best strollers for travelI’m firmly of the belief that you should bring a stroller when you’re traveling with baby – getting around can be one of the more complicated things to do when you’ve got your hands full with an infant or toddler and all of their stuff!

The best travel stroller is one that is easy to push and that you are comfortable folding and unfolding. A lot of other factors often come in to play, but ultimately it depends on your destination and the type of trip you are taking to determine if bringing a stroller is worth it, and if so, what kind? I don’t necessarily believe you have to purchase a 2nd, smaller or umbrella stroller for travel, although if you have the budget for it, you may as well.

If you think you will be doing a great deal of travel while your baby or toddler is little, it may be worth it to splurge on a good full-sized stroller that travels well, rather than two strollers of varying quality.

Best Travel Stroller Options – Full-Size:

UPPAbaby Vista

UPPAbaby Vista:

While most airlines are amenable to gate checking a stroller in two pieces, the fact that you can fold this full-size stroller in one piece is a big help. We traveled with our UPPAbaby Vista A LOT, and rarely was its size or weight an issue. We became quite used to the ginormous basket, however, so transitioning down to an umbrella stroller was a little tough for us!

Peg Perego Pliko P3

Peg Perego P3:

Peg Peregos were the stroller and travel system when my daughter was born – second only to the Bugaboo Frog which introduced us to the notion of spending a lot on strollers. Pegs are still reasonably priced, comparably speaking, and if you are planning on doing a lot of traveling but don’t want to purchase two strollers, the Peg Perego P3 might be right for you. It folds like an umbrella, but lays flat for naps and the connectivity with their Primo Viaggio car seat is second to none. Check out our review of travel with the Peg Perego Travel System.

Baby Jogger City Mini:

We’re seeing a lot of these around these days, and for good reason. In spite of offering a sweet, comfy, and apparently full-sized ride, it’s incredibly light and the fold mechanism is super-duper easy.

Best Travel Stroller Options – Umbrella:

UPPAbaby G-Luxe

UPPAbaby G-Luxe:

We went the umbrella stroller route for our first cruise, and I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to travel with an umbrella stroller. Granted, by then my kiddos are bigger and also seasoned travelers, but having a light stroller that didn’t take up much room was a lot easier to manouvre through the airport and our various transit routes. Read our review of travel with UPPAbaby G-Luxe to find out more.

Maclaren Triumph

Maclaren Triumph:

The Maclaren is kind of the creme de la creme of the umbrella stroller world, with many of my fellow city dweller moms opting to just babywear until their bundle is big enough to ride in the Maclaren. With prices venturing into the full-size stroller territory, Maclarens are certainly an investment, but a worthwhile one if you plan to do a lot of traveling.

Bumbleride Flite

Bumbleride Flite:

Bumbleride’s aptly-named Flite is 14lbs of functionality and is capable of doing something that most umbrella strollers can’t… With their standard universal car seat adapter, you can use it as a travel system with most infant carrier car seats.

    Thanks for this post! As an expat living in a big city with 3 small kids we travel a lot. Do you have any recommendations for a good for travel double stroller?

  2. Corinne at 19:52 #

    Hi Kacie!

    The Baby Jogger City Mini Double is also receiving raves in the Facebook stream of this post. Check it out! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153895563915720&set=a.10151326045705720.811102.97004735719&type=1&theater&notif_t=like

  3. I’m rather surprised that the BOB Revolution isn’t on this list. It’s definitely our go-to. It’s incredibly robust – carries many times beyond it’s rated weight in kids and cargo. The large inflatable tires are great on stairs, cobblestones, city streets, and overland. And it has turn-on-a-dime fingertip handling, even fully loaded.

    (No, I’m not a spokesperson for BOB. I only wish. ๐Ÿ˜› )

    We modified ours with footrests so it could be a “double.” Here’s a pic: https://scontent-b-sjc.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/t1.0-9/1962711_707387059311414_1681298461_n.jpg

      Great pick – Amy! I’ll update the list this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Kim at 14:51 #

        While I love my BOB Revolution, no way on earth would I ever call that a travel stroller!!

        • Corinne at 10:29 #

          Of course not, but it’s a great everyday stroller that can be utilized well on trips. Thanks for your feedback!

    I have to sing the praises of the Cybex Onyx. It’s the nicest umbrella stroller I’ve ever seen, with a near-flat recline and a truly awesome sun shade. I’ve traveled to Spain and around the US with it and it was perfect. We also have the Uppababy Vista, and now that we are expecting #2, the plan is to travel with the Vista and a rumble seat in case our oldest needs to rest. I’m a stroller geek….

    • Corinne at 09:09 #

      Ooh – will have to check that one out. Love to ‘meet’ a fellow stroller geek, I’m only sad now my youngest is getting too big!

    Hi There! I am new to the site and already love it! We travel a great deal with our now 17-month-old daughter. I just purchased the Mountain Buggy Nano for our recent trip to California and I couldn’t be happier with it! Very durable, light and folds up to carry-on size. The true test will be when we take it to Europe in June. I’ll let you know how it goes!! Thanks for all of the great tips!

    • Corinne at 23:05 #

      That is awesome, Natalie – thanks so much for sharing!

    • Rachel B at 03:05 #

      Just wondering how it went with the Nano? I live in Europe and am expecting my first in November – I’ve been leaning towards buying the nano but would love to hear feedback first.

    Great post! UppaBaby’s G-Luxe is always a good choice for traveling. I also like to use it because not only is it lightweight but it also has good reclining features and adjustable footrest to let my baby sleep comfortably.

  7. We use the Baby Jogger City Mini and personally, I cant recomend it enough. It is compact and solid at the same time.

    • Megan at 09:11 #

      Hi! I, too, have the Baby Jogger City Mini and will be flying with our 6 month old for the first time this week. Was debating if I should bring our City Mini or pick up something else. When you travel with your City Mini, do you check your stroller? Or gate check it?
      Thanks!

      • Corinne at 11:32 #

        Hi Megan! Probably much easier just to gate check it. And it should be waiting for you as you deplane once you arrive. Have a great trip!!

        • audri at 23:25 #

          hi, this list is amazing. I have heard a lot about BOB Revolution, haven’t seen it here.

  8. Genevieve at 04:49 #

    I love the Mountain Buggy Nano ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Ajita at 17:40 #

    Hi.. Thanks for your informational article.
    We are soon about to travel with my first who will be 3 and a half months when we travel.
    Which travel stroller would you recommend? I would not like to buy a car seat. Want to get away with only buying a stroller that last both infant-hood and toddler-hood ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks!

    • Corinne at 14:15 #

      Hi Ajita–I would definitely recommend the City Mini!

  10. hello,
    nice article you shared.
    I actually love Hot Mom 3 in 1 stroller. but i also like UPPABaby vista. Bumbleride is costly any other jogging strollers.
    but any one mind it before buying a stroller –
    1. Cost
    2. Portability
    3. Easy folding
    4. Canopy
    5. Storage
    6. Buggies
    7. Swing wheels facility
    8. Available parts
    9. Add other seat facility
    10. Strong frame

    thanks from
