best travel prams 2020 australia

Finding the right prams for babies when you’re constantly on the move brings about a whole host of challenges when you become new parent, but there’s now a new wave of travel prams and compact strollers on the scene to make life significantly easier and save your back a whole lot of pain.

Travelling with kids feels like you are taking everything but the kitchen sink with you- so to help you out we have also created the ultimate checklist for travelling with kids over here.

But which travel pram is best for you? We’ve rounded up the latest compact travel stroller in Australia to help you with your search. These travel strollers aren’t just great for babies but they are also a great toddler lightweight stroller. Small buggys and prams for babies is just a taste of what we’ve road tested below.

What should you look for in a travel pram?

When setting out to purchase a travel pram, there are a few things you need to keep in mind before making your final decision.

Size:

One of the most important features of a travel pram is the size. Most people opt for a travel pram as their children grow bigger and need a less bulky mode of transport. It should be small enough to fit in the boot of the car, or in the overhead compartment on air airplane. Buying bulky prams for travel defeats the purpose of attaining a smaller, more compact solution for travel, as you want something you can just whip out, pop baby in and go!

Transportability:

Now, even if your travel pram is smaller than your regular pram, it won’t necessarily serve its purpose as a solution for easier travel unless it weighs less, and folds up more compact than a regular pram. For example, travel prams should fold down with one touch, and should come complete with a strap to throw over your shoulder so that you’re not forced to lug it around during travel. Travel prams are also a popular option for road trips and interstate travel, as they take up far less room in your car.

Quality:

When people think of travel prams, often they picture those flimsy umbrella strollers that many of us were carted around in as kids. However, we are thrilled to let you know that modern travel prams couldn’t be further from that. In fact, many travel prams you’ll see on the market could be even sturdier and of a better quality than your regular pram. It’s always a good idea to read reviews and research the brand make and model before making your purchase.
