The Top 7 Travel Prams in Australia 2021

Are you looking for the best travel pram or travel stroller?

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.


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!


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.


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.

The 7 best travel prams in 2021:

1. Edwards & Co Otto, $399.00

Edwards & Co Otto is widely recognised as the ultimate all-rounder! Take it on a plane, sit, lay flat, you’re always guaranteed a smooth ride.

What makes Edwards & Co Otto different?

Able to be folded away using just one hand in just three seconds flat, the Edwards & Co Otto is the ultimate pram for parents on the go. Able to be used from newborn, right up to 20kg, this is the travel pram that can be used just like a regular pram - but without the bulk and the hassle!

Why try Edwards & Co Otto?

The Edwards & Co Otto features a UPF50+ canopy, adjustable footrest, and comes in multiple colourways (we love the sage green!). Better still, the Otto has won multiple design awards, which is testament to its durability and performance, despite not having the weight of traditional prams. The Otto is perfect to take on flights as it is incredibly compact and lightweight (only 7kgs!) and even fits in the overhead compartments! Mind you, it also makes a more than comfortable everyday pram, too!

Real customer reviews:

We absolutely love our Otto! We got ours for our 4th son and I can't recommend it enough. It gets used multiple times every day. School/kindy runs, supermarket shops plus many other things. The Otto has also been a godsend keeping our toddler comfy during his many hospital visits/surgeries for his kidneys.” - Kelsey O

“The Edwards & Co Otto has been an absolute Game Changer for us! Our little girl was too nosey for her own good and did not want to be laid flat, however, was not yet big enough to sit right up in the stroller we had. With the Otto we have been able to get out and about with her able to sit up safely just enough to look around until she dozed off to sleep (completely unheard of for her!). We were then able to gently lay her down and carry on with our outing. The Otto is comfortable for baby as well as easy to manoeuvre around small spaces, even one handed. Once folded it is compact enough to keep in the car without worry of having no boot space when needed. We absolutely love it!” - Amanda G
