The Top 7 Travel Prams in Australia in 2022

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.

Here are the 7 best travel prams in Australia in 2022:

1. Bugaboo Butterfly, $749.00

When you imagine a travel pram, you imagine something lightweight, easy to fold and unfold, and take anywhere with you. Further to that, you want it to be comfortable for your baby, and also for you to push! The Bugaboo Butterfly is just that - and so, so much more.

What makes the Bugaboo Butterfly different?

The Bugaboo Butterfly offers the ultimate solution for busy parents; featuring a one second, one hand fold and an ultra-compact design, the Butterfly allows for seamless transitions in day-to-day life. The Butterfly’s ingenious Dutch design was inspired by decades of innovation, with a huge list of features being carefully incorporated into the Butterfly’s design.

It only takes one second to fold the Butterfly down to a neat, tidy package. The best bit is that you can fold it down easily with one hand, while holding your baby in the other! When it comes time to unfold, air unfold technology means all it takes is one quick movement and then gravity does the rest.

Why try the Bugaboo Butterfly?

The Bugaboo Butterfly is so lightweight and compact, it can be tucked away almost anywhere, and its sturdy upright design means it stays standing wherever you put it down. It fits neatly under tables, next to train seats, in taxi boots or even in overhead luggage compartments. You can carry it 100% handsfree just by slinging the strap over your shoulder. 

Designed specifically for babies from 6 months old and weighing up to 22 kg, the Bugaboo Butterfly is ideal for parents seeking a second stroller for their growing child. With the roomiest seat of any city stroller, extra padded cushioning and a multi position recline, the Butterfly lets the child lay back and relax. The stroller also comes with a five-position leg rest and a convenient quick-click harness, which is perfect for busy children wanting to climb in and out with ease! 

The Butterfly also features four rugged wheels, a one hand push, a 4-wheel suspension and an invincible chassis. All combined to give you amazing maneuverability regardless of the road you take or the load you carry!

Real customer reviews:

“Loving my new butterfly. I opened the box and you simply push in two buttons with one hand and the whole thing pops right open. It also closes that easily as well. It is light weight and so compact. It has a comfortable shoulder strap so it’s easy to carry for trips or even just to take up less room in the trunk when you have other baby stuff to haul around. I got the green and it is the prettiest color for our sweet little boy. The car seat adapter is easy to add to the stroller and his Nuna Air car seat just pops right on. I love this stroller and how it can grow with our little boy for several years to come.” - Jlw25

“I was looking for a compact stroller and preordered the butterfly. I originally wanted it to travel & took it on our trip. It was amazing. It easily fit in the overhead of the airplane and closes and opens so easily! You can do it one handed! Best money spent for sure and my one year old can use it plus my three year old. The extension for laying down is amazing and works great! It has been such a lifesaver and totally worth it. I highly recommend. Love how sturdy it is but also so compact at the same time. I had another compact stroller and it was so flimsy. I love this one and highly recommend it. So glad I purchased it and decided to spend the money.” - Kyla C

"I've used 2 other travel prams previous to the skip and this is by far my favourite. great price, lightweight and sturdy. we took it to Bali and had no issues getting around. he slept a lot while we were over there, so could lay it back and have the full hood covering him so he didn't get sunburnt. It's very easy to push. the hood doesn't hit your hands when it's not being used like on the nano. I love how simple it is to fold. I ended up using it as my every day pram once my youngest got to the in-between stage of sometimes being in the pram and sometimes walking. he's nearly 4 and i still have it in boot just in case." - Nerri, November 2021

"I love this pram!! So lightweight and easy to handle! Folds so small and neat, my son loves to sleep in it and i love the long hood when he is snoozing." - Courtney C, February 2020

Real customer reviews:

"In my view, this is the best travel stroller on the market. Hands down. If you use it as intended. This is a TRAVEL stroller. Please don’t buy it expecting it to be a silver cross comet or silver cross wave. Those are walking strollers, this is not a walking stroller. It is the perfect stroller for in and out of the car, public transportation or to fold extremely small and light. I have the silver cross wave for walking and silver cross jet for in and out of the car and for traveling. If used as intended, I believe it’s the body company stroller on the market and one of the lightest ever." - BBBCustomer, Lan N, November 2021

"Okay, I don’t even know where to begin! When my son was born in 2017, I bought that years model of the Silver Cross Jet stroller. I was a little disappointed with my purchase because it wasn’t the greatest quality stroller I was expecting it to be. HOWEVER, when I heard there was an updated, “renovated” version I knew I had to give it one more try.... and I’m very happy to announce that I’m very pleased with my decision!!!! The updated 2020 Silver Cross Jet is just beautiful! The quality is perfection. The material is strong and looks expensive, the colors are exotic, and the “ride” is super smooth. Some upgrades I noticed immediately were: larger basket, easier time when folding, very sturdy, smooth ride, safety bar when using with car seat adapters, higher handle bar (for all those tall husbands who were struggling), and wide and deep seat for baby. I can’t stress enough how much happier I am with the product and how much easier my daily activities have gotten while using this stroller. I 100% absolutely recommend this product. Thank you SilverCross! - EtsyG, February 2021

"Love it, folds up nice and compact. Perfect for daytime naps when out and about. Easy to push and manoeuvre. Folds up small enough you can carry it on the plane." - Jenna, December 2021

"This pram is exactly what we were after! We wanted Something more compact but still with a seat that has a decent width and length due to having taller kids and this is exactly that! Only down fall is the smaller basket, other than that we love how easily it folds, how light it is, how little space it takes up in the boot and that I can use it for a long time to come still :)" - Ashleigh H, June 2021

Real customer reviews:

"This stroller is everything I have ever wanted! You always hear people raving about uppababy and I wondered if it would live up to the hype. It 150% does. It handles like a dream. My old bulky stroller would randomly go sideways or get the wheels twisted where as you can push the minu with one finger! The material is high quality and soft but also easy to clean. The handles are comfortable and luxurious. One of my favorite parts about uppababy is that they have endless accessories to work with your stroller. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase!" - Tes2590, July 2021

"Stroller practically drives itself. Super lightweight. One hand push. Love the little storage pouch in the back. Comes with a dust bag. Folds up super easy. And my 22 month old doesn’t slouch in it. So happy to never have to deal with my old maclaren again." - Nicole, May 2021
