Best Travel Prams: Anyone that’s ever gone on a holiday with a baby, a toddler, and only a single pram, knows how awful it can be. Truly, truly awful. Give yourself a break and invest in a travel stroller. Worth every parent or carers’ hard-earned cash, are these things – the BEST strollers for travel out there! The first time I went away with Freddie & Delilah together, I didn’t know these things existed at such a lightweight level, why I hadn’t noticed them previously I’ll never know, but I am their ultimate champion now!

We’ve since done a lot of research (online and speaking with other parents and experts) and utilised a few different types of travel strollers, and what follows is our list of the 25 best we’ve found so far, including a detailed breakdown of our 5 favourites.

Without further ado – Enjoy!

Best Travel Prams: Things to Consider when Purchasing

best travel prams

Size & Weight

The main differences between a regular stroller and a travel stroller are going to be the size and weight – there’s no avoiding it really. The best strollers for travel are considerably lighter and usually smaller than their heavier counterparts (so much easier, especially if travelling without another adult helper).

You’ll still want one with a compact fold, it honestly makes such a difference when travelling. You don’t want your stroller taking up all your valuable luggage space (or arm strength!).

Extra Features

Some of these prams for travel come with additional features such as cup holders, bag clips etc. I find what is most important, however, are the safety features which are absolute MUSTS – locking wheels, 5 point harness, and a design that ensures it won’t tip when seats are reclined.

Ease of Folding

How do you actually collapse the stroller? Luckily most companies provide YouTube videos now so you can see it in action and practice!

If you are flying or travelling solo (plus kids, obviously), then an easy folding function is a must when you are looking for the best compact travel stroller.  Some of the best foldable strollers for travel can quickly and easily be folded up using just one hand.

There will be times when you are trying to hold your baby and fold up the stroller at the same time. A one handed fold will SAVE. YOUR. LIFE.

Your Budget

There are some all singing/all dancing travel strollers out there – but these do come with a higher price tag – and usually a heavier weight. The best lightweight strollers for travel that we have listed below are from a range of prices from basic to luxe.

Type of Terrain it Can Handle

A big compromise on making a stroller light and compact is usually the wheels.  By making the wheels smaller, they do not need to be removed when the stroller is folded. This means the wheels may not be as good as larger wheels on rough terrain. Those models with very small wheels may struggle on high curbs, particularly when they’re carrying a full load of kids. Watch that coffee!!

Sun Protection

Getting that child or children to nap is easier when the sun is not glaring in their eyes.  Many of the brands we looked at had somewhat compromised on the sun cover to get smaller and lighter, but we still think the sun canopy is an essential travel feature, which is why all of the travel prams we have recommended don’t skimp on sun protection.

A large extendable canopy is seriously important to keep your babies out of the harsh sunlight. However, there are extra products you can purchase if the canopies aren’t ideal – just keep this in mind for budtet.


You’ll still be carrying around all the diapers, snacks and other baby and toddler travel essentials, so choose a lightweight travel stroller with enough storage. PLEASE.

You may still want to use a stroller organiser for important items while you’re travelling without needing to dig in the basket.


Your stroller still needs to be comfortable, even if lightweight – so be sure to check out real parent reviews (like our list of the best prams for travel below!) so your little ones will enjoy being in it and with any luck nap in it (i’ve got my fingers crossed for you)
