Travel Systems

Travel Systems

These generally come complete with a carrycot, pushchair and car seat, or a ‘two-in-one’ pushchair and car seat combination

What is a travel system?

Travel systems make buying everything for your baby’s transport needs easy. They are often the best value when buying your infant car seat and first pushchair together. 

A travel system comprises a base chassis, to which you can add interchangeable pieces: a carrycot, infant car seat, or seat.

Travel system packages can also include accessories such as a matching changing bag, rain cover or a car seat fixed base. 

Package systems: options do vary so double check what’s included in each package.

2-in-1 travel systems – Usually include the pushchair and the car seat within the package. Some offer the chassis and the front or rearward-facing chair. 

3-in-1 pram and pushchairs – A 3-in-1 travel system, in addition to the pushchair (and any car seat package) will also include a lie-flat carrycot.

Which travel system is right for you?

Deciding your budget will help you narrow down the choice, so will deciding where and how you will use your pushchair – for example, whether to choose a three-wheeler or more narrow body pushchair. For multi-purpose use, a normal pushchair with swivel and lockable wheels makes a versatile choice. 

If you travel a lot by car, then it’s worth choosing a package with an infant carrier car seat included within the price.

How much will a travel system cost?

The price varies between 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 packages. There are excellent, well established brands that offer full 3-in-1 travel systems for as little as £150. Graco and Hauck are good value favourites. Top end brands such as iCandy, SilverCross or Bugaboo cost considerably more.

Top tips for buying a travel system

You don’t have to buy all of your products from one brand. Many infant carriers will fit onto several chassis’. Just check with manufacturers, or in-store.

Lockable front wheels are a real bonus over uneven terrain if you don’t want a full off-road pushchair. 

Accessories: You can buy universal rain covers or sun covers and parasols at a fraction of the cost of own-brand.
