A travel system with an Isofix-compatible car seat under £450

Adi • 29 Dec 2023

Hello Eli,

I'm expecting my first child in February and I'm navigating the vast options of travel systems. My budget is £450, and I'm specifically looking for a package that includes an ISO fix-compatible car seat.

I've narrowed down my choices to Joie and KinderKraft. Given the plethora of options, like 4 in 1 and 3 in 1, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed. Can you provide specific recommendations with pros and cons, taking into account your expertise? I want to take advantage of Boxing Day deals and make a purchase this year.

Best regards,

Hey, Adi,

From the two brands, I find Joie strollers much more reliable and a bit better made. Kinderkraft strollers are not too bad, but are simply cheaper-made for the most part.

You didn't specify what else should your system be for (what use, specs you need), but as an all-rounder, one of the Litetrax line or, if you find a good deal, a Joie Versatrax could really work, I believe - personally I am not as fond of the Chrome line which is really no spacious and rattles a bit.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
