An upright travel stroller under £300

Quagga • 29 Apr 2023

Hi Eli,

I'm looking for an easy-fold travel stroller but one that sits upright for my 8m old. It doesn't need to fit into the overhead storage on the plane. We have the Joie Tourist and the fact that it doesn't sit upright annoys me. Something not more than £300. Do you have any recommendations?

Hey, Quagga,

I am not sure how big can we go for if you need a travel stroller, but remember the lighter / more compact it will be, and also the cheaper, the less of a chance of a really upright seat. From my experience, Joie strollers, the mid-sized and larger-sized ones, are not too expensive but rather upright, so maybe the Joie Litetrax could work for you (but it is not 90 degrees).

Also, the Peg-Pérego Booklet is on the more upright side.

The Mamas&Papas Airo is boasting one of the most upright seats, travel-strollers-wise, so perhaps good to check that up, too. The reversible Eezy S-Twist2 by Cybex is also one of the upright ones.

Remember, it is also about the seat depth and overall design, so the best is to try before buying.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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