What are the best double travel strollers?

Best Double Travel Strollers

 

Any of these strollers will be suitable for families seeking a compact, lightweight double stroller. However, not all strollers are created equal. Read on to discover which stroller is the best choice for your specific lifestyle needs.

What double stroller is the best for plane travel? Babyzen YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller vs. Silver Cross Jet Double vs. UPPAbaby G-Link V2:

There are three ways to travel with a stroller by airplane:

  1. Check your stroller with your luggage.
  2. Gate check your stroller when boarding the plane. 
  3. Board the plane with your stroller and store it in the overhead bin. 

Let's consider the three above scenarios.

  1. If you check your stroller with your luggage, you surrender your means of transporting your children through the airport. It's wise to keep your stroller with you as long as possible, considering the time you'll spend waiting to board, the possibility of delays, and layovers. Opting to gate check your stroller or board the plane with it are much more efficient choices.
  2. Gate checking your stroller entails passing through security with your stroller and maintaining access to use it until you board the plane. As you board the plane you will then fold it down and pass it  over to the flight crew, it will then be stored with luggage on the underside of the plane. This method is very efficient but there is one challenge to consider. Flight crews are notoriously rough on gear. Imagine the nightmare of arriving to your destination to find your stroller damaged or broken! Parents can save themselves this stress by opting for a stroller that fits into a padded, protective, travel bag.
  3. Boarding the plane with your stroller is the best way to ensure it remains safe. However, only the smallest strollers will fit into an overhead bin. Parents who prefer to keep their stroller with them should ensure they purchase one that complies with their airline's carry-on regulations.

Our top double stroller picks for gate checking are the UPPAbaby G-Link V2 and the Silver Cross Jet Double.

The UPPAbaby G-Link V2 best fits this scenario because of one specific reason: UPPAbaby offers  a protective travel bag specifically designed to keep the G-Link V2 safe. The UPPAbaby G-Link Travel Bag includes UPPAbaby's TravelSafe program, this program is  essentially travel insurance. If  the G-Link V2 stroller accrues any damage during travel while packed inside the G-Link Travel Bag, it is covered by UPPAbaby's TravelSafe program. UPPAbaby offers parents peace of mind while traveling!

The Silver Cross Jet Double is a stand out option for gate checking as Silver Cross also offers a travel bag. The Jet Double is the best gate checking option for parents traveling with an infant car seat because of it's infant car seat compatibility. This feature gives it an edge over the UPPAbaby G-Link V2 which can not be used as a travel system.

Silver Cross Jet Double with Travel Bag

Our top pick for overhead bin storage is the Babyzen YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller. This is actually the only option for parents who wish to board the plane with a double stroller. The YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller is truly one of a kind! It folds into two separate pieces, each with its own shoulder carry strap, and is guaranteed to fit in overhead bin storage. Babyzen has always been a go-to for traveling families with their original YOYO. With the innovative YOYO2 Connect, families with double stroller needs can also travel light and easy!

What double travel stroller is best for travel system use? Babyzen YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller vs. Nuna TRVL dubl:

If you will be traveling with your infant car seat or need a lightweight double stroller for everyday use that can be easily transitioned in and out of the car, it’s important to consider infant car seat compatibility. Only a few of the strollers on our list can be paired with an infant car seat, we’ve narrowed our top choices to the two that provide the smoothest car to stroller experiences.

Babyzen YOYO2 with Connect and Infant Car Seat

The Babyzen YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double Stroller can be paired with one infant car seat. Babyzen offers a versatile adapter compatible with a variety of industry-leading infant car seat brands. This adapter is unique because it can be folded with the stroller, enhancing the user experience and eliminating the risk of losing the adapter.

Nuna TRVL dubl with PIPA infant car seat

The Nuna TRVL dubl can only be paired with Nuna infant car seats. However, the TRVL dubl is the only stroller on our list that offers an adapter-free connection. All Nuna infant car seats are directly compatible with the TRVL dubl by securing on top of the stroller's arm bar. This adapter-free connection is not only convenient but also budget-friendly, as parents do not have to incur extra cost for an adapter. The TRVL dubl can only hold one infant car seat.

If you are expecting twins, you will likely be interested in a stroller that can hold two infant car seats. The Valco Baby Trend Duo is the only stroller on our list that has this capability. Valco offers two different style adapters, each uniquely designed to fit one side of the stroller. There are a few car seat options that are compatible with both adapters. While you will need to use two different adapters to fit two infant car seats side by side, you can still pair matching car seats.

In addition to being compatible with double infant car seats, the Trend Duo can also hold two bassinets side by side! It truly is the most versatile lightweight double stroller option for twins!

Nuna TRVL dubl

The Nuna TRVL dubl is the winner in this category as well! First, side-by-side double strollers are easier to maneuver compared to inline double strollers.
