Strollers That Fit in an Overhead Compartment Bin


strollers that fit in an overhead compartment bin

While plenty of strollers are small and lightweight for travel, only a few on the market are actually compact enough to fit into an airplane's overhead compartment bin.

Most umbrella strollers still require checking or gate-checking, leaving them vulnerable to getting dirty—or getting tossed (and broken) on the jetway.

Stroller policies vary by airline, and some airlines don't allow strollers as carry-on items regardless of their size. Be sure to check your airline's policy before traveling.

But if you're looking for a carry-on stroller, we recommend one of these two: the Babyzen Yoyo+ or the Baby Jogger City Tour.


The Babyzen Yoyo+ is the most luxurious travel stroller on the market, with features like infant car seat compatibility, foam wheels and all-wheel suspension that make it comparable to full-size strollers. The Yoyo+ folds to an ultra-compact size and springs open with one hand. Carry the Yoyo+ by its included strap or travel bag.

  • Folded dimensions: 20"L x 17"W x 7"H
  • Weight: 13.6 pounds
  • Car seat compatible: Cybex, Nuna, Maxi-Cosi car seats

  • Price: $495.00


Baby Jogger says its City Tour stroller folds 30 percent smaller than its closest competitor. The stroller folds compactly and quickly when you pull a strap in the seat. Carry the City Tour onboard the plane using an included bag that can also be worn as a backpack.
