Can You Check Baby Gear for Free at an Airport?

Yes typically! Generally most airlines allow you to check one stroller and one car seat per child for free. However, it's always advisable to check with the specific airline you're flying for their rules and regulations. You can check these items at the ticket counter or you can choose to bring them to the gate and check them there where you will drop them off at the bottom of the ramp prior to boarding.

We always advise protecting your gear with travel bags! We have seen many strollers and car seats get damaged when traveling, and you never know how the crew is going to handle your items so better safe than sorry. Plus travel bags keep dirt, grim, and other things off your gear! Some brands make their own dedicated travel bags like UPPAbaby, Bugaboo, and Nuna. And some even provide some sort of travel insurance with the purchase of the bag! Let us know if you need help finding the right travel bags for your needs!
