Babies are small, but all their stuff definitely isn't. It hit me when I recently brought my own bundle of joy home to overflowing closets and a hallway lined with So. Much. Baby. Gear. And, I swear I only bought the bare necessities. Nearly six months later, one success stands out amidst the chaos... our stroller. I found my holy grail travel stroller to keep up with my active lifestyle.

It takes a lot to qualify as a travel stroller. Any old stroller can fold, to be sure, but the best travel strollers need to be as light as a feather and easily-transformable. Basically, you want to be able to pull out the impossibly small bag that holds the stroller (yes, a storage container with comfortable handles is a requirement) and have the pint-size pram emerge in Mary Poppins fashion whenever you need it.

At the same time, no stroller can skimp on the essentials like safety, durability, and comfort for your baby. The last thing a busy mom or dad needs is either a broken wheel mid-airport run, or a malfunction that could jeopardize your child's safety when you're out traveling.

I realize these are lofty expectations, but they are not impossible to meet. There are a lot of strollers boasting top travel-friendly features on the market ranging from budget-friendly $50 models to splurge-worthy $500 strollers that are worth it if you have the budget.

      What experts recommend when shopping for a travel stroller:

      Sarah Huff, senior manager of community and customer and baby gear product expert at BabyQuip, has a list of essential features every travel stroller should have. She recommends looking for something lightweight with an easy one-handed folding capability, in addition to it being small and compact so it doesn’t take up much room in a rental car or overhead bin. "Add a TSA-friendly carrying case to your online shopping cart if you're planning to gate-check your stroller, too. Airlines can be rough on strollers," Huff adds.

      Considering the fact that travel often comes paired with a lot of walking around while you play tourist, you'll also want to prioritize sturdy wheels that are easy to maneuver. "There's no point in having a stroller that hinders your travel," says Huff.

      Every stroller on the list below checks every single one of the below boxes. Plus, some of them include additional helpful features, like a fully reclining seat for sleepy babies, or a canopy if you plan on going somewhere that's particularly sunny or rainy.

      See below for the 15 best travel strollers in 2022 for every age, budget, and type of family vacation you plan on taking.
