    We provide you with detailed, honest, and comprehensive reviews of each travel system on this list, including not only the pros and cons of each travel system but also our final verdict, which is directly informed by consumer ratings and opinions.

    As you’re reading our reviews below, here are the top things to consider before purchasing an infant car seat:

    These are the top five things you’ll need to consider when purchasing a travel system for your child:

    1. Ease of use – A travel system should always be user-friendly, particularly when it comes to folding and unfolding the stroller, attaching your child’s car seat, and manoeuvrability. 
    2. Value for money – We take a look at both cheap and expensive travel systems and highlight what each of them offer. It’s up to you whether the travel system suits your family budget.
    3. Car seat compatibility – While most of the strollers in this list are a part of a travel system, if you already have an infant car seat and are looking for a stroller to accompany it we highly recommend purchasing a stroller that is compatible with your pre-existing car seat.
    4. Lifestyle – If you’re a family that’s always on the go, you will want to look for a travel system that is lightweight and compact.
    5. Accessories – Travel systems should offer ultimate convenience to both you and your child and this can be done through the built-in accessories, such as a parent tray, child tray, cup holders, storage compartments, and storage baskets.

    Keep In Mind

    • While this travel system provides value for money, it definitely comes at a higher price tag and may not be suitable for all family budgets.
    • Even when folded, the stroller can be too large and bulky to fit in the trunks of smaller or more compact vehicles.
    • There is only 1 cup holder in the parent tray and the holder can be too shallow for larger bottles.
    • While the stroller fabrics are removable and machine-washable they can be a pain to get back on so it may be best to refer to your user manual

    Overall, the Chicco Cortina CX Travel System is fantastic and top of the line travel system that offers manoeuvrability, safety, comfort, and customization.

    • The push handle is not height-adjustable, which may cause issues for really tall or really short parents.
    • If you’re planning on using a different infant car seat with the stroller, please note that you may need to use an included strap as they will not ‘click’ in like the Baby Trend car seats.

    FAQs: Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions Parents Often Have About Baby Car Seat Stroller/ Travel Systems

    1. What is a travel system?

      A travel system is an infant car seat and stroller combination where you can attach your infant car seat into the stroller. However, both portions can be also used separately. While you can mix and match different models of strollers and car seats for a customized combination, a travel system will save you a lot of time, money, and stress.

      There are a few different types of travel systems available on the market today, all of which are designed specifically to suit different lifestyle needs and requirements. We’ll go through each of the different types so you can see what best suits you and your child.

      3-wheel

      • A 3-wheel travel system is more compact and slim compared to other travel systems. They are a great choice if you live in a city due to the crowds, narrow passages, and sidewalks you encounter but also that as they tend to be more lightweight and compact, they can be easily stored within small spaces, including apartments.

      4-wheel

      • A 4-wheel travel system is sturdy and designed for those longer adventures. They accommodate both children and parents with the storage space they provide, including a storage basket, cup holders and other various compartments.

      Jogger

      • A jogger travel system is specifically designed for those parents who lead an active lifestyle so you can jog while keeping a close eye on your kid. They are often compact, slim, and lightweight while also featuring larger wheels for improved suspension and maneuverability.

      Double

      • Whether you’ve got twins, children of similar ages, or children of different ages a double stroller is the one for you as this travel system will transport 2 children in separate stroller seats. While they tend to be rather bulky and heavy, many models have a slim frame so you can fit through your standard entrances easily.

    2. Do I need a travel system?

      Ah, the million-dollar question! While you do not exactly need a travel system, it is one of the more convenient options for a number of reasons, including the following:

      • Parents believe it is the most flexible option as it allows you to transfer your child from the car to the stroller or vice versa without disturbing them.
      • You will not need to spend the extra time researching and purchasing a separate infant car seat and stroller. A travel system eliminates this completely, freeing up your time and money.
      • For parents on-the-go, a travel system is the most logical option, whether you’re taking them to daycare or spending a day at the park. You will not only not have to carry your child for long periods of time, but you can also use the travel system to store your child’s drinks, snacks, and their diaper bag.
      • Traditional strollers cannot be typically used until your child is around 6 months of age and/or can sit upright without requiring assistance. Comparatively, a travel system accommodates newborns and small infants as the infant car seat can connect and click into the stroller portion. You can use a travel system up until your child is 50 pounds, providing you with years of usage.

    3. What should I consider when looking for a travel system?

      There is a fair amount to consider when looking for a travel system as you are not only purchasing a stroller but also an infant car seat, which we believe is the most important part to consider in terms of safety, comfort, convenience, and value for money. We’ve got you covered as we have compiled a comprehensive list of all the factors you should consider when purchasing a travel system:

      • An infant car seat with a higher weight limit (35+ pounds) so your child has room to grow.
      • An infant car seat with push-on LATCH connectors, rather than the difficult to use hook-style connectors. 
      • An infant car seat with a no-rethread harness, which will save you a lot of time,
      • Breathable, non-toxic fabrics.
      • Removable and machine-washable seat pads/fabrics.
      • A large and extendable canopy that provides ultimate UV protection.
      • A stroller with good suspension and superior maneuverability so you’re not straining any muscles while pushing your child along.
      • A stroller that is quick and easy for your older child to climb in and out of.
      • A stroller that is easy to fold and unfold.
      • A travel system that offers a simple and quick attachment of the infant car seat to the stroller.
      • Parent and child trays with cup holders and storage compartments.
      • A stroller that offers a large enough storage basket to fit those essentials, including a diaper bag.

    4. Can I reuse the stroller component?

      The short answer to this question is yes, you can reuse the stroller component of your travel system as there tends to be less wear and tear on the stroller compared to the infant car seat. However, please note that both the infant car seat and the stroller have expiration dates.

      Prior to reusing the stroller we strongly recommend that you check all components and features to ensure none are damaged or need replacing, we suggest inspecting the following parts: wheels, joints, harnesses, seat fabric, and handles. If you intend on reusing the stroller you can also continue to purchase compatible car seats as your child grows up until you reach the stroller expiration date. This saves you time and money in the long term.

    5. Will I save money if I buy a travel system?

      When it comes to price, there are a variety of travel systems on offer that range from the high-end and luxury models to the inexpensive and budget-friendly models. While safety is, of course, parents’ highest priority (and for good reason!) when it comes to car seats, strollers, and travel systems, money is still an important player for many families when choosing child safety products.

      In response to if purchasing a travel system will save you money, the short answer is yes, you will save some money and we have a couple of more tips for you to help you save your hard-earned cash:

      • We highly recommend deciding how much you want to spend on a travel system and looking for travel systems that do not exceed your budget. Typically, purchasing an infant car seat and a stroller separately to create your own combination will cost you more, however, this is not always true. The best way to check is to do a little bit of investigation work and compare the prices of both the infant car seat and stroller separately and then the price of the travel system. Even if you only save $50 or less, we know that every bit counts, particularly when you have a young family to care for.
      • If you already have an infant car seat but are searching for a stroller to go with it then, of course, it would be in your best interest to create a custom car seat and stroller combination to save money. Some car seat brands will offer strollers that are compatible with several of their infant car seats or you can purchase a car seat adapter, which will ensure your pre-existing infant car seat is compatible with a number of strollers.

    6. What are the alternatives to an infant car seat stroller combination?

      There are a few alternatives to an infant car seat and stroller combo, we run through a couple of these alternatives below:

      • Baby carrier: You can use a baby carrier as an alternative, however, it’s important to keep in mind that a baby carrier will not be as stable or comfortable for your child. It will also become quite tiring to carry if walking long distances, especially if the baby carrier does not have a padded, ergonomic handle.
      • Slings, wearable carriers, and backpacks: If you have a newborn or small infant, these are also a great alternative. The main advantage is that you can keep your little one close and your baby will feel secure and comfortable. On the other hand, the main disadvantage is that as a parent, you may experience back pain after long periods of time.
      • Stroller with a bassinet: Also referred to as a pram, this allows your child to lay flat and sleep. However, child safety experts do not recommend these for long periods of sleep. They also tend to be too bulky for everyday use.
