Inside: Review of the BRITAX HOLIDAY super lightweight pushchair.
I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve seen people asking for recommendations for a lightweight pushchair to take on holiday.
You don’t want to be taking your travel system abroad, do you? First of all, it would probably take up most of your baggage allowance but most importantly you don’t want it to get damaged!!
It isn’t just for travelling abroad that you might want a compact pushchair though. Whenever I travel by train, it is much much easier for me to navigate around with a lighter system. Not to mention going on the underground – manoeuvring a large pushchair is an absolute nightmare, isn’t it?
The BRITAX HOLIDAY is the perfect lightweight, compact pushchair as it folds down so neatly that it barely takes up any space at all.
Despite being lightweight, it doesn’t lack the important features you’d need and want in a pushchair. It has swivel wheels, a large shopping basket and I love that it has a large hood with a sun visor – little details like that make a big difference when travelling with a baby.
It weighs just 5kg and will fit into overhead compartments on trains and aeroplanes, with a length of 60cm and width of 25.5cm. It is great for our trips around the UK too as it doesn’t take up valuable space in our boot!
The BRITAX HOLIDAY is suitable from 6 months until around 3 years (15kg) and you know that being BritaxRömer, it will last and last.
As you know, Britax Römer are the leaders in safety and so you know your child will be secure with their sturdy 5-point harness. The straps can be adjusted to 3 heights too, so will grow with your child.
Putting it up and down is nice and easy, with a 2 -step process. There is a button release on the top bar between the handles which depresses easily.
You then raise the two levers to fold it down to a compact size.
To unfold, simply pull the levers again to release the lock and ensure the top bar is clicked back into place. Easy!
To make travelling even easier, the pushchair has a handy strap so you can carry it over your shoulder – this would be perfect for the underground, wouldn’t it?
The BRITAX HOLIDAY is available in Steel Grey as shown here, as well as Coral Peach, Cosmos Black, Aqua Green, Ocean Blue and Flame Red.
Are you going on holiday soon?
