Dual stroller in airplane

Hello,

Next month we will be traveling to South Africa with 3 young kids (11 monts, 2 years, 3 years). We would like to take 2 strollers which we can connect or a small duo stroller. We were looking for a yoyo with yoyo connect, but this is so expensive. Does anyone have experience with an other small system or 2 individual strollers and a connecter so one person can push both?

We would love to hear your experience,

David & Leanne

Hi Leanne...

There shouldn't be an issue bringing two strollers on your flight, but its best to read your actual Airline's website for information on that ...

Personally, lve never used a "connector" to put between strollers, and it hasn't been a topic on this Forum...although you could always double check by doing a Forum Search, using the Search bar/icon on this page

They seem like a good idea though, and lots are available for sale on the internet

Have you read any Reviews online?

I had to look at pictures of connectors to see what you're talking about. It looks like the connectors connect the strollers side-by-side instead of front and back. If this is correct, they will obviously be too wide to push down the aisle of an airplane. You could, however, throw the connector into your checked baggage and use it for when you arrive. My cousin had twins and said that side-by-side strollers were much more difficult to use because there were many places where they simply didn't fit. She used a front-back stroller.

Whatever you do, do not invest a lot of money in a stroller for travel. We used to travel with a cheap umbrella stroller. Sometimes they'd let us push it down the aisle of the plane and then stow it overhead. Other times they made us check it at the gate. While we never officially lost the stroller, it did continue onto another city once. Fortunately, it was on the trip home. I've also read about people's strollers breaking after being checked.

Also make sure you put an identification tag on the stroller when you check in at the ticket counter so you're not messing with that if they tell you that you need to check it when you get to the gate.

Babystrollers @#3

New account who just joined to Advertise

# 1.....You are ADVERTISING, Self Promoting that Stroller which is not permitted on the Forums.

#2.... The COMMERCIAL URL LINK you leave and Prices are in a FOREIGN Language and FOREIGN CURRENCY on an ENGLISH Language Forum, again violates forum posting guidelines

#3... the OP asked about CONNECTORS for a Double Stroller, NOT A Stroller like you advertise

#4... Theyve likely already travelled by now
