After testing a lot of products, we have selected the 8 best travel systems for 2018 which are mentioned below. In our experiments, we have found these products most consistent in performance and true value for the money.
Safety 1st Smooth Ride
The Safety 1st Smooth Ride travel system is widely regarded as one of the easiest stroller travel systems to open and ticks all the boxes as far as inclusions go. You truly get the full package here with the onboard35 infant car seat, the stay in car base unit and of course the famous and unique “Smooth Ride” stroller. Not only does this great little travel system offer you everything you could need as a new parent, it does it all at a fantastic price too.
The Smooth Ride Travel system is ideal for… any young family with a newborn. The Onboard35 infant car seat is suitable from 4 up to a healthy 35 pounds and the large and comfortable stroller can comfortably and most importantly, safely carry your little one until they reach 50 pounds.
When we did the full seat reviews, we definitely believe the Safety 1st Smooth Ride travel system is one of the best value travel systems available today. For around the $200 mark there are very few systems that will come with a base unit, an infant car seat and a stroller. Not only is it great value but it is also a great quality little system too. The stroller is super easy to use, comfortable and best of all has the 5 point harness for safety that we love.
