Best travel systemsBy Louis DeNicola, Cheapism.com
Travel systems combine a stroller, a baby seat, and a base that stays put in your car. The best ones are easy to use, keep your child safe, and save you money by combining three necessities into one purchase. Cheapism has researched the most popular inexpensive travel systems and found three top picks that are safe, stylish, and budget-friendly.
All three are compatible with the LATCH system found in all new vehicles, for easy and safe installation of the car seat, and all use a five-point harness to secure a child. Although the seats are suited only for infants who weigh less than 22 or 30 pounds, depending on the make, the strollers can be used until a child reaches 50 pounds. Cheapism's analysis of online reviews generally turned up only minor drawbacks to these budget travel systems, such as storage baskets underneath the strollers that are too small and or hard to access when the stroller seat is fully reclined.
