Considerations for the best Double Stroller for Europe

Best Double Stroller for Disney

We are very lucky to have traveled to many places around the world with our toddler and baby and what we have found, is that despite what some people say there is no one travel stroller that works perfectly in location around the world.

When considering what the best double stroller for Europe is there are a few things that you will want to take into consideration such as 

  • size
  • robustness
  • wheels 
  • storage. 

Size

While we recommend having a robust double stroller for Europe, you really need to consider the size of a stroller especially if you are staying in a hotel with baby

One of the things to remember when choosing your accommodation in Europe is that hotel rooms tend to be much smaller in European cities than their US counterparts.

So remember if you are traveling with lots of luggage, pack and plays and car seats for two children and have a large and not compact double stroller then you may find yourself running out of space in your hotel room pretty quickly. 

For tips on picking toddler and baby friendly hotel rooms check out this post. 

Also you will find in many European countries, outside of the UK especially that double strollers can be tricky on public transport. 

On many European buses you will be required to fold down your stroller to get on the bus and other public transit systems, i.e. the London Underground or Metro in cities such as Amsterdam, will have inconsistent availability of lifts. This can be tricky when travel with any stroller but is especially tricky with a large double stroller. 

For more information on using strollers in certain cities and countries check out our related guides:

Robustness

We have said before there is no one double stroller that can work for every situation perfectly. 

For instance if you are looking for the best stroller for cruise ship travel you want something that is lightweight and collapsible into a very small space. While using a stroller in Japan’s ancient cities you will want something that has big wheels and that is robust enough to manage cobbles.

Some of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations are very ancient and as such you will find that there are lots of uneven walkways and cobbled stones. Therefore while you want something that can collapse down easily, you also need to make sure that you have a double stroller that has wheels that can cope with cobbles and uneven terrains well. 

Copes with multiple terrains

The other thing to remember about Europe is that your travels don’t necessarily have to be all in cities. There are some great beaches to visit in Europe with kids as well as many countryside hikes especially in locations such as Switzerland. 

Therefore if your European itinerary with kids covers cities, beaches and countryside be sure to check that you have a stroller that can deal with multiple terrains. 

Easy to Fold

One of the key things for a stroller in Europe is to make sure it is easy to fold down especially if you plan to use on public transportation such as the buses, Metro and trains. In many places in Europe children cannot remain in the stroller on a bus and you will need to fold it down.

Be sure to pick one that is easy to collapse and practice doing it in a low stress environment so you are prepared for being asked to do this in public. 

Individually reclining seats

If you are using a double stroller you will want to make sure each seat reclines on its own. If you are traveling to Europe from the US then you may find your baby or toddler suffering from jet lag. Having a seat that reclines on its own will help a child suffering from jet lag nap on their own schedule. 

That way each child can nap on their own schedule. 

Has a Sun Shade

Depending on what part of Europe you are traveling to and the season you are traveling in, you may need a good sun shade. So if you are traveling to Italy with a toddler or somewhere like Greece or Spain in the summer be sure to have a large sun shade on your stroller. 

Has a Rain Cover

Although we love living in Europe, and lived have many different places in Europe, the one downside is that you can get rain during any season. For this reason no matter the time of year you are travel to Europe be sure you have a good rain cover for your stroller. 

OPTIONAL ADDITIONAL – Standing platform

Not all double strollers have a stand option. If you want to have this option be sure to check that it is offered on your stroller of choice.

This stroller is really only an option for our US readers as this is not available in Europe currently. However it is a great choice for traveling to Europe. 

It is one of the lightest double strollers for travel weighing in at only 19lb.

It has individually reclining seats but doesn’t go flat, so if this is important to you you may want to consider a different stroller on the list. 

This stroller also has an amazing canopy so this is great for those traveling in Summer or going to Southern Europe.

While we love this Mountain Buggy Nano Duo however it does have some drawbacks which mean it is doesn’t have the longest shelf life. The stroller seats have a relatively low weight test and the seats are also narrow compared to others on this list. 

If you have older children or larger kids then this might not be the best pick for them.

Joovy is one of the go to brands for double strollers on the market especially those who are traveling with a baby and a toddler rather than twins of the same age. 

Unlike the other double strollers on this list the seat configuration is one in front of the other rather than side by side seat arrangement.

e front seat is for the younger children – from six months to 2.5 years while the rear bench seat and standing platform goes from 2.5years until the child meets the weigh of 45 pounds. 

I will admit this isn’t my favorite stroller on the list as my little ones don’t like being in the behind seat however if your child doesn’t mind this it may be a perfect choice for you as it is narrower for those tight buildings you find in Europe. 

But what I do like about this is that children can stand on the back platform which my kids love.
