As a mother of twins I am wondering which travel cot to buy. I do not wish to buy 2 as this will take up a lot of space. Does anyone have any ideas.

You'll need two, sorry.
Ours went in 2 Moses baskets the first few times we travelled, then shared the Arms Reach co sleeper at home so we could use that as a travel cot, but they quickly got too big to shar that and mine were tiny tiddlers. They'll be using travel cots for ages, have a look on eBay or local Facebook sales sites.

How often are you going to be going away?
We have triplets and when they were little all 3 used to fit in one cot if they slept widthways. You can buy a cot separator too if they aren't used to being together.
If you're going to be going away a lot then you will have to buy 2, but if you're planning to go away soon then you can get away with 1 for a few months.
What buggy do you have? If you have one with carrycots, then depending on the mattress, they could sleep in there - obviously wouldn't be suitable for more than a few nights though. You can buy carrycot mattress enhancers though, to make them nicer.
Mothercare sell these but again, they wouldn't last long

How old are they op ?
I agree with pp, you will probably need 2.

We had two. You could get away with them sleeping together when they're really tiny but as soon as they start wriggling around they'll wake each other up.

When are you going to be using them?

Ours shared a travel cot until DS could roll at about 5 months and then I found him on top of his sister, so now we have two!
