We're flying with Thomas Cook later this month and need a stroller for a large 18 month old. So firstly does anyone know off hand if there are size restrictions for pushchairs in the hold? I know I could phone the airline but I'd probably be on the phone for the best part of September so thought I'd try you lovely mums and dads first. Secondly then, and more importantly, what would you recommend? My ds is a big 18 month old and the tiny £20 options are just too small. We'd like something that could recline as we've got an early start at the airport and for all those sleepy moments on holiday. Anything else is a bonus! Thanks in advance x
You can't beat a Maclearen Techno or Techno classic. They fold up small, they recline all the way back. Ours has been to OZ, USA, alot of europe and although battered is still going strong. They can be pricy but you should be able to get a quality 2nd hand one on ebay. Its not included as part of your luggage, you get a tag, wheel it through security etc and in departures you fold it up and literally leave it right outside the plane door. Baggage handlers then sling it in the hold. Hope that helps.
Thanks for that, I left the same message under products and everyone seems to be recommending Mclarens. I think I'll have a good look on eBay as you suggest. What age does it cater up to? It sounds like you've used yours for quite a while
