Can you recommend one? Cheap as chips but adequate, and suitable for 6mths plus. Ideally compact as will be stored at my parents' house.
Thanks!

We bought this: www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001JJCLHG/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B002L3TSRK&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=0B46SGJBSCJAYX90F57M

It was great! Small, light, easy to manoeuvre, to put up and down. Only drawbacks, not a very good sunshade, and baby didn't sleep brilliantly in it, I think because it doesn't recline fully. But he slept better at night because of his shorter naps! Otherwise, it was great and now I'm back to my 'regular' pram, I miss it! I've previously used a MacClaren for holidays, but preferred this.

Good luck finding your perfect one!

I bought a 'buggy' from tesco for 12 quid to use on holiday and it was great. Threw it away afterwards but it didn't really matter at that price

How about this one

Doesn't look too bad for £15!

I bought a second hand Ziko Frankie on ebay for £25. Not the best pushchair in the world but then I didn't care if it got mangled on the plane as it was a cheap one. The most important thing for us what that DD could nap in it so wanted it suitable from birth or 3 months even though she's 10 months. My friend took a zapp on holiday when her DD was 9 months and said it wasn't good at all because she couldn't nap well in it.

Also definitely, definitely take a parasol if you're going somewhere hot. It was absolutely invaluable for us, and it fitted in the suitcase ok.

i swear by mothercare jives to take on holiday, good basic stroller. i dont need to buy one this year as have a cybex onyx already for dd2 who will be 2 in september.
but when buying for the other children and wanting something i wasnt worried about getting scratched etc, then the jive was adequate. it does have a small recline for naps. fine for a toddler and upwards.
