We are going abroad in a few weeks with our 9mo old, we are searching for a travel stroller but no idea where to start! Ideally want one that we can take on the plane as hand luggage ￼ the Babyzen yoyo keeps popping up but is it really worth the money??

I’d go for the Ergobaby Metro over the Yo-yo. The Metro has the bigger hood, better storage basket and a near lie-flat feature. The yo-yo only reclines to a max of 145 degrees. The Metro has larger wheels. Small wheels are useless on the beach. I also find that the straps are less fiddly on the Metro, but I suppose it’s what you’re used to. The yo-yo has more optional extras and there really is an accessory for every eventuality and need. Size and weight wise, they’re almost identical and fold neatly with one hand.

I'd recommend the Silver Cross Pop or Reflex. Our first holiday abroad with our then one year old, we got the pop and it was great. That was 6 years ago and the Pop has been used for multiple grandchildren at my parents. My toddler is in the Reflex which has lasted a long time too. The seats are nice and big but easy to put down and take up to the door on the plane.

I just got the silver cross jet, exactly for this purpose and for our 8 month old. It’s great if a little £

Depends on whether you want to use it beyond travel.
If you don’t there is a new Silvercross Jet. If you do plan to use it a lot more, get the YoYo.
I recently bought the yo-yo after having the awful awful awful Bugaboo Ant. It’s really comfortable for my DD.

Silver Cross Clic is great. You can take it as hand luggage.

Silver Cross Clic also a lot cheaper than yoyos. Recently went abroad with it and it’s so great at an airport and on trains. You can open and close it with one hand and it’s super light.

we've got the Mamas and Papas 'Airo'. Hand luggage size, big hood, lies flat, good on gravel, 5 click harness is much easier then the YoYo. That said we got it 2nd hand for £80 and its been worth it. Don't think I'd pay the full £400 for it though

A basic reclining umbrella buggy is perfect for travel, with a sun shade ideally. Recline makes it easier for naps and evenings, they can nap whilst you explore/sunbathe/eat/party (you might laugh but mine slept through a memorable jazz evening in San Francisco, one now sings in a jazz quartet!) a had a graco which I think is sold as Jolie now, very basic but did the job. Oh and top tip, get one that goes to a decent weight range as they are useful for preschool age on holidays and at theme parks even if you don't use them day to day.
Not sure if it's still the case but I could take my double graco one onboard ba long haul flights and they stowed it in the first class wardrobe. I was in pleb class of course
