How a growing family can find the best double stroller for travel (2022 ed.)

best stroller for air travel

Finding the best double stroller for travel that also fits through most doorways in different countries can take so much time out of a parent who is already busy with raising more than one young child. To help you on your search for a travel double stroller, Bébé Voyage took the guesswork out of you. Here are our top picks for the best double stroller for travel.

Some are side-by-side double strollers. Other double strollers stack an additional child’s seat on a standard width frame, not adding to the width of the stroller. And there are those that you can attach a ride-on board to so that an older toddler can stand on it. A great double stroller means different things to each traveling family.

Also, be mindful that each airline has its own weight and size restrictions for gate-checking or luggage-checking a stroller. So be sure to check out our quick comparison chart at the bottom of the article which gives you the weight and folded dimensions of each travel double stroller included here.

Bugaboo Donkey 5 Double stroller

From Single to Best Double Stroller for Travel

Bugaboo Donkey 5 Complete Twin Stroller/ Single-to-Double Stroller

Bugaboo Donkey 5 in double configuration is easy to maneuver and you can steer it with one hand. Already own a Donkey Mono? With a Donkey 5 Duo Extension Set, turn any Donkey into a double stroller for two kids of different ages. If you have twins, one more Donkey 5 Bassinet Fabric Complete set is available for purchase separately. In either case, the Donkey’s large puncture-proof wheels are ready for your adventures and a smooth ride for your kids on all surfaces.

  • Three clicks convert Mono to Double
  • Suitable for kids zero months to four years
  • Fits through most standard doorways

Aurija Petra Glibbery, an interior designer at Oysters & Sippy Cups and mom to twins who has traveled with both a Bugaboo Donkey and UpperBaby G-link says, she “looooved” the Donkey. “[I] bought a Bugaboo Donkey and we had four trips overseas in three months,” says Petra Glibbery. “So easy to stroll through the airports with the twins. Downside — it takes a little bit longer to fold at the gate, but truly, with all the convenience traveling with the twins, I didn’t care.”

Peg Perego Ypsi Single to Double Travel Stroller

Peg Perego YPSI Single to Double Stroller

Convert a Peg Perego YPSI from a single stroller to double stroller with the YPSI double adapters and companion seat. The YPSI is designed for easier pushing and maneuvering so it’s worth considering as a travel double stroller for hauling two kids around. Because the two kids will not be side by side in a YPSI, you can have peace of mind that this double will fit through smaller doorways.

  • Double stroller with the width of a single stroller
  • Suitable for newborns to 50 lbs
  • 360-degree agility with ball bearings and suspension


best double stroller for travel: babyzen yoyo2 connect can be disconnected and folded down to fit in overhead bins

Babyzen YOYO2 Connect 6+ Double

The BabyZen YOYO2 offers multiple options for going from a single stroller to a double: side-by-side, tandem, and attachable ride-on board.
Putting together two YOYO side-by-side, using 2-in-1 Dual Connectors will convert them into a double stroller. A newer design by Babyzen connects two YOYO2 single strollers like a tandem, one in front of the other, making the travel double stroller the first to be accepted as carry-on luggage by airlines.
If you own a YOYO or YOYO2, your toddler can ride on the attachable YOYO+ Board, while the younger child is seated in the stroller.

  • Can be dismounted and fit in overhead compartments
  • Double stroller with the width of an opened single stroller
  • Convenient for public transportation



Mockingbird Single-To-Double

Wouldn’t it be great to never have to deal with a flat on one of your stroller wheels, especially with up to 90 pounds ( kg) combined weight of two children? Rely on a Mockingbird Single-To-Double with never-flat wheels and other features that make this stroller a good choice for safe and smooth rides, such as a one-step footbrake and rotating handlebar that accommodate adults of different heights.

  • Takes half-minute to attach the second seat
  • 18+ configurations with 2nd Seat Kit
  • Use for newborns with Mockingbird Car Seat Adapter

It’s one thing if not every traveling family is happy about the price tag, weight, or size of a particular travel double stroller. It’s another thing when traveling families express their frustrations with design flaws, missing parts, and warranty issues that they encountered as owners of certain double strollers. This is why we shortlist these six strollers, based on users’ positive feedback and experiences, including the Bugaboo Donkey 5 that Club Bébé Voyage members say they have used during trips by plane.
