As you know, we travel as much as possible with our children, Fin and Isabelle, and I am often asked what the travel needs of our family are, especially if we use a Bugaboo travel bag for our Bugaboo Cameleon3. If you follow me through my personal Insta account, you’ll see children (now mostly Isobel) walking around Bugaboo. People are curious if we take the stroller on a flight and if I recommend buying a travel stroller, for Bugaboo or a main stroller that is so expensive.

Do I need a Bugaboo travel bag?

I’m not ashamed to admit that I absolutely love our Bugaboo Camelon3. I admit it was a little spent. Our limited edition was purchased in January 2017 (grey and black tweed, with brown leather handles and blue lining) and cost £850. Simon was totally surprised that a pram could cost more than a used one, but my mother offered to help us buy a pram, so I finally went my own way. I don’t regret it for a second – Cameleon3 is light but spacious, smart and smart, and both children were very happy to travel in it. However, because of the price and the fact that I wanted to keep everything shiny and new, we decided that we also had to invest in a Bugaboo travel bag, and I’m very glad we did. I highly recommend it, too.

Why is a tow bag needed?

I talk about this in my article about our proven children’s travel, but my experience is that the airlines don’t like your stroller as much as you do. Depending on the airports you use, other airlines that store items in your stroller, the mood of the baggage handlers, bad weather and other aspects of flight logistics, there is a high probability that your high-end stroller will be affected. There are two ways to win: by investing in a pram or by choosing to travel in a pram.

Just to be clear, we really do both, depending on the trip. For long journeys (especially when the children travel in the Bugaboo cradle) and for journeys in Great Britain we travel with a Bugaboo (Bugaboo Comfort Transport Bag). When we make short trips through the city or only travel to our destination with hand luggage, we use our GB Pockit cabin size stroller or, now with both children behind us, our Joy Twin stroller.

Is it worth the risk?

When it comes to accessories, it is definitely worth investing in a Bugaboo travel bag or other stroller, especially if you have spent a small amount of money on your main stroller and don’t want it to get damaged. Plus, the resale value of Bugaboo pushchairs is really good, so you definitely want to keep them in perfect condition so you can sell them and use the money for a great holiday!

Bugaboo has two prams: Compact travel bag, £74.95 (only suitable for your small city car, the Bugaboo Bee) and comfortable carrying bag, £124.95. That’s the backpack we’ve got, which I’m looking at. It’s big enough for Bugaboo Cameleon, Bugaboo Fox, Bugaboo Donkey, Bugaboo Buffalo and Bugaboo Runner – now you probably have lots of strollers! It’s definitely worth taking a look at as you’ll find all the accessories available for Bugaboo strollers, such as mosquito nets, sun visors and (important for new moms) cup holders, as well as free shipping and returns for any order that’s cool. And best of all, they always have supplies on site, so if you arrive at the right time, you can put yourself in a bag – and not just a travel bag!

The Bugaboo Stroller Bag is designed to protect the stroller from water damage, dirt and scratches and to store all parts of the Bugaboo stroller together, which is actually very important during the journey. One of the reasons I liked the Bugaboo buggies is that they have super manoeuvrable wheels that can be easily removed for storage and cleaning. Under no circumstances do you want one of these wheels to come loose when you are in the cargo space of an airplane or bus/maritime vehicle. The bag comes with a separate wheelbag, which I recommend you use as it protects the wheels from damage and makes it easier to store the pushchair in the case.

I’m warning you, this bag is big enough! We were so happy to laugh when she arrived, and you might be surprised at how big she is! Don’t worry, it’s much flatter and more compact to fold for storage in warehouses and hotel rooms. The Bugaboo travel bag stands upright and has a handle at the top and side for easy use on the stairs. It also has straps like a backpack, but it’s too big for me to carry it like this! It also has its own wheels, so you don’t have to worry about transporting them! There’s a protective filling in there, but it’s not heavy.

You can buy cheap stroller bags online, but many of them are of inferior quality. I think it’s great that the Bugaboo travel bag (compact carrier bag) is soft but light, which is very important when I travel alone, without Simon!

Does the Bugaboo Comfort carry bag fit in the crib?

I’m really surprised at how many people ask me this question, but if you look at Bugaboo Cameleon with the crib, it’s a real set, so it’s a good question. And, yes, the Bugaboo Comfort carry bag really matches Chameleon with bassnet. It’s a little more complicated than that, but Simon now focuses on the visual arts! The advantage of travelling with a pushchair is that it is wide enough to be used as a cradle (for short periods). I thought both my kids slept much better in the crib. I tried to keep it as long as possible, even though Simon couldn’t wait to move the chair because it was more rational. Even if you do not have a foot clutch, it is much warmer if you drive to a cold destination.

The secret travel bag of the Bugaboo walker!

Okay, it’s a bit daring, but another big advantage of travelling in a pram is that you can hide things in it! Back off, nothing complicated, I assure you! Most airlines allow two items per child to be carried in the cargo hold free of charge, but there is usually a surcharge for extra baggage. So the secret is to save space in your suitcase by using your Bugaboo travel bag to carry more important things – like diapers, towels, compactors, toys and heavier items like blankets or coats. We have used our Bugaboo bag for this on almost every trip and we have never stopped.

Exclusion of liability : We do that sometimes. I’m not suggesting for one second that you do the same thing…

Just a short warning about storing baby food bags, liquid food or breast milk in the airline hold (in a stroller bag or in a suitcase), the unstable temperature change in the airline hold from very hot to very cold, so I would advise against storing liquid milk or baby food in the airline hold.

Bugaboo Comfortable travel bag Bugaboo is the best travel bag for the Chameleon 3.

Yes, the Comfort Carrying Bag is the only official Bugaboo carrying bag suitable for Chameleon and Donkey/Fox/Buffalo etc. There are competitive options, but I like Bugaboo because of the design (it is independent), the wheels, the upholstery, the waterproof material and the elegant appearance. It’s an excellent product.

We also used our Bugaboo travel bag to carry other items and strollers, including the Smart Buggy by Phil and Ted and the Maxi Cosi car seat. Of course this stroller is perfect for Bugaboo, but it is also suitable for other sizes of strollers. He’s tall, but unfortunately he doesn’t fit our double Joey – these are tough times.
