First holiday abroad with baby - pushchair?

Postby msmiller36 » Sat Nov 14, 2009 5:14 am

Hi
In september we are going aborad for the first time with the baby. Well actually first time with kids. 4 adults, 2 toddlers and a 4 month old.
We've booked our flights and reserved our seats (6 plus babe in arms) I'm just wondering what the deal is with pushchairs?
Do you need to pre book them with the airline? Do they go in the cabin or hold? are they included or on top of your baggage allowance?
I'm looking at getting a second hand lightweight stroller, but my sister is talking about taking the double buggy?

Any advice much appreciated.

Hi,

It will very much depend on the airline that you are flying with. Some might just treat the buggy as an extra bag (and thuis charge for that amount), while others might add extra. What you should NOT do is just turn up at the airport with the buggy without telling the airline. So, there should be a phone number on your flight reservation. Call that number, and explain the situation to them.
