Travel systems under £500
Buying for your new arrival is exciting and choosing a pram or pushchair is a special pregnancy milestone. The only problem is, when you add together everything you need for your new baby the sums can be a little eye-watering! The good news is, there are travel systems available to suit a range of budgets, so you can find one that’s right for you, however much you have to spend.
How much should you pay for your pram?
Everyone will have a different amount in mind about how much to pay for their baby’s travel system. Really, it’s less about how much you should pay and more about being sure of your budget and working out what you need your pram to do. We stock travel systems for all budgets, and you can look both online and in store for prams that fit your criteria.
The important thing is thinking carefully about what you need from your travel system -- whether that’s a certain feature or style -- and doing your homework so you can easily find out if there’s a pram you need at a price you are happy to pay.
What are the best affordable travel systems?
Every pram that is made goes through a design and testing process to ensure it’s safe to sell. So rest assured that, however much you pay for your travel system, it will be safe for your little one.
A lot of what separates budget travel systems from premium designs are the features. For example, how compactly they fold, their choice of finish and colour, whether they can be converted into a double, and more besides. A budget pram can still be high in quality, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the following buys that offer you an excellent travel system for your baby.

Ways to pay for your travel system
When you purchase your travel system, you have the option to pay for it upfront or spread the cost, interest free. This can be helpful as it allows you to pay in manageable installments without increasing the total amount of money that you pay.

Other ways to save money on your travel system
Buying what you need for your baby in a bundle is another great way to save money. The travel systems we’ve featured today all offer impressive packages, and many other brands of pushchairs provide similar bundles that save you both money and hassle.
It’s also worth keeping an eye out for sales or weekend and Bank Holiday specials, where you can often save yourself an additional 10% off the listed price. This can either save you further money, or open up more options for travel systems that may have previously been out of your price range.
