What they say: The new Britax Holiday Double is the lightest and most compact double buggy in Britax Römer’s growing pushchair range. Only 76cm wide and suitable for children from six months – three years of age (15kg).
The Britax Holiday Double is the perfect solution for travelling with two young children. Weighing just nine kilograms, it offers complete freedom thanks to the comfortable and convenient carry straps that can go over the shoulder or be worn similar to a backpack, allowing for mum and dad to chase after their youngsters with ease.
Easy and quick folding features with an automatic fold lock, ensuring that the Holiday Double stays in a neat and compact position until it’s ready for its next outing. The buggy stands conveniently on its wheels when folded; keeping fabrics off the ground meaning they stay clean for longer. It also comes with a five-point safety harness which can easily be adjusted to the height of a growing child, ensuring children are travelling in both safety and comfort. Ventilation mesh surrounds both sides of the seats and above the head, plus a canopy with a UPF of 50+ keeps children protected from the elements.
For additional comfort the pushchair comes with a foot support for young travellers and swivel front wheels, making it a delight to push. The buggy also features puncture-free tyres, meaning parents can have peace of mind that no fun adventure will ever be unnecessarily cut short. The reclining backrest ensures a relaxed sleeping position for children and large baskets underneath both seats with a total weight capacity of eight kilograms allows for plenty of space for those travel essentials.

“My first impressions of the stroller was where is the rest of it – I honesty could not believe how compact it folds up. I have a 21 month old and a small three year old and this stroller is a dream to push with them both. It does not feel heavy at all and steers around corners well – I was initially apprehensive as I thought my three year old would weigh the stroller down but I hardly notice they are both in there. The pads on the straps are lovely and big and very comfortable for my children – unlike previous stroller straps that have rubbed on their necks.
It is very easy to put down using the two buttons on the handles and easy to put back up again. It is the perfect height for me and I can easily see both children whilst pushing the stroller. It has two decent sized baskets for the size of the stroller, which I tend to look for when purchasing a stroller. The hoods cover the children nicely – however the stroller does not come with a rain cover but there is an option to purchase one separately if needed.
The only downside I would see in this stroller is that there isn’t an option for the seats to fully recline if you wanted your children to sleep. However this has not been an issue for us as my children don’t tend to sleep whilst out and about.
The stroller is perfect for holidays! I wish we had had it last year when we were aboard as it would have made our lives a lot easier! The stroller has a handy strap so you can wear it as a backpack – which I think is just genius and isn’t to heavy for me to carry whilst holding my youngest as well. It is also the perfect size to fit into a car boot once all your luggage is packed for holiday as it can easily fit into any gaps or even the footwell of the car.
Overall I would highly recommend this stroller to other parents wanting a light weight, very compact, hassle free double to take on holidays, or even just nipping to the shops or leaving at the grandparents house. It retails at £200 which may seem expensive – however it is very well made, better than some other cheaper strollers on the market and is well worth the price tag if you want a stroller that will last your children’s younger years – I just wish I found it sooner!”
