During the 9 months of pregnancy most parents spend weeks, if not months, researching which pram to get. Prams are an expensive purchase and most of us use our pram quite a lot for a number of years. If you are anything like me you are pretty precious about your pram and the way you transport and store it, so when it comes to airtravel it can be hard to hand your beautiful ride over to the airport staff. At phil&teds they understand that people care about their pram and want to protect it during travel, which is why they designed the Universal Travel Bag:
The phil&teds Universal Travel Bag (RRP $100) is full of clever features to help make your trip easier, more comfortable and give you peace of mind. The strong polyester fabric is tough, hard wearing and built to withstand the (often) rough treatment on airplanes and airports. At the same time the padded lining provides your precious cargo with a soft cushioned ride.
While the Universal Travel Bag is lightweight (less than 2kg) and compact when not in use, it is surprisingly large when it counts. You wouldn’t guess it but it ‘grows’ to a very generous 106 x 64 x 34cm! This means it is the ideal size for any phil&teds pram or car seat (as well as most other brands) with plenty of room left for other bits and pieces that you want to take on your trip. The adjustable sizing and heavy duty velcro closures allow for a nice, snug fit at any time so your luggage is not flopping around inside.
You can cart your Universal Travel Bag around airports, car parks and train stations with ease thanks to the sturdy wheels and if you need/want to carry it you can use the handy shoulder strap. The bag is available in a selection of stylish colours, from timeless and classic to bright and eye catching (easy to spot on the airport conveyor belt). The exclusive colour range is only available in the phil&teds Online Store.
We have taken our children overseas two times and we tend to do plenty of walking while on holiday, I would have loved to have our comfortable and very reliable pram with us on our trips but I have always been worried about it getting damaged during transport. It looks like I might have to get one of these fabulous Pram Travel Bags to take along on our next adventure, they look fantastic!
