    Im stuck on what I actually want. I've seen many but not come to agreement if I want it.

    What are you all looking for in a Travel System?

    Mines.

    -Price, Quality for money
    -Sturdy Thick Wheels
    -One hand fold
    -Comes with car seat, Raincover, changing bag - last 2 optional

    Any that have stood out for you?

    The one we have had is one hand folding :)

    OrbitBaby G2 :)

    I was blown away by it at a show, but I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea :)

    A bit above ours too :)
    We got it on sale for about £800, which is still WAY above what I wanted to pay. :)

    Its the only thing we've splashed out on :)

    You'll definitely be able to get something decent for that, there are so many good travel systems around :)

    Not a one hand fold, but dead easy to do is the oyster- have you looked at it?

    Loads of different colour options, you can have a britax car seat if you didn't want the oyster one

    Including the britax car seat and isofix base we paid £550 ( off which the pram was around £300)

    Having now used a pram for 15 months, I'm glad I didn't spend a fortune on one, cos it just gets battered about going in and out of the car!

    There's one on sale at mamas and papas at the moment - the black spotted sola package and you get the car seat, all for £359 - I'm trying to persuade oh that it's not too early to buy as sale ends Sunday! X

    Im after something that's not too bulky & nice to push. I use buses frequently when my partner is at work so I don't want something with massive wheels etc. I'm having a bugAboo bee. Xx

    If you go in store you can pay a 25% deposit which guarantees it at that price. If you change your mind you can get your money back. You select a delivery date and just pay off the rest at least 2 weeks before delivery. They were so helpful when we went in. That's what we've done on the zoom system.

    We've put a deposit on mamas and papas zoom. It needs 2 hands to fold down but is lightweight and seems good quality. It was £287.10 in sale for pushchair and carrycot and uses adapters for maxi cost or M&P carseat. I really liked it when I pushed it round the shop!!

    I've ditched the travel system in favour of a Cosatto Yo stroller which is suitable from birth and the matching car seat. Anything with a carrycot and base takes up too much room in my car boot and the Yo! Stroller folds up like a buggy. I know you can't clip the car seat into a base but I'm happy to sacrifice that for the extra space and save over £100 too. Plus this is the one I liked best! xxx
