    Default Which pram to take interstate on plane?

    I have a Combi Urban Walker and a Bugaboo Bee Plus... not sure which to take.. dh thinks the Combi cos if it gets damaged or anything, it's still a cheaper pram than the Bug getting damaged.. it would be going on a plane from Brisbane. He also thinks in the summertime the big shade on the Combi is better.. thoughts?

    I always worry about taking my pram on plane trips so we hire one at the other end. It's usually sitting waiting for us at our hotel when we get there. That way we get a 3 wheeler with plenty of space to carry stuff underneath and a decent sun shade. We usually hire through Hire For Baby.

    We've taken our pram overseas a few times & it doesn't even have a scratch on it. They usually mark it 'fragile' & at the baggage claims is pulled aside with all the other fragile items (doesn't go around the carousel with luggage). I know you can hire them at resorts, but I just find it so much easier at the airport etc with my own pram.
