Double pushchairs for small budgets

Having a baby can be expensive, and when you have two, it can feel like money just evaporates. A buggy is one thing it’s easy to spend many hundreds or even thousands of pounds on, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Big name pushchair brands – such as Maclaren and Britax– do offer value priced twin and tandem options, for those with twins or a baby and toddler.

You also need to know whether a twin or tandem model will be best for you. Our double buggy buyer’s guide and advice for buying secondhand buggies safely are must-reads, too.

1. The Red Kite Push Me Twini, £199.99

This twin buggy is fantastic value for money. It is lightweight, easy to push – our reviewer said it was “effortless”.

It has some great features that you would expect from pricier doubles, such as individually reclining back rests and adjustable leg rests, included rain covers and foot muffs and a large basket. This is a great value option.

2. Britax Holiday double, £200

The double version of the lightweight Birtax Holiday is a fantastic budget option for those after a side-by-side stroller ideal for travel.

Suitable from 6 months, it is very lightweight for a double at just 9kg, and folds down surprisingly small – its folded dimensions are an impressive 50x60x28cm. It is also easy to handle and has a handy carry strap to pick up and go.

This twin stroller offers seats that recline independently to near flat. It has a two-hand umbrella fold and is freestanding when folded, which makes storage much easier.

At just over 13kg it is a manageable weight. It also features lockable front wheels and front wheel suspension as well as generous shopping baskets.

The Aire Twin from UK brand Joie is packed full of features, all weighing just under 12kg. It has individually reclining seats that can be near flat, has two-colour reversible seat liners, adjustable hoods and leg supports, a super large shopping basket, and a slimline, standalone fold.

5. Joie Evalite Duo, £250

The Joie Evalite Duo is a lightweight tandem pushchair that has a great one-handed fold, making it super easy to quickly store away.

It is great for those who need an easy to use duo for trips to the park or walks. Its length makes it a bit awkward in tight spots, so this is one who likes striding out outdoors.

6. Britax B Agile Double, £345

The B Agile Double’s RRP is over our budget, but you can currently easily get it for under £250 at various retailers, so we thought it worth including this fantastic twin stroller.

It has a great, easy fold, and can be used as a travel system with extra adaptors and the Britax Baby-Safe Car Seat, which is a good option for a growing family. It has a near-flat, multi recline and its built-in suspension provides a smooth ride.

You can buy the Britax B Agile Double at BuggyBaby.co.uk

7. Maclaren Twin Techno, £299.99

It’s at the top end of our price range here, but this compact and easy-to-fold twin buggy is worth it. Both seats of the Twin Techno are suitable from birth, so it’s ideal for twins. On the other hand, the independent seat recline and separate hoods and footmuffs mean it can work for siblings of different ages.

8. Maclaren Twin Triumph, £165

The Maclaren Twin Triumph is a double buggy, but it still boasts the one-handed umbrella fold that made Maclaren’s single pushchairs so popular. Compact and suitable for twins or siblings, the Twin Triumph weighs a tiny (for a twin) 10.6kg.

9. Graco Stadium Duo, £149.99

The Stadium Duo is a good all-rounder tandem buggy. It’s easy to fold and this can be managed with one hand after some practice. One seat is suitable from birth (the other from 6 months), so this is best for siblings of different ages. You can convert the buggy into to a travel system for one of your two, if you purchase a compatible Graco car seat.
