Travelmate Product Comparison

The Travelmate Product Family has grown and although they are all designed to transport your child in their car seat they are all different. The original Travelmate model QRKIDZ was designed to convert your car seat in to an airport stroller. Every Travelmate product serves that purpose but some can also be used as a compact stroller for vacations, quick trips to the store or other errands when you do not want to bring your bulky baby stroller. Below are some charts that will help you decide which Travelmate is best for your needs.

If you have any questions regarding the Travelmates please visit our customer service page or contact us directly.

QRKIDZ vs Mini Travelmate - Comparison Chart
The main difference between the Mini Travelmate and the original QRKIDZ Travelmate is that we eliminated the large plastic plate and changed the wheels to create a more compact & lightweight. The Mini Travelmate now has a smaller cross plate where the quick-release ratchet strap attaches, smaller diameter dual wheel system and a fold-down support bar. Both can also be uses as a travel stroller at your destination but is not intended to replace your everyday stroller.
