Travel Tips

Stop lugging the stroller, car seat, carriers and other bulky baby gear on to the plane. Thanks to BabyQuip, there’s no need as it makes traveling with your child vastly easier, eliminating the need to pack and travel with all the equipment necessary for flying, driving or sightseeing with an infant in tow.


When using the platform, all you have to do is simply enter your travel dates and destination, look for the gear you need and then reserve it for your trip. A service provider will then meet you at the airport or at your accommodations, so your gear is ready and waiting when you need it.


Use the items for the duration of your trip and then return them, after which all the gear is inspected, cleaned and sanitized for the next family.


BabyQuip allows you to rent a range of gear, even beyond the bulky, difficult-to-travel-with stuff. From toys to tubs, if you need it for a baby, BabyQuip probably has it, with rentals available in more than 1,200 travel destinations, including select international destinations.


Plus, to make the travel process even easier, BabyQuip recently announced expanded partnerships with an array of travel brands, so you can, for example, book baby equipment at the same time you book a rental car with AutoRentals.


Love the BabyQuip mission? The company currently welcomes investors via an equity crowdfunding campaign on Start Engine.
