This article will go over the very best travel infant car seats for babies and toddlers with a specific focus being on airplane travel and long road trips! Some of the factors that we took into consideration were price, weight, durability and size. This list will go in no particular order.

Many if not all of these carseats can be compatible with our round up of the best travel strollers (adapters may be required).

NOTE- The infant car seats on this list are FAA approved and can be used without a base to proper function when you’re traveling. If you would like to fly with your base, you need to make sure the base is FAA approved, some are not. Additionally, please check with the airline on board if you would like to use your base in flight as rules vary.

With Briggs, I left my base secured in my car at home and when we would travel by plane, I would leave it at home as that infant car seat can function without the base.
