Traveling with children isn’t the easiest task in the world, especially if they’re infants and or in the terrible twos of toddlerhood. But there’s one product that will help the experience go much more smoothly: a travel stroller.

This kind of stroller is designed to be extra-light and folds up into a compact size to make it convenient to store in plane carry-on compartments, car trunks and even the overhead racks of a train. Plus, its non-bulky design makes it way easier and less of a hassle to navigate through crowded airports, transit stations and even theme parks. These strollers often have other useful features, including storage space for diapers, bottles and other small items, and an overhead canopy for sun protection.

If you want to take some of the stress your next family trip, you’re in luck. We rounded up a couple of the highest-rated travel strollers you can get on Amazon.

Promising review: "I have 3 kids and probably way too many strollers (according to my husband haha)… but I felt like I needed an easy travel stroller while juggling all these kids and our stuff. I didn’t expect to love this stroller as much as I do! It’s light, compact and so easy to use (I even won over the hubby’s approval)! I think I’ll even use this for drop/pick ups when school starts back up, due to the ease of use with this stroller. Can’t say enough good things about this stroller and how it is so much more than just a travel stroller!" — Sarah Danielsen

Promising review: "Literally my favorite baby purchase to date. I was looking for something that folds up super small but has a decent size sunshade and reclines a little. This bad boy has all that plus it glides like a DREAM. I mean, push it with one hand all day kind of smooth. It folds easily, need both hands to push the buttons but the fold literally takes 1 second. And it folds correctly every time. We attached a carrying strap to the side of it and taking it everywhere is so easy. Highly recommend for travel, definitely works as a carry on." — Dee

Promising review: "We’ve used travel strollers before but we chose this one as most travel strollers need babies to be 6 months before using. This stroller was perfect for our 4 month old with a great recline and support for someone who can’t quite sit up on their own yet. If you’re debating, just choose this one. Bonus points for fitting under the seat on smaller planes." — Brian Idehen

Bought for a vacation and it folds easily, lays pretty flat considering there’s a tray and cup holders, and maneuvered well in small spaces and uneven pavement. Large storage space underneath. Held a Kavu shoulder bag and multiple small shopping bags as well. My son is a large 17 month old and he was well supported, shaded, and has a good amount of room to grow. This was a great purchase!" — Amazon customer
