Research Strategy

To provide a list of five of the top travel car seats in 2021, we combed through top travel car seat lists from popular portals like VeryWellFamily, Wanderlust Storytellers, BabyList, Trip Savvy, Good House Keeping and BabyCenter. Other than the precompiled lists, we also relied on user ratings for the selected car seats on retail portals like Walmart. The lists included some of the car seats that were already included in the attached spreadsheet; we have included additional options from each of these pre-compiled lists. We focused on options that were common across these lists. We were able to include five of the top travel car seat options for the year 2021, and we have presented our findings in the attached spreadsheet.
