As a new parent, life becomes a whirlwind of joy, adventure, and, of course, responsibilities! 

Ensuring your baby's comfort, safety, and convenience is of utmost importance, and purchasing all the necessary baby gear can quickly add up. 

However, we’ve got a solution that will not only tick off all the important boxes, but save you money in the process! 

It’s the Gia XP Travel System from Maxi-Cosi! 

This versatile and stylish travel system is a fantastic combination of baby gear staples that will make it easier than ever to travel with your baby!  

What Is a Travel System? 

Simply put, a travel system is a comprehensive transportation solution for your baby, consisting of a stroller and infant car seat (that can be attached to the frame of a stroller). The beauty of a travel system lies in its seamless transition from the car to the stroller, ensuring your little one stays safe and snug (and hopefully asleep!) in their seat without interruptions. 

The Gia XP Travel System includes:  

Mico 30 Car Seat 


  • Suitable from 5 to 30 lbs. or 32" in height (whichever comes first) 
  • Product Dimensions: 29" L x 16" W x 25.5" H 
  • Product Weight: 8.2 lbs. 

The Mico 30 is a feature-heavy, rear-facing car seat that keeps your baby safe and comfy during car rides.  

Suitable for children weighing 5 to 30 lbs. (or up to 32 inches tall), it has an adjustable, 5-point safety harness with padded covers, while the Cozi-Dozi insert provides essential head and neck support for your baby’s developing body. 

Maxi-Cosi outfits the infant seat with self-wicking fabric that not only keeps your baby dry but also works to keep funky smells to a minimum! When it does get grungy, you can remove the seat pad (without unthreading the harness) and toss it in your washing machine for a quick restoration. 

Safety features include Side Impact Protection, an adjustable base with a one-click LATCH system, and belt guides on the shell for installing the seat without the base (ie. a friend’s car, Uber). The Mico 30 also offers a comfortable non-slip grip handle for easy carrying and a multi-position canopy with flip-out visor for maximum sun protection. 

What’s more, travel-loving families will appreciate that it's certified for use on airplanes.

Gia XP Stroller  


  • Suitable for children 6 months and up (birth with infant car seat)
  • Open Dimensions: 43.3" L x 25.2" W x 44.9" H 
  • Folded Dimensions: 14.8" L x 25.2" W x 32.7" H 
  • Stroller Weight: 23.3 lbs. 

The three-wheeled Gia XP stroller is designed for a smooth and enjoyable ride. With nimble maneuverability and all-terrain EVA foam tires, you’ll be able to navigate tight corners and various surfaces with ease. A lockable front swivel wheel also enhances stability on rough terrain so you can seamlessly tackle both smooth and rocky surfaces while in motion. 

A simple fold means you can compact the stroller with just one hand! Multiple reclining positions ensure your little one will be comfortable on your adventures, while the plush fabrics not only add a touch of style to the seat but also ensure added comfort. The Gia’s seat is also removable and machine washable for easy cleaning.  

Parents get their share of features as well, with an adjustable handle, zippered storage pockets, and an under-seat storage basket, so you can keep all your essentials organized and within reach. 

As for safety, shielding your little one from the sun is Maxi-Cosi’s MaxShade UPF 50+ canopy. This extendable canopy is designed with a mesh peek-a-boo window, so you can stay connected with your baby while keeping them cool on warm days.  

Beyond the Basics 

Maxi-Cosi has a few other tricks up its sleeve with this travel system! 

Included in the box is an extra-large, dishwasher-safe cup holder for mom and dad, so you can keep your extra-large coffee (or any other refreshments) close at hand while on the go! 

Also, if you’re a family with a secondary vehicle, you don’t need to keep reinstalling the base. As previously discussed, you can install the Mico 30 without a base. But for superior protection, we’d highly recommend picking up a secondary Mico 30 Infant Car Seat Base!

An Excellent XP 

Maxi-Cosi designed this system to simplify life for busy parents on the go. If this sounds like you, you’ll be happy to know that the Gia XP Travel System shines as a comprehensive solution and is a perfect blend of convenience, safety, and style.

With the car seat's advanced safety features and the stroller's comfort and versatility, you can embark on your parenting journey with confidence every time you leave the house. On top of that, it’s one of the most affordable travel systems on the market, and even costs 50% less than some of its competitors. Now that’s a figure we can get behind!
