WELCOME TO OUR COMMUNITY
OF GLOBETROTTING PARENTS JUST LIKE YOU
Bébé Voyage started out and still is, at its heart, a worldwide community of parents supporting each other through family travel. Look. We all love the idea of traveling, but a lot of parents think twice about traveling when they have young children. We get it, airports and airlines tend to not do much to make the experience easier on us. On top of it, we love traveling abroad, but with our baby? That might all seem a bit daunting, at first. This is why our community is so valuable. We are now over 13,000 parents who travel and live all over the world who will support you through your next voyage with bébé!

Connecting Globetrotting Parents
We have an amazing community of actively traveling parents.
Bébé Voyage Cofounders and Childhood Friends Juliet Perrachon and Marianne Perez De Fransius
Bébé Voyage would not be where it is today without its community of globetrotting parents. When in early 2015 Marianne first asked Juliet if she wanted to write a book to help parents who travel with babies, Juliet liked the idea of providing resources for this underserved group of people but insisted that they start an online community.
So Marianne and Juliet put together a list of 120 friends and acquaintances who had babies and who they assumed traveled or wanted to travel with them. Before inviting everyone into the Facebook group, they brainstormed a list of “conversation starters”:
Not only that, but they were requesting information and getting relevant responses about issues that had never occurred to Marianne and Juliet or that they simply didn’t know anything about.
Bébé Voyage prides itself on the high quality we demand of ourselves. That’s why we’re always looking for the best travel gear to hopefully make our travels a little bit smoother. Thankfully, Team Bébé Voyage doesn’t have to do it all on our own and we have our amazing community dispersed throughout the world constantly on the lookout for the latest products and innovations in the family and baby travel industry as well as novel uses for existing products.
Another pleasant surprise was the level of genuine support and kindness that exists within Club Bébé Voyage. They had seen online parenting communities get nasty because of people who were self-righteous about the “right” way to raise children. And with a community which is intentionally global, multicultural and multilingual, the potential for misunderstandings and differences of opinion are great. Even when heated topics come up, like vaccines or (not using) a travel car seat, the attitude is one of respect and curiosity.

Participants have responded along the lines of “This is what the norm is in my country/ culture/ family, but I understand that things are different elsewhere. What is it like for you?”
18,000+ Bébé Voyage Club Members Since 2015
In 4 years, with now over 13,500 people in the group, the fact that we can count on our fingers how many times we’ve had to intervene because the conversation got too heated or became inappropriate speaks volumes for the true sense of community we’ve created for parents who travel with kids.
The fact that participants repeatedly tell us this is one of their favorite groups and report back that they found the tips for traveling with kids helpful keeps us energized about Bébé Voyage.
Because the Club Bébé Voyage participants have been so eager to share their experiences about traveling with a baby, our website is an opportunity for our most enthusiastic fans to engage even more. Some have stepped up as ambassadors and contributed extensively to our travel guides.
