Buying double air beds: which features are important?

Inflation time

You don’t want to buy an air bed that takes absolutely ages to blow up, so check to see what the brand’s claim are on inflation time. Some will go from out of the box to fully inflated in less than five minutes, which is one less thing for you to worry about.

Puncture resistant

Make sure you’re buying an air bed that’s made of sturdy stuff. This is particularly important if the bed is going to be used regularly, or if you own a kitty that needs its claws trimmed. When shopping for an air bed, pay attention to details on what the bed is made from, and how many layers of protection it offers on the top.

Weight limit

Every air bed will have a claimed weight limit, so make sure you’re not overloading the mattress for safety reasons.

Are double air beds expensive?

Our pricing research suggests that typical spend for a double air bed lands between £50 and £100. If you’re willing to shop through a local auction service (Facebook Marketplace, for example) you could find one for even cheaper. Air beds that cost more than £100 are usually larger, quicker to inflate and more durable than cheaper alternatives.
