Finding the best portable DVD player to keep passengers entertained on long car journeys will get your holiday off to the best possible start.

Here we review machines of varying budgets, giving you the best advice on which portable DVD player to by for your car.

Viewing quality is important, but buyers also want the best all-round package for in-car use. From the safest car mounts, to a clean, easy set-up, and a DVD player that's simple to remove and store when the car's parked up.

Buyers with more than one child might want players that include two units – which can play the same or individual movies. Then there's older offspring to consider; is the machine compatible with USB- and SD card-driven media? These are the questions we've set out to answer and ensure the holiday fun starts as soon as you get in the car.
