Those so-called "fighters" we so big there seemed to be no ship besides the Galaxy capable of carrying them and yet they were used.
In fact the fighters were already among the fleets when they left the starbases.
They were not tugged away for travel.
So they appearently don't need a larger ship to carry them.
Also, those "fighters" are hughe, larger than Runabout that we know have an operation range of weeks.

In addition we know it's possible for craft even without warp drive to rid inside the warpfield of one that does.
So just cluster them around larger ships and hitch a ride without consuming any fuel.
Carriers are not really needed.
