What is travel mode on Bumble?

In a nutshell, it is Bumble’s answer to Tinder's passport. Yes! Bumble finally caved into the user demand and provided a similar feature to the much-loved Tinder passport. The Bumble travel mode lets premium users change their location up to seven days to a different location than where they are physically present.

The profile displays a ‘traveler’ icon, notifying other bumble users that you are there for a short stay. The rest of the bumble features and how you use the Bumble app remain the same.

When you enable the travel mode, Bumble drops you off in the center of the city you’ve chosen. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to set an exact location at the moment.

PS: Make sure that you have a premium subscription; otherwise, you won’t be able to use Bumble travel mode. If you don’t have a premium subscription, you can purchase it anytime.

  2. Scroll down to location settings and tap on ‘Travel to….’

  1. Select a premium plan according to your needs.
  2. After a successful purchase, you will be able to use the travel mode on the Bumble app.

The only caveat using Bumble’s travel feature is that your location will be shown in the center of the city you select, and you won’t be able to select an exact location. However, that is not a cause to worry. You can still set the ‘distance’ filter to increase your visibility and ‘match’ probability.

bumble travel mode vs tinder passport which is better

Bumble travel mode vs. Tinder passport: Which is better?

Tinder get more matches

Bumble travel mode and Tinder passport are pretty similar.

They both let you change your location and swipe profiles in a city where you are currently not. There is only one major difference between the two. Tinder passport lets you change cities as many times as you want. Bumble travel mode, on the other hand, allows you to change location only during seven days of travel mode.

Tinder, being the most popular between the two, will get you more visibility, likes, and matches naturally. That being said, it doesn’t hurt to try out Bumble’s counterpart to Tinder passport. You don’t know where you might end up lucky!

is the travel mode feature worth it

Is the Travel Mode feature Worth it?

There is no clear answer to this. It depends on how you use the feature.

Some users may find and line up meetings with friends and dates but won’t be able to find the time for the same.

For such users, the travel mode feature will seem useless.

However, other bumble app users might have plenty of time at hand and can use it to swipe on potential matches, chat, and meet them after they have arrived at the location.

For them, it's a banger! A boring business trip becomes spicier with the meeting of a new date or friends.

So, it all depends on how you leverage the feature. The final call is yours.

Bumble travel mode free!

We have your back covered. No, you can't really get bumble travel for free. But YES there is a way to get similar feature!

You just need to mess with your GP location. It can be tricky on phones nowadays, but way easier on computer!

Actually, you can fake your gps location using your browser only!

However careful! If the app catches you, you are likely to be sanctionned. Shadowban and other things are not fun!

is it safe to use

Is it safe to use?

Yes, the feature is safe to use, similar to how safe the app is in general. The feature does nothing extraordinary; it just allows you to match with new people in advance. Just follow safe dating and meeting practices, and there’s nothing to worry about.

other considerations

Other Considerations

ROAST, fix your profile

When you use Bumble travel, your profile shows a badge notifying other users that you are a ‘traveler.’ This can play spoilsport as certain users might not be interested in connecting and meeting with a person who is not from their city.

We hope that Bumble gives users the option to hide the traveler badge, like Tinder, to increase the chances of connecting with new people.

A good tip to avoid issues: specify in your profile that you are traveling and when! Reassures big time, super-efficient.

If you wonder whether you would have success traveling, whether your profile niche is efficient, just checkout ROAT to get a profile review right now!

FAQ

Steps before reseting

What does Bumble Travel mode do?

Travel mode simply puts you in a different city. It is like traveling without moving from your couch!

A great way to plan a trip, anticipate moving or simply find people from around the world!

Can you change the location more than once while using travel mode?

Yes, you can change the location at any time you want during the seven days you have the travel mode on for.

How long does travel mode last?

The Bumble travel mode lasts for seven days. You can, however, increase the duration if you want, depending on your stay.

Can you hide the Bumble travel mode status?

Unfortunately, you can’t hide the Bumble travel mode status. It will be shown on your profile and will be visible to all users. This is a big letdown, but we can’t do anything about it.

Is travel mode available on Bumble web?

No, travel mode is currently not available on Bumble web. It can only be used on Android and iOS app versions.

Can people on Bumble see if you're in Travel mode?

Yes! People see if you are on travel mode. They will see some sentence saying

Jessica is traveling to L.A.

As soon as you activate bumble travel mode, you will see that blue travel bar.

This clearly has an impact since people may not be happy with matching with people too far away.

However it is a fun thing too. Always enjoyable to see that someone may be from far away, or a good way to start the conversation!

Bumble travel is definitely worth a trial. Before moving to a new city, you definitely would want to find friends, networks, and dates beforehand. We can look at it this way. Before traveling, we book flight/train tickets, hotel accommodations, and other things. If we can plan these things to ensure a hassle-free trip, why can’t we plan dates and friend meetups beforehand as well? It seems logical, right?

So, go ahead, use the Bumble travel mode, and reserve dates even before you set foot in the city you are traveling to.

Before you leave, how about knowing how strong is your dating profile?
