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.


You won’t need to set an exact location, because so many people are going to want to talk to you — that is, if you’ve got a profile made by an expert. ROAST is a service that optimizes your likes and matches on Bumble, making you look good, which in turn makes your flirting go that much better. Try ROAST today.


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.

ROAST is a service that shows you everything wrong with your Bumble profile. Then, they make it right and then some. You’ll look like a movie star in your profile. Try it today.


If you don’t have premium, the steps to use Bumble travel mode are slightly different.


  1. Tap on the gear icon on the top left corner to open settings.
  2. Scroll down to location settings and tap on ‘Travel to….’
  3. Find and select the city you wish to be seen in.
  4. You will be directed to the premium subscription purchase page.

  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?

No matches?

ROAST can help you understand WHY and HOW to fix it.

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!

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.


One way you can definitely make it worth it is by having a great profile. Have a profile that’ll make people want to meet you with ROAST. ROAST is run by a team of experts who personally review your profile and improve it for you; they’ve even got an AI that rates how your picture will perform against the algorithm. People will be lining up to meet you with ROAST.

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’re curious to find out whether you would find success traveling, you can get a professional profile review. ROAST is like a brand manager, and you’re the brand. They’ll help you fit into whatever niche you want so you can attract the right person. Check out ROAST today.

Conclusion

If you want to take your pick of people to talk to and meet, you should show up strong with a really great profile. You can follow a bunch of generic advice — or you can have the profile made for you by ROAST. ROAST will take everything about you and make it work on Bumble like you’ve never seen before. Try it today.


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 your dating profile is?


This profile review will finally allow you to know how to make your profile more attractive, and get more matches and dates with people you really like.
