What is Travel Mode?

[Note: We’re currently beta-testing our Travel Feature in some regions as one part of our new Bumble Premium subscription, be sure to read this article in its entirety to see if you’re in one of the test countries. Travel mode is not currently available for all regions*]

Going to a conference in a few days and wish you could start networking now? Moving to a new city and want to connect with a new BFF to show you the best spots? Have a dream vacation coming up and looking for a bae to dance the night away with? Whether you’re heading down the road or across the globe our Travel feature helps you form the important connections you’re looking for on your own time.

When you activate Travel you can select the city your profile appears in for seven days. Your location will show as being in the center of the city you’ve chosen (at this time you will not be able to select an exact location) and an indicator will display so other users know you’re using Travel.

To activate Travel follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings by tapping on the grey gear in the upper left-hand corner of the app
  2. Scroll to the Location section at the bottom and tap “Travel to…”
  3. Search the city you’d like to appear in and select it
  4. Five Bumble Coins will be deducted from your balance (or you will be directed to purchase them)
  5. A timer will appear under your location in settings so you know how much longer you have left in Travel Mode

* If you are located in Mexico, India, New Zealand, Australia, US, UK, Canada, France, Germany, or Ireland and using an iOS device, Travel mode is now only available as part of our Bumble Premium subscription and will automatically be available as a feature when you upgrade.  If you are located in Australia or New Zealand and using an Android device this is also a part of Bumble Premium. However, if you are located in the US, Canada, France, or Germany and using an Android device you can purchase Travel mode independently.
