What’s the deal with travel mode? : Bumble

FULL Bumble Review (2022) – Is Bumble Worth it or Just Buzz?

Bumble Travel: Other Considerations

When you’re using Bumble Travel Mode, your profile will reflect it. Thus far this hasn’t been a problem with our test user.

Unlike Tinder’s travel feature, Bumble informs users that the profile they’re viewing is in another city. With Tinder, you have the option of turning this feature off. It’s possible that users will eventually catch on and be less interested in matching with a man that’s from out of town.

Bumble is after all supposed to be what Tinder users graduate to when they’re done having intercourse with random out of towners.

How does Bumble Travel mode work and how can I change my location on Bumble?

First, you have to ha have at least 5 Bumble coins to purchase Bumble Travel. Once you have the coins you can activate Bumble Travel and change your location by doing the following:

  • Open up the app
  • Go to Settings by tapping on the grey gear in the upper left corner
  • Scroll to the Location section at the bottom and tap “Travel to…”
  • Find the city you’d like to change your location to and select it
  • It will cost you 5 Bumble coins. It will be deducted from your balance or you have to purchase 5 Bumble coins now
  • A timer will appear under your location so you know how much time you have left for Bumble Travel
  • Bumble Travel Mode Price – how much does it cost?

    1 Bumble Travel costs 5 Bumble coins, that can be purchased for 7.99 USD.

    Unlike Tinder Passport, Bumble Travel is not part of Bumble’s premium subscription, Bumble Boost. You can only buy it separately for 5 Bumble coins.

    5 Bumble Coins price can change based on how much Bumble coins you buy at once, but if you only buy 5 Bumble coins, it costs 7.99 USD. If you purchase 20 Bumble Coins, you can save some money on 1 Bumble Travel, as 20 coins only cost 24.99 USD

    If you don’t want to pay for Bumble Travel mode, there is a way to get the effects of Bumble Travel Mode for free. All you have to do is to manipulate the GPS location of your phone. There are several third-party apps that can help you achieve this.

    Although the features are pretty similar between Bumble Travel and Tinder Passport, there are some differences worth mentioning.

    It is also difficult to compare pricing because of the slight difference in how you can use these functionalities. As Tinder Passport can be used as many times as you want it is part of the premium subscriptions in Tinder. Bumble Travel is not part of Bumble Boost subscription, so you can only buy it separately. Although in the 7 days when Bumble Travel is active, you can change your location any time you want.

    We prefer Tinder Passport in this case, as most active users would. We don’t think there are a lot of Bumble users who only want to use the Bumble Travel feature from all of the premium features.

    Well, if you are traveling to a new play in the upcoming days and want to set up dates before actually being there or find a new friend to hang out with, then it is definitely worth a trial. Just to change your location for fun, it seems quite meaningless.

    As it is a new feature, we don’t know yet whether using Bumble Travel gives your profile additional profile visibility in the location you chose your location to be. Tinder is speculated to give you a higher visibility when you are using Tinder Passport. It will be interesting to see whether Bumble Travel can increase your visibility similar to Bumble Spotlight.
