Tinder's Passport Feature Wants To Help You Find International Love, For Free
Travel may be on pause but dating doesn’t have to be. Take a virtual trip to find a potential boo using Tinder. For the month of April, the dating app is making its passport feature available at no cost.
Typically, users are granted access by paying a fee for either Tinder Gold or Tinder Plus. To get started, simply open the app, head to settings, tap your location, add a new location, and drop a pin.
Passport was a hit last year at the height of the pandemic. Tinder reports that more than 25% of members globally decided to shoot their shot using the feature. The app celebrated its highest matches per day record on April 24, with 55 million connections made. Passport also gained traction on TikTok with 72 million views related to the #tinderpassport hashtag.
“We saw such overwhelming adoption of Passport the first time around because people were desperate for connection,” said Udi Milo, VP Product, Tinder. “One year later, we expect similar adoption for a different reason: possibility. We’re all eager to close this chapter of our lives, but we’re still (mostly) at home. Tinder Passport lets us dream about what life might be like when we can travel, meet new people and make plans again.”
If you need a little bit of inspiration to choose a destination, Tinder has also released data on their most popular cities worldwide. Los Angeles tops the list followed by New York City, London, Paris, Miami, Tokyo, Seoul, Stockholm, Amsterdam, and Moscow.
Tinder’s Passport is free until April 30.
