Tinder Passport is one of the lesser known features of the dating app and now we will explain about what it is and how it works. While Passport typically requires a paid membership to Tinder, it can sometimes be used for free through temporary promotions.

The goal of Tinder Passport is that our profile appears in a different position than the real one, to meet new people. With Passport we will see and be seen by people in the city we choose, something useful if we are preparing a vacation or moving to another place.



We have already explained this when the position is updated on Tinder: the app detects our position when it is opened, and does not allow the use of Fake GPS or similar to alter where we are.

Sadly Passport it is part of Tinder Plus, Gold and Platinum memberships, so to see the profiles of other cities we have to pay the fee for one of these three modes (it is included in one of them).

Now we'll explain how Passport works, step by step, for those who already have it available, and also the cost for those who think about using it.

How Tinder Passport works

The ability to change our location in Tinder it is somehow hidden in the settings, perhaps that is why many users do not know what Passport is or that there is the possibility of traveling to other cities with premium subscriptions.

The change of position occurs in the following menu all'interno di Tinder per Android e iOS:

Profile -> Settings -> Tracking Settings -> Location


We will explain step by step how to access it in the application mobile:


  1. From the main screen we will go to profile card, a silhouette icon in the lower right corner:

  1. Under the profile name, we'll tap the «Settings» icongear-shaped:

  1. We locate the «Detection settings» section and click there "Position" to make the change:

  1. Now we will choose the option «Add a new location» in the window that appears:

  1. A map will open, best of all enter the location in the search engine and, if necessary, indicate the exact location using the location indicator:

  1. In the location section the chosen place will be saved, from quickly alternate with our real position, as long as we keep access to Passport:

We've already covered how to change your location in Tinder in case we need to dig deeper, with a tutorial detailing it in depth.

Tinder passport prices

The only way to use Passport is via a paid subscription, does not work as a standalone feature. Obviously it is considered one of the more "basic" extras and is included in Tinder Plus (the cheapest mode), as well as Gold and Platinum, the advanced plans.


In general, Tinder pricing is very expensive and complex, with different costs depending on the user's age, and also if we pay monthly, semi-annually or annually. Below we explain the prices and advantages of the three alternatives:



  1. Prezzo Tinder Platinum.
  2. Tinder gold price.
  3. Tinder Plus price.

In the end, Passport is just an «extra», who investing money in Tinder usually does it to get unlimited likes, which increases the chances of meeting interesting people.

Knowing how Tinder's algorithm works, we realize that it complicates things for those who aren't young and physically attractive by encouraging men to pay for membership (much less common among women).

In summary, the cheapest option for obtaining a passport is to pay €20,99 for 1 month of Tinder Plus, if we pay 6 months or 1 year in advance, the cost for each month decreases, but the amount to pay at the moment is much higher.

Gold and Platinum are a little more expensive as well Tinder does not offer a free trial on any of its three floors. The only alternative will be to wait for some temporary promotion that gives Passport for free to make it known, but they are not very frequent.


Or we can download some of the alternatives to Tinder, for example, on Badoo traveling to other cities is free and even allows us to talk to other people without the complex "matching" process on Tinder, which makes things easier.

After all, Tinder Passport is a useful but expensive feature and that not many will use, as dating platform memberships are too expensive for most members.
