here's nothing like a well-deserved getaway. For some of us, it's the only time we get to explore and unwind. But just because you're going aboard, doesn't mean you must go it alone. No matter your destination, finding a date can be as easy as a swipe. Here are some travel dating apps that will have you boo'd up in a snap.

MissTravel

This nontraditional dating site provides savvy travelers a chance to either invite someone to join your getaway or go on a luxury vacation with someone as your first date. If you're the outside-of-the-box type, MissTravel can be a fun new way to enjoy your next trip.

Registration is easy. Sign up, create your profile, and upload your photos. Once complete, you will have access to MissTravel's millions of potential travel companions.

Tinder Passport

If you want to stick to something a little more familiar, Tinder Passport might be the connection to home that you need. If you're a Tinder user, you can use Tinder Passport the same as you would at home; however, there are a few differences you should be aware of.

First, Tinder Passport requires a subscription. Second, you have to intentionally set your location to your destination (or where you're traveling to). You don't have to be abroad to use it. Tinder Passport is accessible anytime.

Flip The Trip

Flip The trip is an app for travel meetups and connects you with travelers and locals at your destination. It has said to have connected over 43K travelers across 4,500 cities. If you are looking for someone to get lit with or to grab a meal with, Flip The Trip might be the perfect app for you.

Downside: Flip The Trip is only available on iOS; however, you can access some of its features on Desktop.

YourTravelMates

A platform for travelers to find travel companions, share experience, and gain insights from locals. YourTravelMates is a resource for meeting new people or exploring the rich culture of your new destination with trip planning features and functions that make finding love to new heights.

Members are encouraged to share their travel stories and photos, which makes meeting new people as easy as a Facebook post. Sign up is similar to online dating sites like eHarmony and Match, where users post details about their age and orientation preference, hobbies, interests, and desires for a partner.

Tourbar

Need help finding dates or new friends before your trip? Tourbar is the app you need if you want to explore your destination before you get there, make plans, or map out future activities.

Using the app is simple. Down the app on iOS or Andriod and sign up. To get the biggest bang for your theoretical buck, Tourbar requires a premium subscription. Fees range between $29/1 month and $89.99/6 month.
