To find the Travel Medallion in Tears of the Kingdom, players will need to complete a side adventure. This side activity is called Hateno Village Research Lab, and it is not associated with the main story, which means you can complete it at any point, so long as you’ve completed the tutorial. There, you’ll be able to meet with Robbie, and you can ask them to make the Travel Medallion.

You’ll get the quest called Presenting: The Travel Medallion and this will take you to the Akkala Ancient Tech Lab, where you’ll need to track down the Travel Medallion prototype and then return it to Robbie. it should be in a chest inside the Ancient Tech Lab. You can only open the Lab after defeating the Yiga Clan guards that were waiting to ambush you at the door.

How The Travel Medallion Works in Tears of the Kingdom

After completing Presenting: The Traveling Medallion quest and giving the prototype to Robbie, you can use the Travel Medallion. Whenever you use the Travel Medallion, it registers your current location as a Travel Gate.

When your location becomes a Travel Gate, this essentially turns your current location into a Fast Travel location. For example, if you plan to travel to another part of the map, you can mark your current location as a Travel Gate, travel to a different location, and then fast travel back to where you used the Travel Medallion. It makes zipping around the map much easier, and you can explore Hyrule at a much faster rate.

Robbie does have two more upgrades for your Travel Medallion, but these are only unlocked after you’ve registered 10 and 15 regions. You’ll need to continue exploring the map to make your Travel Medallion more powerful.
