You will need to unlock fast travel in Dead Island 2 before you can use it. This is done by progressing past a certain part of the game and completing a main story quest called The Red Mist

Once you arrive at the Venice Beach area after completing the section in the sewers, you will need to help out some survivors in the Blue Crab seafood restaurant. After clearing the parking lot for them, you will be allowed inside while a cutscene plays.

Once this cutscene ends, The Red Mist quest will finish, and you will have a short conversation with Emma Jaunt over the radio. Once the radio conversation ends, you will get a pop-up informing you that Dead Island 2 fast travel is now unlocked.
