Bowens 500r

I own a bowens 500r gemini studio strobe

Indoors I use my canon ex600r speedlight on camera to trigger the strobe

On outdoor locations 90% of the time it will not work no matter how close I am to the strobe.. Today I had a beauty shot at a beauty saloon and it didn't work for some reason..(the strobe was working fine with the TEST button but with my flash mounted on my camera it wouldn't fire) lucky for me I had 2 yongnuo flashes and a softbox on my car and it saved my photoshoot.

I don't want this to happen again so I was wondering what cheap options do I have for triggers? I don't want to spend too much money as I am saving for a godox 600pro strobe

thanks
