Young pup doesn't know how to ask to go outside

Hello, I have an 18 month old schnauzer x terrier. Iv had her since she was 8 weeks old and had no problem teaching her to go outside to urinate. I have a dog door and prior to that I would leave the door open so she could go out as needed.
She has been spending more time at my parents house the last few weeks, they do not have a dog door, and although my parents are very good at taking her outside regularly she has still been having a few accidents in the house. There is no noticeable preceding crying or lingering near the door. She just wanders off through the house, cannot get outside and so wees wherever.
She has been going to my parents house regularly since I have had her so it is not a new environment but this problem is.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. I feel like I'm going back to square one after putting in all that effort with previous toilet training.
Cheers,
Jess

Ah got to love puppies and potty stuff, not haha. The only real tip I have is maybe introduce bell training into the potty routine. Thats what I did with Dexter because he dosnt give any noise cues on when he has to go and because its a different house the location of the doors that your pup goes to are different and how she gets outside is different as well so maybe she is confused and feels trapped (seeing how she cant just go outside when she wants) and then has accidents.

No problem at all, and you can use it at any house you go to.
The way I did it with Dexter is put the bell next to the door and every time I took him out I would push his nose or paw into the bell so it jingled and take him outside right away after it made a sound.

Its also really helpful if your in another part of the house and cant see the pup but you sure do feel like a servant rushing to the "master" to take them potty lol
