Disambiguation: see travelling.

Travel is an English verb.

Travel is a regular verb and has the third person form "travels". However, there are spelling differences between American English and British English. In British English, the preterite and past participle are both "travelled", the -ing form is "travelling", and one who travels is a "traveller" (all spelt with a double L); whereas in American English the corresponding forms "traveled", "traveling" and "traveler" are preferred.

Travel is the most common English verb with the American single-L spelling.

Travel is a cognate with the French word "travailler" - unfortunately this is a false friend, as travailler means "to work".
