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".
