The term ‘travel’ refers to the movement between relatively distant geographical locations, and can involve travel by foot or other means of transport. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements.

The origin of the word "travel" is lost to history. The term "travel" may originate from the Old French word ‘travail’. According to the Merriam Webster dictionary, the first known use of the word travel was in the 14th century and its origin is from Middle English ‘travailen’ meaning to torment, labor, strive or journey and earlier from Old French ‘travailler’ meaning to work strenuously or toil.

As far as the purpose or the motivation of traveling is concerned there are a number of issues to consider. The purpose may vary from tourism and recreation to the business travel or migration. The motivation for traveling follows the same pattern as the purpose, it can be for the pleasure of it, relaxation or exploration.
