    There's no difference. In America, if a word has the stress on the first syllable, you do not double the final consonant when adding a suffix. Thus - Travel - traveling - traveler.

    However, I understand that this rule does not apply in the UK. Thus - Travel - travelling, traveller.

    It's a matter of convention, nothing else.

    Traveling is the word you want as travelling is not a word, it is spelled wrong.

    NO DIFFERENCE.....If you look in the Dictionary, you will find that you can spell the word with 1 L or 2......I prefer using l L......But both are ok to use....
