The Travel Channel is a satellite and cable television channel that features documentaries and how-to shows related to travel and leisure around the United Statesmarker and throughout the world.

It was launched by Trans World Airlines in 1987, presumably to boost airline attendance, subsequently being sold to Landmark Communications, owner of The Weather Channel, and later Paxson Communications. Discovery bought 70% of the channel in 1997, acquiring the rest in 1999. In May 2007, Discovery sold Travel Channel to Cox Enterprises subsidiary Cox Communications as part of a larger multi-billion dollar transaction. However, Discovery Communications still distributes the channel under Discovery Networks.

In the United States, the Travel Channel is available in 89 million homes.

In countries where a totally separate Travel Channel based in the UK operates, the Discovery Travel Channel operates as Discovery Travel & Living.

Travel Channel launched a mobile web service and GPS-capable downloads for mobile devices in June, 2008.

In 2009, Travel Channel launched the "Travel Bug" advertising campaign; the concept was developed by Dallasmarker-based agency, Moroch.

The Travel Channel is headquartered in Chevy Chase, Marylandmarker.

On November 5, 2009 it was announced that Scripps Networks Interactive paid $1.1 billion for a 65% interest in the network.
