Both forms are correct.
Due to standardizing and simplifying American English spelling, which started with the Noah Webster’s dictionary in 1828, traveling is widely used in the US. Correct British spelling is still travelling, with double l, according to the rule of doubling the last consonant of consonant-vowel-consonant combination at the end of the word, whenever we add a suffix to it. Therefore both forms are correct, whereby travelling is accepted as British English spelling, and traveling is considered correct in American English.
