It depends upon what kind of camera you have. You will need a sturdier travel tripod if your camera set up is quite heavy. On the other hand, you may not need a tripod in the case of smaller and lightweight mirrorless, DSLR or compact cameras. Similarly, you may also consider having a travel tripod if you want to take high quality travel photographs without a lot of effort. Similarly, you can take better photographs in certain conditions such as low light and rough terrain with the help of a travel tripod.
