A lot of people might find that traveling with a tripod a bit clumsy and uncomfortable. It's not quite a piece of gear that is convenient to carry around, and dealing with open it and fold it all the time might be frustrating sometimes.
That is why traveling with a monopod instead can be a great alternative. It is more lightweight than a tripod, much easier to extend it and fold and easier to carry around.
