Travel Is Dangerous is an EP by Glaswegian post-rock band Mogwai. The dog on the cover of the EP is called Princess, and belongs to Stuart Braithwaite and his wife, Grainne.

The song "Travel Is Dangerous" is one of the few Mogwai songs to have lyrics, and also appears as track #4 on their 2006 album Mr. Beast. It is speculated that this song is about the sinking of the Russian submarine K-141 Kursk in the Barents Sea on August 12, 2000.
