    The dictionary definitions make the distinction clear.

    "Tour" is both a noun and a verb. "Travel" is usually a verb. We can go on a tour and we can tour a country. We can travel to a destination, we can't go on a travel.

    Usually. But an accountant might say 'All the claims for travel appear in this column.' And there's a slightly archaic/literary usage, whereby 'travels' [=instances of travelling] can be reported on. (This isn't news to bhaisahab, but I thought other readers might be interested in the background to his use of 'usually'!)
