Travelling during the Month of Ramadan

Q: Assuming one travels during the month of Ramadan, ought one to pay any kaffārah in addition to observing the compensatory fasts?

A: No, only the compensatory fasts ought to be observed; there's no kaffārah to pay. However, assuming one delays performing the compensatory fasts until the succeeding month of Ramadan (i.e. doesn’t perform them before the start of next year’s month of Ramadan), he/she ought to donate ¾ kg of food, as a kaffārah, for each missed fast.
