They both risk corruption when traveling. Get two, one will be your backup. Very rare for two to go out at once. SSD will hold up to being banged around during travel. That said, no drive is 100% travel proof, so get two, back it up, often.

SDD is more expensive, HDD more prone to damage when moving. If you can afford SSD, go with that.
