Thanks for the query.
It is usually very safe to travel by car, train or bus within the first twelve weeks of pregnancy, but you should try not to fly for the first 12 weeks and travel by ship may also present difficulties which you should consider. 

If you have any medical or obstetric complications, such as poorly controlled diabetes, placental problems, or pregnancy-induced high blood pressure, your doctor may recommend that you not travel at any time during your pregnancy.

Avoid traveling during last 2 to 3 weeks of pregnancy.

I hope I am clear.
You are welcome to ask any other query.
Best of luck
