I noticed that TR_travels needs TR_preview, so I installed them both, but on the download page it says that TR_preview can cause issues with safe files if there is an update to tamriel rebuilt, so this leads to an obvious question: is there an update planned any time soon? I am thinking about starting a new playthough, and you know how long these things can last, and if there is an update a month or so down the line, that will be save file incompatible, I'd rather start later

I'm not part of Tamriel Rebuilt team, so take my words witch a pinch of salt, but I believe there is plan to release update in September.

I wonder if that update would cause issues to people using TR_preview, maybe I should just drop both tr_preview and tr_travels if they are dependent on one another, but I don't really want to because the travel system sounds pretty neat

TR_Preview is generate out of InDev (exteriors and active interior development) and the section files (exteriors largely done, active interior, npc, and quest development). As such it's more prone to change than TR_Mainland is.
TR_Travels builds on both TR_Mainland and TR_Preview as it modifies or adds NPCs to create a cohesive travel network. If you run it without TR_Preview it will throw a couple of errors and deposit you into the ocean, there is however nothing game-breaking involved.

Things are very likely - barring user/modder protests - going to change with the September release, and an article in that regard is currently being typed up. If things progress as planned/hoped, TR_Travels will no longer be necessary later this year, so if you can hold out with your playthrough for another couple of months, this problem will have pretty much solved itself.

Update as of now, TR_Travels is still a thing, Atrayonis is making a version that doesn't require TR_Preview.
