According to the majority of scholars, the answer is no.
According to Imam Ahmad, it is recommended to break the fast.
Our class adopts the majority opinion that it is more virtuous to keep the fast of Ramadan even if we are on travel, unless there is a hardship involved.

The evidence is in the following hadith narrated by Anas ibn Maalik, “We once traveled with the Prophet pbuh, in Ramadan, and those who were fasting did not find fault with those who were not, and those who were not fasting did not find fault with those who were.” [Bukhari and Muslim]
