If they are traveling then they do not have to offer expiation. If a husband and wife are traveling, they are allowed to have intercourse, just as they are both allowed to have food and drink. This is because the one who is allowed to eat and drink is also allowed to have spousal intercourse. However, the husband is not allowed to have intercourse with his wife if he is a traveler and she is a resident (he comes back from travel and reunites with his wife who had not traveled with him).
