Halocho #178 - The traveler's Sukkah guide

People in transit are exempt from eating in a Sukkah if building one will delay them.

If they can locate a Sukkah to eat in, and it won't delay them, then they must do so.

Travelers who rest by night need to build a Sukkah for night-time use, if the expense is reasonable. If not, they should try return home every night, if possible.

A Shli'ach Mitzva - a Mitzva emissary - is exempt from the Mitzva of Sukka, even when not traveling, if building / locating / using a Sukkah will delay them or cause them to be exhausted the following day.
