What is the difference between handheld and travel mirrors?

Handheld mirrors typically have a fixed handle and are usually left on top of the vanity, or hang from their handle.

All travel mirrors are handheld but not all handheld mirrors are designed for travel. Usually, the handle of the travel mirror is detachable or can be folded and the surface is protected against damage during travel. These mirrors are a bit more compact than traditional handheld mirrors.

Travel mirrors come with an added protection and are usually shatter-proof.
