Every time I travel, Gmail believes there may be suspicious activity as the sign in comes from a different location; I get that.

However, it then asks for my password and usually will not recognize it. So, I can’t access my email account.

Any way to prevent this?

What is the exact error message you receive, both when it informs you of suspicious activity and when Gmail won't accept your password? Gmail should still recognize your password if you're traveling. –  John Bensin Sep 25 '13 at 18:33
Also, have you disabled the alert within Gmail by clicking "Details" at the bottom of Gmail (to bring up the list of IP addresses that have visited your account), clicking "Change", then clicking "Never show an alert for unusual activity". After disabling that, do you still get locked out when traveling? –  John Bensin Sep 25 '13 at 18:34

You can access the account via VPN or public/private proxy. That should prevent this from happening. At least it has been helpful to me.
