    Among the given sentences, the correct one is 'We don't travel at night.' By eliminating "at" from the Ist sentence, it can be made correct.

    The two correct sentences would be we don't travel at night or we don't travel during the night.

    You have a choice:

    We don't travel at night.

    We don't travel during the night.

    "We don’t travel during at night. " would not need "at", while the word "night" have "times" after: "We don't travel during nighttimes." Also, "any" should be before "nighttimes": "We don't travel during any nighttimes."

    "We don’t travel at night." is correct.

    the word pair "during at" is not correct.  It ought to be either "during (the) night" or "at night".  It is generally the case that duplication of prepositions in such a way is not correct. You should be meaning on, or the other, but rarely would both be useful and meaningful.  during is in conflict with at, in this situation.

    You don't generally use two prepositions together.

    As I have told you repeatedly, preposition usage in English is idiomatic- not rule driven. The best way to learn the usages is by reading.

    The second is correct. Using during and at together, creates a redundancy. Either word alone would suffice.

    Second sentence.  First one has a contradiction in terms:  Between "during" and "at".

    The first should read "during the" not "during at".

    If that change is made then either sentence is O.K.
