Travelling waves transport energy from one area of space to another, whereas standing waves do not transport energy. Also, points on a standing wave oscillate in phase, whereas on a travelling wave only points a wavelength apart oscillate in phase - the rest on that wavelength oscillate out of phase with the original point

A standing wave is attached to two fixed points, whereas a travelling wave can exist freely.
