    Default I will be away on holidays?

    Is this sentence OK?

    "I will be away on holidays, returning August 1, 2012. If you need assistance, contact our Reception."

    In AmE, if official/national holiday(s): "I will be away for the holiday(s) etc." If vacation, "I will be on vacation etc."
