    Default to leave on a trip

    Hi, everyone!
    set off
    [intransitive] to leave on a trip or start going somewhere
    We set off early the next morning.
    I have not met 'leave on a trip' anywhere before
    Is that the same as 'go/start on a trip' ?

    Thank you.

    Yes.
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....
