    Smile need or require

    A cacation trip is exactly what you _____ at this time.


    Which fits in the blank better, needs or requires?
    This is a test question; is it possible that either will do? If so, are there any subtle nuances?
    Thanks.

    Thanks, trans, for the feedback. I also go for need, but I'm not sure whether native speakers hold the same viewpoints.
