    Just a simple question! Come in please!

    a free 7-day trip or a 7-day free trip? Give me your opinion please, and thanks!

    Re: Just a simple question! Come in please!

    I'd say a free, 7-day trip. The comma is optional.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You could have it the other way round in certain contexts:
    'It's a free trip.'
    'Yeah?'
    'Even better- it's a 7-day free trip.' (this works because 'free trip' has already been mentioned)
