    Get away

    If I say to my family members Let’s get away in May, will it be ambiguous or will it be absolutely clear that I suggest going on holiday/vacation in May?
    What would be the response in idiomatic English? Will Excellent! work instead of Fine?

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: Get away

    It would probably be understood. It is more normal to use "getaway" as a noun than as a verb to describe a vacation trip.

    Re: Get away

    I'd say 'Let's go away in May'.
