Please ask the question itself in the main text box as well as, in the title box, relevant words from it, or the whole question if it's very short. short tip? would have been OK for the title.
Please also give us enough context/co-text to enable us to give a helpful answer.

If you are going away on a short trip of only a few days.... Trip is also mean short holiday, but I confused which is right- a short trip or just a trip.
I just ment is that true to say a short trip.
For the second time, you need to ask 'Is it correct to say 'a short trip'?
If you mean to say 'short holiday, then say that. Neither 'trip' nor 'short trip' necessarily mean 'holiday'.
here, but I will simplify things today with this post in this thread..
Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
The question itself should be asked in full, with context/co-text, in the main message box.
Let's take the second part first. Your question should have read Is it correct to say "a short trip"? That's fine as a question, but it's difficult to answer as we do not know the context in which you wish to use the words. So, a much better question would have been:
I think "trip" means the same as "short holiday". So , if I am going away for only a few days, do I say "short trip" or "trip"?
Now for the title. We like that to be fairly short, but informative, and to contain the word or words you are interested in. So, this would be acceptable: Can I say "short trip"?
This is also OK: short trip? It is clear that you want to ask us something about these two words.
ps. double check your question to make sure you have made no typos.
