    for a holiday/on holiday

    She's gone to France for a holiday.
    She's gone to France on holiday.

    Do the sentences above mean the same? Are the underlined expressions interchangeable?
    If it's not too much trouble to you, could you please correct any errors I might have made in this post?

    Re: for a holiday/on holiday

    They mean the same to this BE speaker.

    Speakers of American English would say for a/on vacation.
