A, ' Where are you going for the hoilday?"
B, ' We always go/went to Paris on hoilday."
A,' Are you going to Paris for the holiday?'
B,' We never have/had hoildays in Paris.'
Both words are fine in each case? Please.

1) Paris, of course. We always go to Paris on holiday.
2) London, if you can believe it. A new experience for us. We always went to Paris in the past. (I would use "We've always gone" instead of "We always went" but I don't believe "went" is wrong.)
Are you going to Paris?
1) My God, no! We never take our vacation in Paris!
2) Yes, and I'm so excitied! We have never taken our vacation in Paris before!
In each case, 1 shows the continuation of long-standing situation.
In each case, 2 shows a departure from tradition.
