take a trip vs. make a trip

Hi everyone,

Do you see a difference between ‘take a trip’ and ‘make a trip’? If so, what would that difference be?


TOEIC short conversations: Giving directions to the airport[YSaerTTEW443543]

Let me try. Whe say “take a trip” when we didn’t program the trip. I mean, whe decided to travel without anticipation.

We say:
“Make a trip” when we the decision to travel was made long time ago. :wink:

Hi Torsten,

I’ll have a stab at suggesting a difference. Obviously they both refer to making a short journey and the only difference, I think, is that if you make a trip, it is usually to a particular place and that place would be mentioned.


I think Alan is correct! :wink:
