I have just seen this:
Where can you go in January for almost guaranteed sunshine - without travelling for most of the day to get there? The answer is Marrakech in Morocco, a four-hour ____ from Britain, where the average temperature is a pleasant 66ºF.
Possible answers:
Travel: not possible because it is a more general word
Trip: this is the one
Flight: I prefer trip, but I think it might also be good, don't you think so?
Voyage: not possible, only for sea
Cheers

    I would choose "a four-hour flight from Britain [Londres/Birmingham].

    If you say "a four-hour trip" then that includes going to the airport, parking the car, checking in, flying, travel at the other end..." therefore I prefer "flight".

    Also, better to stipulate an airport, as it can take one hour or more longer from airports other than London!

    Cheers.

    I am sorry I made a mistake. I misread the exercise. I've just seen that the correct answer is flight.
    Thanks anyway.
