In an ongoing series that normally takes place in a few fixed locations, the Vacation Episode is a one-off episode where the characters leave their familiar grounds for a well-deserved rest. The vacation will invariably be set in a faraway and exotic location for maximum impact; given the higher costs of shooting on location, the episode will often be [[StoryArc longer than usual]], to make best use of the budget. A SpecialGuest or three might also be included. Expect some jokes at the expense of the city, country or people visited, targeting NationalStereotypes, [[FunnyForeigner funny foreigners]] or a CultureClash between our protagonists and the foreigners. When jokes are made at the expense of the protagonists' own nation or culture it's MyCountryTisOfTheeThatISting.

May overlap with other types of episodes depending on the destination; for instance, a VacationEpisode to Hawaii will inevitably also be a BeachEpisode. It may also turn out to be a BusmansHoliday. Occurs in lots of anime, often as a BeachEpisode.
