durant/pendant for holiday?

For the question: 'How could you say "Gregory is going away for the holidays.",' 3 answers are correct:

Gregory part durant les vacances. 

Gregory part pendant les vacances. 

Gregory part pour les vacances.

In the lesson it is explained that durant/pendant is only used "to express a duration with a clear beginning and end." Holiday doesn't have it, so shouldn't be 'pour' the only valid option?
