Unfortunately there are no easy solutions. No other film readily available is the same width as 127 and if you were to consider cutting down 120 film (see http://www.toptown.com/nowhere/kypfer/120-828.htm) the numbers on the 120 backing paper may not line up exactly with the little red window in a 127 camera. For an 8-on-127 like your Holiday, it could work, but the 12-on-127 numbers are on the "wrong" side of the backing paper to correspond with 120 film.
Having made an initial purchase of some 127 film it may then be practical to cut down some 120 film and fit this to the salvaged 127 backing paper after the initial films have been processed. Unless you've got access to a reasonably co-operative and knowledgeable lab, this will probably mean processing the films yourself, both to ensure careful salvage of the original backing paper and to preclude any problems arising from the film you've fitted to the recovered backing paper not being the same as the original and the lab then processing them incorrectly, or indeed refusing to process them at all, for several valid reasons which I won't go into here.
