    As far as I know, it should be more like: "L'année dernière, nous n'avons que eu deux voyages." You need the auxiliary i.e. correct form of avoir when forming the perfect tense. Someone whose French is better can correct me if wrong lol

    It would be more : L'année dernière, nous n'avons eu/fait que deux voyages.

    I'd also say it's: L'année dernière, nous n'avons fait que deux voyages.

    Both is alright. Just depends on the context.

    - L'année dernière, nous n'avons eu que deux voyages.
    would be more like.. you were student and the school gave your the opportunity to travel only two times. You had them.

    - L'année dernière, nous n'avons fait que deux voyages.
    is used in a general way to say you went on travel only 2 times last year. It's more about your choice. See the differences?
