Q: ・Did you prepare for your trip?
・Have you prepared for your trip? Does this sound natural?
A: There isn't too much of a difference meaning-wise. They both mean the same thing. However, since preparing for a trip consists of many actions (packing clothes, making hotel reservations, etc.), it's more natural to say "Have you prepared for your trip?". Asking the second question emphasizes the meaning "Have you done everything you need to do in order to be ready for your trip?", whereas asking the first question understates the number of tasks needed for preparing.

This is why English speakers are more likely to use the second sentence rather than the first one.
