How we can support you on holidays

Depending on your NDIS plan, you may be able to use some of your funding to cover the expenses of a support worker during a holiday. This could include:

  • Help accessing transport, whether that’s by car, train, boat, or even plane!
  • Learning new skills, like how to use Google Maps to explore a new city
  • Attending social events with a companion by your side

Some of our Members' adventures (so far)

Abdullah competed in an interstate competition

Abdullah and his support worker Jessica drove from Sydney to Melbourne for a week so he could compete in a powerchair football championship!

Ryan and Daniel have been on a tonne of fun adventures with support worker Jared, like a recent day trip to Raging Waters in Sydney!

The NDIS only funds supports and services that are deemed reasonable and necessary for your needs. This means it won’t typically cover holiday-related expenses (like your flights or accommodation).

However, you may be able to use your funding to cover:

  • expenses related to hiring a support worker during your holiday
  • additional fees for hiring accessible transport or accessible accommodation
  • excess baggage costs if you need to bring special equipment with you
  • short-term accommodation (max stay is 2 weeks — you'll need permission from the NDIS if you wish to stay for longer)

We highly recommend chatting to your support coordinator or LAC about this!

Our support workers can help you with a range of social support activities during a trip, like providing transport, accompanying you to social events, and helping with meal prep. They can't help with anything related to medical or personal care, like showering and dressing.

Depending on your interests and goals, you could:

  • Go on a road trip to a new destination
  • Attend a major sporting or music event in another city, like the Australian Open
  • Go on an overnight cruise
  • Get help visiting family or friends in a different state
  • Attend celebrations like Schoolies

Before your trip takes place, make sure to discuss who will be responsible for paying for what. Perhaps you'll be happy to pay for your support worker's flights, but not their meals or accomodation. Clarifying expenses in advance will save you from awkward conversations later!

Our team can put together a quote based on how many support hours you need during your trip. We may be able to match you with a support worker who lives near your destination city, so you don't have to pay for as many support hours and travel costs.

Our minimum booking length is 1 hour! If you're expecting to need a support worker for a long period of time, please reach out to our Customer Care team at or on 1800 545 332 to get a quote.

It depends. If you're an NDIS participant, you may be able to use your supports and funding for up to 6 weeks overseas (the NDIS calls this a "grace period"). If you're planning on being overseas for longer than this, you'll need to contact the NDIS to request an extension to this grace period.
