How the NDIS applies to holidays

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is the new system through which people with disability can access supports and government funding. Beyond Borders Travel is part of UnitingCare, a registered NDIS provider, and can help our travellers to achieve their goals with our supported holidays.


The supports listed in your NDIS plan are an outline of your personalised needs. We provide these supports to help you build your skills, capacity and independence so that you can participate in your community, socialise and achieve your life goals.


Holidays are a great way to achieve a range of goals, including independence, social participation, health and wellbeing and more.


Chat to us about how our holidays can help you achieve your NDIS goals on 07 3867 2518 or fill out our enquiry form. We can provide a tailored travel quote for you to pass on to your NDIS planner if you wish.
