Supported Holidays

Aspire Disability Support Group provides high-quality, great value, assisted holidays for travellers with a disability or those with respite care requirements. We are a Registered Provider with the NDIA and are powered by the Spencer Group of Companies – an award-winning, licensed Travel Agency group founded by Penny Spencer in Sydney in 1998. 

Our supported holidays feature genuine, caring service and assistance, and high support staff ratios. We are committed to our clients, to great value and – most importantly – to delivering fun and memorable holiday experiences for all.

Your Support Personnel

The support-to-guest ratios on an Aspire Supported Holidays tour ensures that we can cater to a 1:1 ratio right through to a 1:4 ratio. Our team of dedicated, qualified and passionate Support Personnel all have at least 5 years experience, most 10 years plus, and each have their WWCC, First Aid, Mental Health First Aid, Police Check and reference check, as an absolute minimum, with some of our team holding higher qualifications, we also have a Registered Nurse if nursing care is required (Additional Cost Applies).

We also offer Active Night Awake shift support personnel at additional cost should you require such a service. Prices do vary from trip to trip, so please contact us for rates and full details.

Accomodation

Unless otherwise specified, all accommodation on an Aspire Supported Holiday is based on a twin share basis in hotels, cruise cabins and overnight train sleepers. If you’d prefer not to share, a Single Supplement may be applied to your booking. 

We choose to stay in minimum 4-star standard accommodation on all of our trips. International hotels may occasionally be rated 3-star-plus to keep prices reasonable. However, in most cases, this is equivalent to an Australian 4-Star standard.

Airfares

Aspire Supported Holidays take the worry out of finding the best airfares. All of our international holidays include airfares from a designated departure city. To secure the best airfares we may require a slightly larger deposit than those charged by some other providers. This ensures you don’t up with any unexpected increases in fare, airline taxes or other imposts. 

We recommend you book early to take advantage of our specially negotiated group airfare discounts.

Aspire Supported Holidays can also arrange domestic connecting flights should you wish to join us from other parts of Australia! Additional cost applies, of course. 

Likewise, we can offer pre & post tour additions for a flat fee of $395.00 per person. This includes accommodation, dinner and breakfast and Support Personnel from 5.00 pm the night prior until tour commencement the following morning. 

All of our prices are in Australian dollars, and domestic holidays include GST. There is no GST component on International holidays

Care Ratios

Aspire Supported Holidays are individualised to provide you with the very best holiday experience. 

To cater for your needs and deliver a safe holiday experience, we apply ratios to provide the appropriate level of care you need. 

The ratios reflect the number of Support Personnel allocated per guest on each holiday.

Travel Insurance


If you incur medical expenses while overseas and you don’t have travel insurance, you are personally liable for covering these costs. The Government cannot pay for medical expenses overseas. Nor will your domestic private health insurance. 

Travel insurance is as essential as your passport, regardless of your travel destination. If you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel!
