Nyra Holidays Guide

Nyra Holidays is always looking to the forthcoming when organising supported vacations and with the release of the NDIS funding, Nyra Holidays agents have been conditioned to give the ideal assisted vacation which can utilise NDIS funding where feasible. Our founder has been meeting with other providers, plan managers, support coordinators, nongovernment organisations and his own staff to be sure the supports we promise are fair and legal.
With the NDIS now strongly in the market and we have noticed many modifications in the plans, the changes are mostly beneficial, and the travellers are now becoming more smart on how to utilise funding to improve their lives, specifically when it comes to assisted getaways.

NDIS Plan Tips

Nyra Holidays has been encouraging participants to strategize their NDIS plan to better utilise the services of a planner or support coordinator. Planners and Support Coordinators make the process easier, once the plan is implemented and less stressful in knowing how to access the funding of the plan approved for the participant. There are 3 basic ways to access the funds of your plan:

  • Agency Managed where the NDIS administers the money and all services must be provided from a NDIA registered provider.
  • Plan Management allows the flexibility to use non-NDIS registered providers but can be risky if the person or company has not got good policies and procedures in place.
  • Self-administer the plan; this means you access the portal independently and pay all the providers yourself via the NDIA Portal.

Plans modify over time and every time you do a comparison ensures the plan matches together with your lifestyle and objectives. Every year, you should anticipate some alterations and upgrades to your plan. The NDIS is a scheme that is developing continuously and with all the participants and providers giving suggestions to the NDIA, hopefully the scheme will allow individuals with a disability who wish to enjoy a supported holiday to gratify their dreams and pursuits.

Easy to understand NDIS Terminology

LAC – Local Area Coordinator

These people are assigned to work along with participants to set up a plan for the coming 12-24 months. Once the plan is finalized, they would send the plan for final approval to the NDIA. It is advised that you have all the plan related details organised before meeting with the LAC.

NDIA – National disability Insurance Agency

This is the name of the organisation that runs the NDIS.

NDIS – National Disability Insurance Scheme

This is the title of the insurance system that is functioning, and at times is mistaken for the agency that supervises it.

Agency Managed

The participant decides to allow the NDIA or the agency to manage the money for them rather than self-managing or using a Plan Manager.


Self-managing your Plan means you manage the financial areas of the plan such as budgeting and claiming money through the portal to pay service providers.

Plan Managers

Plan managers are financial bodies, both private and not for profit, who claim money from the NDIS to pay for all the various NDIS-approved areas of a participant’s life from the plan.

Support Coordinator – Coordinator of Supports

Both these job roles are equally similar. Support Coordinators possess higher Qualification and therefore ought to be more skilled; whereas Coordinators of Supports perform the same role but at a cheaper rate. They both work for the participant by assisting them in finding services, using the plan and ensuring the funding is utilised efficiently.


A provider is an NDIS-approved company or disability service providing you with products or solutions that can be claimed through the NDIS.


When asking for a package from the NDIS you become a participant in the scheme, therefore allowing you to get a plan.

The Plan

The plan or package signifies an agreement between the participant and the NDIA, describing the details of what money is allocated to what area of the person’s life.

The Portal

The Portal is the digital system that enables the participant, provider and NDIA to connect. It also permits both parties to enter service bookings and claim funds from the NDIS. The participant, provider or Plan Manager is required to sign into the portal and get into a service reservation and then once the service is delivered the provider can sign back into the portal and claim the outstanding funds.

Service bookings

This is an agreement between the participant and the provider detailing what service is to be delivered and when.
