How could I pay for a holiday during my DMP?
The budget you agree when setting up your DMP usually allows you to put some money aside for sundries and emergencies. Sundries tend to be occasional expenses such as:
- Christmas - read our tips on how to save at Christmas
- Unexpected travel costs (for example, if you need to attend a job interview, funeral or other event at short notice)
- Other miscellaneous costs
While it’s recommended that you save this money for emergency costs (such as car repairs, boiler repairs or replacing a necessary kitchen appliance), how you spend it is ultimately up to you.
Your budget also includes a category called 'savings'. This can also be used to save for a holiday if you want to.
You won’t be able to pay for your holiday on credit, as this goes against the terms of your DMP.
