Lottery trips

On this page there is information and guidance regarding applications for lottery trips to be held in 2025. The application form will be available from June 15 to September 1, 2024, at the bottom of this page.

General information about lottery trips:

Wage earners, paid according to SIK’s collective agreements – and their immediate family members – can be granted a holiday trip by applying to SIK’s Holiday Fund. Holiday trips are awarded by lottery among the applicants who meet the conditions to be able to get a holiday trip.

It is an opportunity for a large group of employees who are employed under a SIK collective agreement and whose workplace pays contributions to SIK’s Holiday Fund.

Please note, however, that lottery trips do not apply to certain professional groups who have been given the right to a holiday trip every two years by agreement. These are 1) commercial and office employees (HKs) in the Self-Government, municipalities and workplaces belonging to the Danish state, 2) children aides and social workers, 3) health aides and support persons, as well as 4) interpreters and translators. Of course, these groups cannot apply for lottery trips.

if you or your spouse/cohabitant belong to the mentioned professional groups with a holiday fund trip every two years, you cannot apply for a lottery trip. In other words, you cannot get both a holiday fund trip every other year and a lottery trip – you can either get one or the other.

The application period is from 15 June to 1 September. During the autumn, a lottery will then be held for holiday trips to be implemented in following year.

What can the Holiday Fund pay for?

The holiday fund pays for the ticket and overnight accommodation on the journey, if an overnight stay between the place of residence and the travel destination is necessary for logistical/traffic reasons.

The journey can only be undertaken by the family together; that is, everyone must leave on the same day and return on the same day.
