Can I take my child on holiday outside the school holidays?

Children in school age are not allowed to go on holiday outside the school holidays. You can be fined if you do. If parents can’t leave during the school holidays due to work, it’s possible to request permission to go on holiday outside the school holidays.

Free outside school holidays
Sometimes work prevents you from going on holiday with your family during any school holidays during the school year. This must be due to the specific nature of your profession.

For example:

  • It concerns seasonal work, for example in agricultural sector or catering industry.

  • The work has to deal with peak pressure during school holidays.

  • As an entrepreneur, you miss a large part of your income if you are away during the school holidays.


In that case, you can request permission to leave outside the school holidays. This is called 'appeal for exemption'.


Proof that you can’t go on holiday during the school holidays:

  • As an entrepreneur: you must be able to demonstrate that you miss a large part of your income if you go on holiday during school holidays. This is also referred to as an 'insurmountable commercial risk'.

  • As an employee: if you do seasonal work, you can for example submit a statement from your employer.

Conditions for holidays outside school holidays

Your child is only allowed to go on holiday if:

  • this is not in the first 2 weeks after the summer holidays.

  • you can’t go on holiday during school holidays because of your work.

  • you have not yet been on holiday outside the school holidays this school year.

  • you can’t go on holiday with your family for 2 weeks in a row.

Vrij buiten de schoolvakanties
Soms kun je door werk tijdens geen enkele schoolvakantie in het schooljaar met je gezin op vakantie. Dit moet dan komen door de specifieke aard van je beroep.

Bijvoorbeeld omdat:

  • Het om seizoensgebonden werk gaat, bijvoorbeeld in de fruitteelt of horeca;

  • Het werk met piekdrukte te maken krijgt tijdens schoolvakanties;

  • Je als zelfstandige een groot deel van je inkomen mist als je tijdens de schoolvakanties weg bent.


In dat geval kun je toestemming vragen voor verlof buiten de schoolvakanties. Dit heet ‘beroep op vrijstelling’.

Bewijzen dat je niet tijdens schoolvakantie op vakantie kunt:

  • Als ondernemer moet je kunnen aantonen  dat je een groot deel van je inkomsten mist als je tijdens schoolvakanties op vakantie gaat. Dit heet ook wel een ‘onoverkomelijk bedrijfseconomisch risico’.

  • Als werknemer kun je, als je seizoenswerk doet, bijvoorbeeld een verklaring van de werkgever overleggen.

Voorwaarden vakantie buiten de schoolvakanties

Je kind krijgt alleen vrij om op vakantie te gaan als:

  • Dit niet in de eerste 2 weken na de zomervakantie is.

  • Je door je werk niet op vakantie kunt tijdens schoolvakanties.

  • Je dit schooljaar nog niet buiten de schoolvakanties op vakantie bent geweest.

  • Je niet 2 weken achter elkaar op vakantie kunt met je gezin.
