Can I use my DP to pay for the cost of taking my PA with me on holiday?

I’ve booked to go on a short 4 night holiday in July and need my PA to come with me to provide assistance. Can I use my DP to pay for the cost of taking her? There is more than enough money in my pot and one of my goals on my support plan is to travel more. There is not a specific action plan for that goal, only to bank hours and use DP flexibly. Not only that but I now have to contribute £87 per week (not really affordable!) So surely some of that money in the pot is mine that I can have some control over?
