Team Questions

No, we simply connect you to existing online booking engines like Priceline, and Hotel Planner. Everything is exactly the same but a percentage of every booking is given back to the team as a means of fundraising.
No, prices are exactly the same as our partners. We literally show you exactly what's on their website.
  • Same Inventory
  • Same Prices
  • Same Service
Every travel partner agrees to different commission rates so your team's 'give back' rates will vary depending on the type of travel service (Hotel Rooms, Room Blocks, and Car Rentals) you book.
Travel Service Give Back Rate Comments
Hotel Rooms (0-9 Rooms) 2-7% This varies based on what vendor you book through.
Room Blocks (10+ Rooms) 0-10% Give back rate is subject to the agreement you negotiate with the hotel directly.
Car Rentals 2-3% Lucid Travel honors 50% revenue share up to 6% total commission.
Fligths $4 to $10 per ticket Lucid also has special promo deals for flights.

*Revenue share = The percentage of our total commission that we give back to the team.
According to our current sales, the average 'percentage back' for hotel rooms is 4.3%.

We are very flexible with payments. If your team has a tax-deductible account, Lucid Travel will pay through that. Otherwise, we typically write a check and mail it to what ever address you prefer. We can also pay with PayPal or Venmo.
Yes, but the intent of the fundraising model is to accrue a large sum of money over time. You can think about it like a passive way for your team to save money over the course of an entire season. You must raise at least $50 total to recieve a payout by Lucid Travel.
