How Lucid Automates Tournaments Hotels
Lucid Travel is vastly different than most tournament travel agencies. This is because we’ve created our software to work for any event, large or small.
Room blocks are most common solution for accommodating groups. They are usually used for large tournaments and stay-to-play events. Room blocks require a lot of lead time because a custom contract must be negotiated to determine pricing, special terms, cut-off dates, and cancelation policies.
Automated rates are what makes Lucid unique. These rates are pulled in to your event/tournament automatically from 40+ vendors including Booking.com, Expedia, Hotels.com and non-public wholesale networks. Automated rates do not require a custom contract, can be made available instantly, and can be booked up the date of check-in.
Automated rates are a gamechanger for:
- Hotels not willing to set up room blocks (This allows you to be able to still offer and earn revenue from hotels not willing to participate in your event’s room blocks)
- Smaller events where the number of rooms needed is not known
- Event/tournaments that are past the cut-off dates for the room blocks set up (This allows you to still offer hotel
deals and earn revenue for teams that book last minute)
- Ability to offer rates and earn revenue from any hotel (not just the hotels you set up room blocks with)
In both scenarios, you are able to define your rebate (meaning how much you want to earn per room night booked) and select the hotels you want to offer on your Lucid Travel Page (see example here). As with any other Lucid Travel feature, everything in our software is customized to your needs and is totally free.
