Our Story

The idea of Lucid Travel was planted when a group of NC State friends decided to plan a group trip, a process most are familiar with. We didn’t want the stereotypical “party” Spring Break. We wanted to experience new adventures, new people, new feelings, and new ideas.

What we encountered was that planning group travel is HARD. The list is endless: “Who's coming? Where/when should we go? How do we get there? Where do we stay? What to eat? What events are going on? How much will it cost? How do we get the best price? Who still hasn’t paid?”

Every step of the process was slow and unorganized. It nearly cause the trip to be cancelled all together, but we were able to secure last-minute airfare, lodging and lift tickets right in time for a successful trip out to Breckenridge Ski Resort in Colorado. The beautiful mountains, small-town culture, and world-class slopes set the scene for a once in a life time trip. This trip was the “light-bulb” moment for simplifying the entire process of organizing/booking group travel and Lucid Travel was born.
