Lucid understands that traveler safety and compliance with university policy is of utmost concern.
Let's take a look at UC Berkeley's Club Sports program. It's led by a small team that is responsible for booking and managing travel for 50+ sports teams.
Saving hours per week
Teams search on different sites then schedule a meeting with the university staff to make the reservation. Every payment is different & receipts are different too.
Teams go to the UC Berkeley custom link. From there they search, browse, and click on the "Send for Approval & Payment" button. It goes directly to university staff & they book it in one click.
Saving hours per week
Teams sometimes book directly with hotels and other book on various online travel sites. All receipts were different and it was difficult to keep track of them.
All receipts are stored in your university admin account that is available any time along with 24/7 customer service support. Simply login and live chat with Lucid representatives whenever you need to.
