Every other travel company: “Insert your credit card details here. Great! We’ll see you in 6 months for your week-long trip with complete strangers.”
Bolt takes the exact opposite approach. Before joining, each prospective member engages in our Discovery Process (outlined below) to make sure everyone's on the same page regarding our mission, ethos, and expectations all around. There's no "click to buy" - we think that if you're traveling halfway around the world and spending your hard-earned money, it's worth taking the time to gain a deep understanding of our community, and the folks with whom you'll travel.
After joining, members can book any trip, access our online platform to connect with other members through profiles, video hangouts, and our Slack chat. Find travel partners, and take advantage of offers from select partners’ products and services to elevate your next adventure.
Lifetime membership in Bolt's community is $300, paid upon joining. This is a one-time payment (not annual, ie, you'll only be charged once).
Think of this as an investment in Bolt, and in your travel for years to come. Every member of our community has made this investment and participated in our Discovery Process. Without these commitments, we couldn't curate our membership, nurture the intimacy of our private online platform, and take the time to thoughtfully develop our community.

If that resonates - drop us a note. It's perfectly OK to be brief, but we also encourage creativity, and having some fun with it. We look forward to hearing from you!
