Rocketrip Points are rewards with real value. With every dollar you save on your trips, you’ll earn points to spend on cash and gift cards. Unlike frequent flyer miles, there’s no confusing exchange rate or long list of restrictions on how and when you can redeem. Rocketrip Points are effectively like cash. Spend less on business travel, earn more to spend on the things you actually want. It’s that simple.
Rocketrippers earn an average of $119 in rewards per trip, and some have earned over $1000 on a single trip.
You earn Rocketrip points when you come in under your Price to Beat. You can think of it like this:
$ Reward = (Price to Beat - Trip Cost) x Employee Reward Share
Your employee reward share is set in your company’s travel policy. Most Rocketrip travelers keep 50% of what they save, before taxes.
Your rewards are calculated in Rocketrip points. 10 Rocketrip points equal $1 in rewards.
Taxes and fees
Taxes on flights, hotels, and rental cars are automatically included in your Rocketrip Price to Beat. This means your savings and rewards will be calculated net of your flight and hotel and rental car rate plus taxes.
Ancillary fees such as bag check fees, travel agent booking fees, hotel room service, cleaning fees, incidentals, and rental car insurance generally are not accounted for in your Rocketrip Price to Beat. This means your savings and rewards are calculated independent of these expenses.
Coming in under only one part of your trip Price to Beat
Separate guidelines exist for each travel mode of your trip. If you exceed one mode's Price to Beat, you can still earn rewards by coming in under your overall Price to Beat. For instance, if you exceed your flight Price to Beat by $100, but come in under your hotel Price to Beat by $200, your rewards will be calculated based on an overall savings of $100.
We encourage you to book ahead whenever possible. To reward you for doing so, we give you Advance Purchase Points. Different companies choose different early booking thresholds, but the most common thresholds are 21+ and 14+ days in advance. In these cases, if you book a flight at least 22 or 15 days in advance, and the lowest available price for your trip is higher on the 21st or 14th day, Rocketrip will award you a percentage of the increase.
After you submit your receipts, your points will be in the "pending" state. Your points will remain pending until:
The dates of travel have passed
Your expenses have been approved for reimbursement by your company
It can take a few weeks from the time you are reimbursed until your pending points are released.
Once approved, your points can be redeemed at the Reward Store.
You can redeem your Rocketrip Points for gift cards, a cash card, or (if you’re feeling generous) transfer them to a coworker or donate them to charity.
To redeem your rewards, click on the "Redeem Rewards" button of your employee dashboard.
Gift card options include Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Best Buy, and many more. Most gift cards are available starting at $25.
Once you’ve earned enough Rocketrip Points, you’ll also have the option to redeem them for a Prepaid Virtual Visa card!
