We are a free membership based consumer leisure Online Travel Agency (OTA) that offers exclusive local only rates to its locally verified in-state members. We promote a local approach to tourism, assisting suppliers with developing new demand from a local frequent and loyal customer base. We are a new distribution channel for suppliers offering a membership based program that for hoteliers does not conflict with their rate parity agreements with the large OTAs. Our certification platform to verify local residency is similar to a previous platform we built as OneRez to self certify hotels as Small, Woman or Minority owned businesses on the TravelPort GDS. We were selected and demonstrated as a PhocusWright Innovator on 2010 for that project. We are a small travel tech team, with lots of experience on the IT side and lots of experience and relationships on the supplier side.

We were selected and demonstrated as a PhocusWright Innovator on 2010 for that project. We are a small travel tech team, with lots of experience on the IT side and lots of experience and relationships on the supplier side. We previously ran OneRez in Hilo for four years as a a website and call center for discount auto rental reservations on Expedia and Travelocity. We are in the process of relocating back to Hilo from CT. We intend to launch in Hilo and then roll out the new local OTA in all 50 states and 10 provinces of Canada. We believe we can move the needle on the mix of local verses tourism business for top resorts, hotels, activities, etc. We have worked with the leading hotel revenue managers on the last OneRez project. Our new ProveLocal patent application with the USPTO is similar to our previous OneRez patent for self certification and independent verification. We have received positive feedback from senior revenue managers at top hotel chains. We have received positive feedback from top travel VCs "build your MVP and come back to us", including Battery Ventures, Sequoa Capital and General Catalyst.

Our Mission is to;
Build a fun OTA for in-state residents only, offering exclusive discounted local rates.
Make ProveLocal the first thing people think of in doing something fun and exciting out of the home.
Build a unique brand with a loyal customer base.
Encourage local and eco-friendly tourism.
Build strong partnerships with premier tourism suppliers.
Connect travel suppliers with their local community.
Promoting a new local approach to tourism.
Bringing the Hawaii Kamaaina concept to all 50 states and Canada.
ProveLocal - Born in Hawaii.
