What is Pono Rez?
PonoRez is an online booking & reservation platform used by tour companies and activity providers throughout the Hawaiin Islands and beyond. The PonoRez platform streamlines the process of booking and billing your customers for the activities and tours your company offers.
Who uses Pono Rez?
Since its initial development in 2001, Pono Rez has been used by Hawaii’s premier activities & attractions. It is owned by a not for profit Hawaii Corporation, a trade association, A3H (Activities & Attractions Association of Hawaii).
If your company is a Hawaii activity or attraction business, A3H membership is strongly encouraged for marketing, industry news, and lobbying representation.
A3H Members are featured on all co-op marketing websites, which A3H maintains to provide one-stop, shop-direct booking opportunities for consumers and A3H members, e.g., HawaiiFun.org, connecting customers direct with suppliers.
In the table below, the second column represents those benefits provided to A3H members by way of membership. Level 1, 2 and 3 are each different options of use. Costs are noted at the bottom of the chart. Click on a Feature to view an explanation.
Why choose Pono Rez?
While competitive reservation systems value the bottom line, A3H values…values.
Competitors create specific improvements/upgrades to their systems then charge to share it with other users. Pono Rez makes improvements, inspired by users, and then freely shares it with all users.
Pono Rez is beholden only to the Activity Provider users. We offer no services (other than free access) or derive revenue from agent desks. We answer only to the Activity & Attraction Providers – A3H Members. As a member, you become an owner of this co-op system. We do this because it’s the right thing to do – it’s Pono. This system is made with principle over profit in mind.
Secrecy is trumped by honesty.
Our cost and finances are transparent. A3H believes by having a system that is made by the members, for the member, the entire industry will benefit.
Pono Rez is not just a different kind of system – it’s a system that’s making a difference.
