Shop and Ride Local

Shop Local, Ride Local

Supporting local is at the foundation of our DNA and we want to help support our islands businesses by using our platform to help you get there. This holiday season we are partnering with Mana Up Hawaii to bring you to the very best local products Hawaii has to offer. Every week from now until Xmas we will be highlighting a favorite category of local products to learn about and visit House of Mana Up with a $40 holoholo ride credit on us to get to and from!

$40 holoholo Ride Credit

In addition we will be giving 1 lucky rider a 6 month long mana up monthly subscription box. Just use the MANAUP code before you ride to be entered to win!

“Holiday gift giving doesn’t have to mean shopping for the best deals from big box stores. It can be more meaningful and thoughtful when you shop from your small local businesses! Shopping local these days means your purchase has power. Not only are you supporting our islands’ rising makers and artisans, but these entrepreneurs also contribute to the local economy as they help foster high-quality jobs, agricultural sustainability, and a regenerative culture of entrepreneurship in our community,” says Meli James, cofounder of Mana Up.

As a reminder we are the only rideshare company to have a vaccinated driver option available when booking a ride in the holoholo App or holoholo website. Introducting “Vaxd” a vaccinated rideshare option. We want all riders to feel safe when riding with holoholo,” says CEO Cecil Morton. “Giving them the option to ride with a vaccinated driver helps provide our guests with peace of mind.” Drivers interested in adding the service option can upload their vaccination card on the holoholo Driver App.

“Manu Up is the perfect company to partner with holoholo. We are local and we love promoting local businesses to help grow our community and economy here on the islands,” says Cecil Morton, holoholo CEO and founder.
