We’re excited to announce that Smart Diamond members now have early access to the pilot version of the Open Passport!
Developed by Dtravel and launched in collaboration with Travala.com, the Open Passport enables you to relive your trips by collecting digital NFT stamps in your blockchain-based Open Passport for every flight, stay and activity booking completed on Travala.com.
The Open Passport is initially being offered exclusively to Smart Diamond members for FREE on the BNB Smart Chain. Members can connect their MetaMask or WalletConnect that contains their Travel Tiger NFT to their Travala.com account and the Open Passport will be sent to the connected wallet on the BNB Smart Chain once minted.
Smart Diamond members can now mint the Open Passport and redeem NFT stamps from previously completed trips. Travala.com will cover the gas fees involved in minting the Open Passport and stamps during the initial release.
Each NFT stamp serves as your “proof of travel” for a specific booking. Stamps will be redeemable the day after a flight, hotel or activity is completed. For example, if the check-out date for a hotel is on 22nd April, the stamp will be redeemable on 23rd April.
Stamps will also be immediately redeemable retroactively for all past completed trips once members mint their Open Passport. For example, if you completed 5 bookings of any kind on Travala.com in 2022, all of these trips will be instantly redeemable for stamps once the Open Passport is minted.
All stamps are untradeable and cannot be transferred to another Open Passport. While the Open Passport itself can be transferred between wallets (along with the stamps contained within it), Open Passports will not be made available for sale on NFT marketplaces.
About the Pilot Release
This is a pilot release. As part of the ongoing rollout, the Open Passport will be made available to other Smart member levels in the future. If you would like to upgrade to a Smart Diamond membership, simply lock 2,500 AVA in your Travala.com account, pick up a Travel Tiger NFT from OpenSea, and activate the NFT in your Travala.com account.
The capabilities of the Open Passport will continue to expand, with exciting features like customisation options, rewards for completing travel quests, limited edition stamps, and the ability to use AVA to enhance your Open Passport experience all planned to be introduced.
