Jimmy Ezzell as baby with mother

Hello, my name is Jimmy Ezzell and I am a Filipino native, but was raised in the Kansas City Missouri area from the very young age of four. I was born in Manilla, Philippines and now as an adult have an innate desire to travel all over the world and help others to do the same! It’s one of the reasons why I was so excited to start my own travel business.

In 2017, I had the opportunity to acquire an existing travel company and keep the best pieces of that company including the travel technology. I knew how big the travel industry was and because we were going to have “Members Only” pricing we could offer travel prices at a fraction of the cost found on public websites like Expedia, PriceLine, etc. I knew that people loved saving money on travel and TripValet was launched!

I come from humble beginnings. When I was growing up, I thought a vacation was a 50 minute trip to an amusement park called Worlds of Fun. I remember going around on the weekends and collecting aluminum cans with my mother from local bars, restaurants and businesses. We would save enough aluminum and turn them in to have enough to go to Worlds of Fun.

I learned at a young age that hard work was important and that things cost money. My parents always worked very hard to provide for us and my mom taught me how to make the dollar go farther. She was always saving the family money and I caught onto her ways. It’s the reason I have kept the TripValet membership prices low and affordable for everyone!

My wife, Niki, and I have traveled all over the world. My friends and family have used the membership and saved lots of money on their vacations! We have thousands of members since inception that have used the membership over and over and over. We have gotten testimonials from members telling us how amazing their trips were! Nothing could make me happier!

Then 2020 came and the covid pandemic hit the world. Travel was shut down for months on end and our company suffered. We lost over 90% of our members. But we got lean and mean and have been able to survive the last two years of an interesting time in the history of travel.

But the good news is that travel is back, baby! And we are ready and better than ever! TripValet has been preparing for this and we are ready to help thousands, if not tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of people save money on their next vacation!
