London, United Kingdom, (July 18, 2013) — Dial An Exchange (DAE), the world’s largest, privately-owned timeshare exchange company broadens its exchange membership platform through its “daeOptions” program.
In an effort to provide exchange members with a greater selection when planning their holiday, DAE implemented the “daeOptions” program to provide more accommodation possibilities in high demand areas around the world where there are very few or no timeshare resorts available.
The “daeOptions” program aims to supplement DAE’s already impressive timeshare resort accommodation portfolio by providing non- timeshare properties such as hotels and resorts to its members in sought-after locations. These properties are available to book by DAE members at extremely attractive rates, generally better than what would be available in the open market.
DAE’s Business Development Manager for the Pacific, Gary Fog said “The DAE Options program is all about giving our members more out of their DAE membership; the program provides a variety of holiday options at non- timeshare properties in some of the most popular destinations, located both domestically and Internationally at very competitive rates not often found in the open market arena. With almost unlimited choice via the internet, savvy consumers are now more than ever spoilt for choice with holiday accommodation, it is a very competitive market space and it is why we developed our ‘Options’ program to deliver real value to our members. It is exciting to see the program continue to grow to include some major hotel brands, and to be able to offer our members a choice of destinations that were previously only ever available outside of their timeshare ownership.”
According to recent Australian annual tourism statistics, the most popular tourism destinations in Australia are Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Gold Coast, with the majority of international tourism revenue coming via visitors from China, United Kingdom, New Zealand and USA. There are very few timeshare resorts in the major cities, so offering these locations to members at competitive rates is where the daeOptions program really comes to the fore.
The higher value of the Australian Dollar has also increased aspirational travel by Australians, who in addition to taking holidays in nearby New Zealand, are now showing significant increases in the number of travellers visiting Thailand, other far reaching areas of Asia and the United States.
The daeOptions program strives to seek out demand for popular destinations worldwide and supplement a member’s existing timeshare exchange opportunities with further accommodation choices.
