Orlando, FL (February 28, 2013) — The South Africa office of timeshare exchange provider Dial An Exchange (DAE) announces strong growth figures for 2012 that reflect the acceptance the company has received across the region.
An increase of 17 percent across all transactions compared to 2011 numbers demonstrates the rise of the company’s profile in the area, with membership numbers up 9 percent and a nearly 22 percent improvement in Bonus Week transactions. Exchanges went up 27 percent and membership in the exclusive Gold Advantage Program shot up 66 percent year over year.
The growth was not limited to member transactions, as DAE forged new strategic partnerships with Platinum Vacation Club, Lifestyle Vacation Club and Matembe Leisure as the company looks to extend its brand across different products. Agreements were also signed with Dikhololo Game Reserve, Mount Amanzi Lodge and Ngwenya Lodge to allow DAE services to be promoted directly to owners with the support of resort management.
“We are very excited about the growth we’ve seen in South Africa and the possibilities which exist as we expand our brand throughout the country and across southern Africa,” said Paul Edkins of Dial An Exchange South Africa. “Our consumer-centric philosophy and the flexibility of our products provide cost-effective travel options for our members and builds outstanding value, allowing them to explore the world through their timeshare ownership.”
Timeshare owners can join DAE through its free membership program, with owners able to join regardless of whether they are already members of other timeshare exchange providers. Members can search the available accommodation on the DAE website and request an exchange with no upfront cost, with payment due only after the exchange has been confirmed.
