With membership numbers soaring in the past two years to 500,000 direct members, the world’s largest independent exchange company has expanded its resort portfolio and exchange availability in key vacation destinations.
“We have more timeshare, vacation ownership and club members from all over the world joining our free membership program every day,” said CEO of DAE, Francis Taylor.
“What that means for our members is more choice and more availability to exchange their weeks or points for a vacation in any number of desirable destinations.
“As members open up availability in their own resorts, in January DAE also created new partnerships with several resorts in Thailand, India and Italy, giving DAE members access to more exchange options in these high-demand vacation markets.
“From bustling Bangkok, to the beautiful beaches of Thailand; an Italian summer by the sea; or travelling through majestic India – DAE has more choices for our members, whatever style of vacation they prefer.
“Owners looking for an exchange in Italy have several new options with exchange weeks now available at the relaxing Hotel Alba Sporting in the historic Abruzzo region; or by the sea at Blue Marine Residence and the Residence Torre Inserraglio, both located in Apulia – the latest Italian summer hot-spot.”
DAE’s free membership also offers a broad range of products and services including access to unlimited discount Bonus Weeks and Rentals, with no exchange required, for members to travel as often as they like.
“We continue to grow our non-timeshare resort inventory, offering members access to exceptionally priced Rental weeks,” added Mr Taylor. “The Tara Court Boutique Hotel is a new daeOptions resort in Pattaya, Thailand – a luxury serviced apartment facility located on Pratumnak Hill, just minutes’ drive to the world-famous Jomtien beach.
“As well as providing the simplest and most affordable exchange platform, DAE is enhancing membership by boosting our range of accommodation types and availability in top destinations around the globe.
“With more places to travel, our members are booking more vacations through DAE and getting the best value for money out of their vacation ownership.”
