DAE South Africa, the regional office of worldwide vacation exchange provider, DAE, is extending the company’s award-winning customer service to a growing number of South African members.
Offering the world’s only free exchange membership, DAE South Africa’s membership growth has increased by 82% in the first six months of 2014 compared to the same period in the previous year.
The number of weeks deposited into DAE South Africa’s exchange inventory from timeshare resort owners and club members has also increased by 136% year on year.
“DAE South Africa has continued to experience phenomenal growth since opening our doors to the South African timeshare market in 2007,” said Paul Edkins, Head of DAE South Africa.
“Membership growth has been driven by our Resort Registration Program, where members can learn about DAE’s award-winning products and services, and join DAE’s free exchange program at their own timeshare resort.
“Resale agents and sales offices across South Africa are increasingly partnering with us as a flexible, service-oriented exchange provider, with DAE’s simple and affordable exchange platform adding great value to their sales offering.
“And it’s the members who are happiest of all with the benefits of joining the world’s leading exchange provider – not least of which being our unbeatable customer service. Some of our members’ comments say if for themselves:
“I really appreciate your world-class customer service!”
“Thanks to DAE, if I had not joined, my husband and I would go year after year to the same destination where we own a timeshare. We have had the most superb holidays and I have recommended to all my friends with timeshare to join DAE!”
“The more we grow, the more choice and variety we offer our members to exchange their weeks or points for a fantastic holiday anywhere in the world,” said Mr Edkins.
