Membership Vacation Club Travel To Go Introduces DAE as First and Only Exchange Platform
The Travel To Go vacation club program is now offering the DAE exchange platform to its members who own timeshare interests. Boasting 60,000 members, Travel To Go has been successfully arranging luxurious vacation resort accommodations for the savvy vacationer worldwide since 1990.
Travel To Go is a growing membership vacation services company headquartered in San Diego, California. DAE is one of the world’s largest independent global timeshare exchange providers and has offices around the world.
Because Travel To Go selected DAE as its first and only exchange service provider, Travel To Go members now can use the DAE exchange platform to deposit their timeshare interest(s) and make exchanges – all conveniently through DAE’s user-friendly online interface. With DAE’s exchange services, Travel To Go members can search, hold, book and confirm instantly – without having to wade through a set of complex rules to conduct a transaction. What’s more, there are no DAE membership dues and the company’s low transaction fees are not charged until an exchange is confirmed.
“This is an important relationship in terms of our membership,” explains Jeanette Bunn, president of Travel To Go. “Of our 60,000 Travel To Go vacation club members, 30% also own some kind of a timeshare interest. As such, we want to enhance the benefits of our members who already own timeshare interests by providing a discounted exchange product from a reputable and powerful global exchange company.”
The arrangement between the two companies is not surprising since they have a natural synergy, as providing top-level service and value for the dollar is foundational to each business. In addition, DAE has a simple, straightforward approach to timeshare exchange that aligns well with membership in Travel To Go.
“We are excited to launch this relationship with Travel To Go,” says Fermin Cruz, vice president, North American business for DAE. “Travel To Go, an excellent provider of membership vacation services, is helping us introduce alternative exchange benefits to even more timeshare owners. With Travel To Go being the platform for several branded vacation clubs, it essentially becomes a distributor of our services to timeshare owners inside several membership bases.
“We’re very pleased and look forward to a long-term relationship. It’s a win for us, a win for Travel To Go, and a win for timeshare owners who are members of Travel To Go.”
