DAE Expands Portfolio With Oaks Group Properties
Online PR News – 19-December-2014 – FL – Award-winning holiday exchange provider, DAE, has partnered with Oaks Hotels & Resorts to expand its inventory in high demand destinations and capital cities around Australia and New Zealand.
DAE members can now access availability at Oaks properties across Australia and New Zealand through the daeOptions program.
Head of Group Marketing and Regional Manager, Australia New Zealand, Gary Fog, said the partnership gives DAE members more choice and more value out of their membership, with new availability in key, high-demand destinations.
“Destinations such as Western Australia have traditionally been difficult to accommodate our members with limited timeshare availability,” said Mr Fog. “With the addition of Oaks resorts, we can now offer our members accommodation in great destinations such as Perth, Broome and Cable Beach.”
Oaks properties in both Melbourne and Sydney CBD will also be added to the daeOptions portfolio, along with an array of non-timeshare destinations around Australia and New Zealand, including the Hunter Valley, Glenelg in South Australia, and Caloundra and Port Douglas in Queensland, and Queenstown in New Zealand.
Director of Wholesale and Trade for Oaks Hotels & Resorts, Lachlan Rentell, said introducing Oaks properties to DAE’s global network of members would deliver benefits across both organisations.
"Oaks Hotels & Resorts is thrilled to partner with DAE's worldwide timeshare exchange platform and we look forward to offering members the choice of contemporary studios and hotel rooms, and spacious, self-contained apartments in central city locations and premier resort destinations across Australia and New Zealand, as well as more international destinations in the future," said Mr Rentell.
DAE Members with Gold Advantage can book daeOptions weeks on exchange, while all members can have access to low-cost rental weeks at Oaks resort properties using their free DAE membership.
“Oaks are a well-known and well-respected Australian brand, and we look forward to increasing distribution and exposure of their properties through DAE’s global audience,” said Mr Fog.
