Global exchange provider, DAE, has given away the vacation of a lifetime to one lucky member couple who have won a $20K Grand Prize Getaway in celebration of 20 years of DAE changing exchange.

Ian and Kerry Christian (pictured), DAE members from South Africa, won the grand prize by transacting with DAE throughout their 20th birthDAE year in 2017.

Mr and Mrs Christian have been members of DAE since 2006 and plan to visit Australia for their grand getaway, where their children and grandchildren now live.

Managing Director of DAE Global, Francis Taylor, congratulated the Christians on the announcement. “We’re thrilled to award this prize to Ian and Kerry and thank them and all our members for sharing in our celebrations this year.

“Even though it’s our birthDAE, the gifts have been on us, with members all over the world entering competitions by booking Bonus Weeks or Rentals, renewing their Gold Advantage benefits, depositing their week or simply booking an exchange with DAE in 2017,” said Mr Taylor.

Throughout 2017, members, resorts and industry partners across the world joined with DAE to celebrate their birthDAE in various ways.

“We’ve celebrated our journey, our staff, our growing network of exchange resorts and shared plenty of great memories with members who have joined DAE over the last 20 years,” he said.

“Hearing from members who have been with DAE since our first year and are still actively exchanging and enjoying their holidays has been particularly special for all of us.

“Above all, to know our friendly service and easy to use exchange platform are still responsible for getting owners going on holidays and creating more memories is what truly excites us to keep innovating, improving and building our unique service into the future.

“There are still so many exciting changes ahead for DAE and we look forward to sharing them all over the next 12 months with our members.”
