Orlando, Florida – October 18, 2013 – (INTUITION by Perspective Group) – DAE South Africa has announced another new addition to its Gold Advantage product range for South Africa, following an expansion of regional benefits in recent months.

The latest benefit secured for DAE South Africa members upgrading to Gold Advantage is in partnership with GATS Leisure. As a respected and well established tour operator, GATS has qualified for steeply discounted rates on accommodation, train trips, boat cruises and safaris, across a wide spectrum locally and abroad.

“GATS is delighted about the partnership with DAE and we are all looking forward to taking members on holidays that create unforgettable, fond memories,” said Annel Smith, Leisure Travel Manager at GATS.

“DAE South Africa is proud to open up a world of touring options by partnering with GATS Leisure,” said Director of the DAE South Africa Business unit, Paul Edkins. “We would like to welcome GATS as one of our trading partners for the Gold Advantage benefits package.

“Gold Advantage gives DAE members advanced access to new holiday weeks, priority requests and 10% off fees and Bonus Weeks; and is the ideal add-on for members who go away more than once a year.”

Following an announcement earlier in the year, new Gold Advantage benefits now available to DAE South Africa members include a special discount on specified massages at any of the spas within the Orion Group. Orion currently owns 13 properties throughout South Africa, with spas onsite at three of the properties. Some of the Group’s signature properties include the Coach House Hotel & Spa, Santé Hotel & Spa, Selborne Hotel, Golf Estate & Spa, Velmoré Hotel Estate and Dithõlõ Game Lodge.

Holiday Autos have also come onboard as a DAE Gold Advantage partner; offering preferential rates when making car rental reservations through Holiday Autos.
