Global Connections, the highly-respected resort developer, travel club fulfillment and service provider of Global Discovery Vacations (GDV), continually engages customers with the addition of new services, adventures, destinations and accommodations. One of the favorites enjoyed by GDV members are the Leisure and Lifestyle Benefits included with their membership.
When Global Connections’ President and CEO Tom Lyons brought Global Discovery Vacations to the market more than 20 years ago, one of its core components was a discount buying service, offering excellent shopping values to members. Today there is still an online shopping mall for GDV members, along with periodic eblasts directed to GDV’s member base offering savings opportunities on appliances, household goods and many other everyday items.
“Our goal is to engage our members even when they are not on vacation,” says Lyons. “Shopping is just one of these opportunities. We also have a full-service travel agency which helps members plan trips, enjoy VIP Travel Experiences, book themed cruises and offer their expertise to members making travel plans.”
Other Leisure Benefits offered by GCI to GDV Members include online booking for Hotel, Car Rental and Airfare as well as resort condominium vacations, guided tours, and camping.
“One reason our concierge style travel professionals are so successful,” continued Lyons, “is that they’ve had the opportunity to experience great travel options themselves and can guide members in their selection of location, activities and transportation.”
