Your Holiday Starts Here
IT ALL STARTS WITH A DREAM
Life can be incredibly demanding. We all deserve a break now and again to
recharge our batteries, spend quality time with our loved ones and enjoy the
fruits of our hard work.
If you’ve always wanted to take more holidays, but without going in circles to
plan them, you now have the power to make those dreams a reality and on
your own terms. It all starts with Dream Vacation Club, your new all-access pass
to the holidays you’ve been dreaming of.
NOT JUST ANY CLUB
Dream Vacation Club offers holiday assurance and security, which ensures that
you always have the opportunity to take a well-deserved break when you need
it the most.
Trends in fractional holiday ownership are moving away from fixed-weeks
towards a more flexible system, which provide greater holiday options. This
is why we work on a no-frills points allocation system which allows you to
book your holiday online or telephonically through our Holiday Concierge
As a member, you’ll enjoy a lifetime of travel memories with a diverse selection
of hand-picked holiday accommodation across exclusive resorts in South Africa.
These range from our own developments, including our flagship Peninsula All-
Suite Hotel in Cape Town, to luxurious resorts of international distinction.
Along with assured satisfaction and top-notch service, our club is backed by
20 years’ of experience and our loyal and dedicated team are waiting to make
your next holiday your best one yet.
OUR DREAM VACATION CLUB RESORTS
Planning a holiday as a member of Dream Vacation Club isn’t just about
choosing a room – it’s about searching for that perfect experience and
we’re here to help you find it.
Over the years, Dream Vacation Club has secured a wide selection of
holiday accommodation and incorporated Dream Vacation Club points
which have been allocated according to unit size, facilities, location, season
and demand. Most of our resorts are situated in popular holiday areas of
South Africa and have been chosen for their peaceful surroundings, as
well as their close proximity to wilderness and wildlife, or for their specialinterest
We have also personally star-graded our options from “standard” to
“deluxe” to help you decide on the holiday most suitable for you. Bear
in mind that our foremost resorts naturally require more points than
comparable accommodation with fewer stars, for the same time of the year.
If you love to travel internationally, Dream Vacation Club will also give you
the power to make your international holiday dreams a reality.
We offer some of the world’s most sought-after resorts through our various
exchange partners like RCI, Interval International and iExchange. Start with
4100 or more points and when you’re ready to book, one of our international
sales executives will assist you by adding the finishing touches.
LET’S GET STARTED
During a short consultation, we will help you determine which level of
membership will best suit you. Our sales executives will be available to help
establish your holiday requirements by asking a few simple questions such
as how many people usually travel with you, how frequently you travel or
would like to travel, and if you prefer shorter or longer holidays. Keep this
all in mind.
Based on this quick needs analysis, we will then propose a suitable point
allocation guideline which you will receive annually for as long as you remain
a member of Dream Vacation Club. You only purchase these points onceoff,
with the option to upgrade at any time.
HOW DO I BOOK MY HOLIDAY?
We know that planning your holiday should be fun, but most of all, we
believe in keeping it simple.
To book your holiday, all you need to do is page through your electronic
member companion and select a destination as well as a preferred resort,
with some alternatives. Our easy-to-follow guide provides you with the
exact number of points required for a holiday at a specific destination,
along with our star grading to give you a better idea of what the selected
