            Perso la prenotazione ”

            A causa di restrizioni pandemiche non siamo riusciti a partire…siamo rimasti a terra causa disinformazione della compagnia aerea! Abbiamo chiesto un voucher ad Alba House per una prossima vacanza e ci ha risposto di no. Abbiamo tentato di raggiungere via mail Alba House tramite sito di prenotazione senza esito. Trovata la mail del customer service finalmente li abbiamo contattato e spiegato la disavventura, la loro risposta è stata che senza preavviso non hanno potuto rivendere la camera 😳😳… ma se siamo rimasti a terra in aeroporto…quale preavviso potevamo dare? Dato il periodo particolare che stiamo vivendo, mi aspettavo più comprensione. Sandra, Treviso
