Habitualmente subo con mi familia a El Colorado, lo que incluye mis hijos. El fin de semana pasado 08 y 09 de Septiembre me entero que cerrarán la temporada, y ello coincide con que mis hijos andan viajando, quienes aún tienen 2 cargas cada uno en sus Ski Pass. En razón de ello me acerque a Servicio al Cliente para solicitarles que pudiesen transferir las cargas a la siguiente temporada ante el cierre anticipado del Centro,la respuesta fue negativa.
Mi intención nunca fue devolución de dinero, solo transferir la carga. Uno se pregunta que tipo de orientación al Cliente existe?? Qué tipo de fidelización desean lograr para con el Cliente con su conducta??
Lamento la consideración y predisposición mostrada, y si buscan alejar a los Clientes, están en el camino correcto.
