I hope you are enjoying the start of summer—likely quite a different
summer than you'd planned, but still, one with perhaps new ways to enjoy it. But one thing I hope you do not
have to do this season is listen to our hold music!
While we have taken several internal measures to improve our service levels, we are still experiencing a very high call volume and long average handling times. To help serve you better and faster, we have also ramped up resources available on VAX VacationAccess
and through the ALGV Advisor Update online hub
, all of which answers the most frequently asked questions coming through our lines.
Here are some of the most common requests we're getting, and the fast facts that answer them: Can the call center expedite my resolution?
Unfortunately, as much as they would like to, they cannot. Calculations, refunds, transfers, etc. are handled by different teams and in the order in which the original request was received in the interest of serving all
customers equally and fairly and preventing further ripple effect delays. What date are you up to for refund request submissions?
This is displayed right on the homepage on the top right corner of the ALGV Advisor Update
