Could there be a better example of how to treat your customers?
Congratulations to Airbnb for having what must be the best Customer Service!
On April 3rd 2016, I was due to fly out to Milan for a short break, staying at Marco’s apartment booked through Airbnb. (https://www.airbnb.co.uk/rooms/5666713)
Raging toothache prevented me travelling and, instead, I spent a very long Sunday morning in the walk-in dental clinic in Rhyl waiting for a molar extraction and for an abscess to be cleared.
Obviously I emailed Marco, as the host, and apologised. He was polite and courteous and advised me to contact Airbnb Customer Service.
Hannah B. at Airbnb asked if I had a receipt or any proof of attending the dental clinic. I had a ridiculously faint receipt but also an envelope with the clinic’s stamp and the prescription that had my name and yesterday’s date. I sent Hannah a photograph of all three.
Within 2 hours of my email and attachment being sent, Airbnb had replied informing me that they had issued a full refund and wishing me a speedy recovery.
Impressed? I certainly was and am. First-class service from all at Airbnb. Congratulations and thank fou for not adding to my discomfort and woes at this time.
Now……I wonder how Ryanair will respond?
