Travel Pass

Answered

Before I went overseas to Japan in MarchTelstra was requested to set up travel passes for two mobile phones. One phone was set up incorrectly.

As a result whilst overseas I started to get messages re charges. I spoke to 24/7 chat to raise the alarm and to say they must have set up that phone incorrectly. 

I was told they had and not to worry I would not receive any charges other than the travel pass.

A few days later messages re charges continued and so I contacted 24/7 again whilst on holiday. I was again told a full credit would be issued and that an error had indeed been made. 

When getting home and receiveing my bill no credit had been applied. I was charged for the calls  $875.31 and not the $350 travcel pass on that phone.

It is now after 6 24/7 chats and a number of phone calls and I have still not had resolution.

I was told it had been esclaled to a complaint and a case manager would contact me within 2 -3 business days. That was on

 12 May and again by phone on 16 May. 

Clearly 24.7 chat does not provide the service Telstra says it does. Everytime I have beenn told they will contact the previous consulatant or yes you are correct and the matter will be fixed. But nothing is done and I never hear anything.

 

I am about to go overseas again and wish to have this resolved. It is taking up a lot of my time which is very poor customer service I have been a Tesltra cusomer for over 40 years. 

 

I have  prepared a summary of all activities and requests that have taken place , I am hoping there is someone I can email it to to get some resolution or  any ideas on how to get a resolution?

Re: Travel Pass

Hi JH48, 

 

Sorry to hear that the complaint is yet to be fully resolved for you, can understand that this has been a very poor and frustrating experience.  

Do you happen to have the SR reference number for the lodged complaint?

Re: Travel Pass

Thanks for that, JH. I've emailed your case manager, requesting she get in touch with you about this as a matter of priority. I do apologise for the long wait to have this resolved, and I'm confident she'll address this quickly and appropriately. 

Please let us know how you get on - Matthew.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.

Avoid queuing up and never worry about late fees again.
