Travel Center Customer Service via phone

I have had to call the AARP Travel Center phone number on several occasions, as I have booked trips through them.  Unfortunately every time I call, I am connected with a customer service agent that's not fluent in English.  The language barrier is frustrating to both sides, as it takes entirely too long to get the problem resolved.  I tried to use the chat feature to avoid the phone call, but I was told I was unable to address my issue via chat, that I would need to call.  This is not the Global Association for Retired Persons, it's the American Association for Retired Persons.  If I'm struggling in my mid-50's to understand these representatives, I can empathize with the senior citizens who are hearing impaired, especially when seniors are more likely to use their telephones versus computers.  I'm all for hiring ESL employees, but PLEASE don't put them on the phones!!!!
