General Training Writing – Model Answer (Task 1)

You are going on holiday and you would like to hire a car. One of your party is in a wheelchair. Write a letter to a car hire company. In your letter

  • explain the reason you need the car
  • describe the type of car you need
  • ask what the price is and what it includes
Dear Sir/Madam,

We are a group of five who are traveling to Moscow for a week, starting on the 24th of June. A member of our party is wheelchair bound and in order to facilitate him and make movement around the city easier we wish to hire a car from your company. We are also planning some day trips outside Moscow so a car would be the ideal way to travel.

We would be interested in hiring a small mini van that could seat us all in as well as have space for a folded wheelchair. A ramp will be required, preferable an electronic one and a large sliding side door. These facilities will help the wheel chair user enormously.

Could you please inform me of the cost of hiring such a car for a week? Will there be additional costs for insurance, road assistance, fuel etc or are these included in the cost of hiring the vehicle?

I look forward to your reply.

Yours faithfully,

Arthur Fouwa
