General Training Writing Task 1 Sample 104

IELTS Letter Writing / GT Writing Task 1:

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

You are going on holiday and you would like to hire a car. One of your parties 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

You should write at least 150 words.

Model Answer 1:

Sir / Madam,
I am planning to organise a trip for my family to Manali during the upcoming summer holidays and for this, we want to hire a four wheeler. I am writing this letter to inquire about the availability of an 8 seater SUV within the time period of 5th to 10th May 2016.

Firstly, I would like to inform you that one of my grandparents is in a wheelchair and he is also escorting us on the trip. Hence the vehicle should be spacious enough as the comfort of the passengers is the foremost factor of consideration for us. Moreover, we have never been to Manali and we are totally unaware of the road maps. A car with GPRS facilities will be highly appreciated in this situation. And finally, I hope that there is no need to mention that we are expecting an AC drive in this hot summer season.

Please confirm the availability of the vehicle comprising of aforementioned amenities or an alternative with details, in the case of non-availability. I would be grateful if you can provide the quote for the same. Also looking forward to hearing about any concession from your side on the reservation of the car in advance with cash payment.

In anticipation to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely,
Amita.

Dear Sir/ MAdam,
I am writing this letter to inform you about hiring a rental cab from your agency for a short trip to hilly region with my family during this summer vacation.

Initially, I need a comfortable four wheeler cab that has full facilities with eight seats while we go to hilly region. I think Mahindra Vehicle is suitable for us and would like to know other alternatives from you as well.

Afterwards, I would like to hire on the 12th June 2015 to 16th June 2015. When I return from hilly area after finishing our trip, I would hand over the car in time.
Similarly, I request about the price for hiring the car. Could you please send me detailed information of cost of 8 seated car vehicle for 5 days in rental?

I am really looking forward to your information for a cab. I hope you will reply promptly and arrange everything so that I can rent the car from your company.

Yours Sincerely

Siris Gita
