Take an official letterhead, if possible, and put the date at the beginning. Be sure to include your name and address and the name and details of the company you are writing to for the reservation. Use professional language and provide all relevant information.
- Begin with a salutation
Write an appropriate salutation after the date, your name and address and other details at the beginning of the letter. The salutation could be "To whom it may concern" or "Dear Sir or Madam," for example.
- Be precise and to the point
Write the main body of the letter with specific details about what you need and method of payment for your requirement. Write about your reservation without fluff; use formal language, be precise and to the point. Include all relevant information, such as your contact details, your date of arrival and departure, and any particular requests.
- Provide important information
Inform the recipient if you have been there before, so that the management can be aware of your earlier stays. Give a short note on the kind of visit, duration and the type of accommodation you would like to have in the body of the letter. Identify how you plan to pay for the facility's services. Divide the different points you raise into paragraphs to make it easier to read and understand.
- Close the letter
Once you have made all of the relevant points in your letter, request a confirmation of your reservation. Reference your contact information if there is need for any further communication regarding the reservation. Indicate that you are looking forward to arriving at the destination, and thank the reader for his attention. Include a complimentary close, such as "Sincerely" or "Regards," and follow with your signature.
