Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Mr. Johnson,

I am writing to express my disappointment with my recent trip to Spain. I returned from the trip yesterday. I booked this trip from your travel agency with the assumption that the service would be excellent but I was wrong.

First of all, the accommodation provided was pathetic. Bedrooms had bedbugs which caused a lot of rashes on my body. The hotel management was irresponsible as they did not pay attention / pay heed to my complaints during my stay. They did not even change my room when I requested and even threatened that they would cancel my reservation.

I tried to reach the customer service of your travel agency over the telephone but no one picked my phone. I had even sent an email to your team. But nothing really worked. As I had paid for the services and I did not want to cut short the trip I had to put up with whatever services I received.

 It would be great if you can look into my complaint, and refund 50% of the amount I paid for the accommodation. Let me know if you need any other details to review this matter.

I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible!

Yours faithfully,

Renu Khatri

    Dear Sir,

    I am writing to express my dissatisfaction with your tour package.

    About two weeks ago, I went to thiland through your company, but your service did not meet my expectations at all, which is undesirable from a reputed agency like yours.

    Although I had paid for the premium plan, but nothing was extraordinary. The hotel I stayed at was the worst experience I ever had throughout my life. I regret to say that no one will want to consume the food provided by them because instead of cooking fresh products, they use pre-cooked items.

    Here, I want compensation for the inconvenience caused by you as I have spent my own money for eating meals outside the hotel. Also, make sure the hotel you are sending your clients have quality standards in order to get positive reviews from your costumers.

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    Yours faithfully,

    You are unable to attend a goodbye party of a colleague at work. Write to him/her and say,

    – Why can’t you come?
    – Give him/her your best wishes.
    – Suggest another time and place for you to meet.

    Dear Ankush,
    I hope you are doing well!
    I was very excited to throw you a goodbye party at your farewell. However, unfortunately, I have to go to Mumbai to attend business conference meeting and thus I would not be along with you at farewell party. I tried my best to postpone this business conference so that I can be with you at your last day in our organization, but I couldn’t change the date.
    We have spent more than three years together in this organization and have seen many ups and down in the way but I really enjoyed your company while working with you. Now you are moving ahead in your career for better opportunity so I wish you with my blessing for your bright future ahead.
    We will always stay in touch and we will meet next month once you settle in your next organization. I will be eager to know your experience in your new organization.
    Look forward to meeting you soon.
