Letter to Cancel a reservation, Sample & Format

Introduction:

To finalize the common dates by all the family members for going on holidays is a difficult task today. In spite of these difficulties and due to the fact that the relaxation is a must in every-bodies family, the head of the family tries to make bookings of hotels much in advance on the probable holidays. Such a booking is required when it is not possible to take a package tour booking from tour organizers. It is also possible that some families have time of few days and want to visit one or two places only.

There are many critical reasons like 1. one of the family member becomes sick, 2. an urgent meeting scheduled on some of the period of the scheduled program, 3. very close relatives arrived for staying for a week covering some period of tour,4. a close relative becomes serious and the family members have to go to that place due to critical condition, etc. In any one of these reasons it becomes mandatory for the family to cancel reservation. A letter requesting for cancellation is required to be sent for receiving refund of money deposited with the hotel. Only hotel booking is considered here, because in the travel plan the ticket amount and the refund amount on cancellation of tickets is fixed with respect to the date of cancellation and the actual date of flight/train/bus travel.

Tips for writing a good letter to cancel a reservation:

  • Write the letter expressing a sense of sorrow for wasting a reservation and by mentioning that you sympathize with the loss
  • Mention the reason due to which you are canceling the reservation
  • If you can arrive in the immediate future to the same place mention the same.
  • Be clear as to why you are canceling the reservation. Be honest about the reason.
