You do NOT need to write any addresses.

Write at least 150 words.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I would like to arrange a rental car for my upcoming visit to Chelling City. I will be arriving on the 13th of January and will need the vehicle for a period of 9 days. As we are flying in, we would like to either pick the car up at the airport or meet one of your representatives there. My flight number is NZ154, arriving at 8.45 am.

As I will be travelling with my wife and two children, as well as luggage and camping equipment for the period, we are looking for a medium sized vehicle that will comfortably travel off road.

I would be grateful if you could confirm availability of a suitable vehicle and let us know the costs as soon as possible so we can get this arranged.

For insurance purposes, I have a clean driving licence and am 48 years old.

With thanks,

Brian Sharples
