Hello, I need to make a reservation at your place for 3 persons going on holiday for 14 nights beginning from 5th March to 19th March 2014. I will need to know your rates per / night for the 3 guests and i will need you to tabulate and let me know the total run-down cost for 14 nights period so we can arrange for payment. If you do not have availability at the time we request, Kindly let me know when you will have availability to accommodate 3 Adults. I await your kind reply. Regards, Andy. 21 Vernon Terrace, Brighton. BN1 3JH, United Kingdom. Hello, Thanks for your reply and assistance so far. I have just concluded arrangements with the visitors for the trip to your place for that period. However, A Certified Bank Cheque for £ 3, 700 was issued by the company sponsoring the visitors to cover the cost of accommodation and transport for the visitors who are coming for this vacation. I will not be able to make a deposit separately because all the money meant for their accommodation and transport came in one cheque package, Therefore i have been instructed to send you the Cheque, so when you receive the cheque payment, You are required to deduct your cost of hosting and keep the balance of their money which has already been designated by the company for the transportation of the visitors. I will need you to provide the following information to send you the cheque. 1, YOUR FULL NAME (AS IT SHOULD APPEAR ON THE CHEQUE) 2, YOUR ADDRESS / POSTCODE and 3, YOUR PHONE NUMBER. Do you have any car hire arrangement? I will await your email with the details so that instructions can be given for the cheque payment to be forwarded to you immediately. Regards, Andy.
