Hello,
I need your advice. We rent apartments so i would like to know the best way to write this:
«If you want to book please pay 100 euro (+ bank costs) at the next account: xxxxx
The rest you will pay on the day you come.»
Is it ok and is there a more suitable way to say it.
Many thanks

If you wish to book this apartment/apartment xxx [choose one], please pay 100 euro (plus bank costs) on account/in advance [choose one]. The balance will be required when you arrive at the apartment.
Many thanks feebs11. Please let me know can i use some other word instead of balance. I think that many people are not familiar with this one.
Is there a colon here ...on account: xxx
Site Hint: Check out our list of pronunciation videos.
I'd use deposit to describe the initial payment and balance to describe the final payment. These are both common words, especially with regards to holiday/apartment bookings.
Thank you nona the brit. It seems that «on account» is expression that means «in partial payment of a debt». I think it is not necessary here. What is the right way if i want to insert account number. Is it also ...on account 111 or ...at account 111.
Thanks
on account - only really used in business situations where a company holds an 'account' with another company, not holiday bookings. Use either deposit or reservation fee.

If you wish to book this apartment you will need to pay a 100 euro (plus bank costs) deposit/reservation fee. The balance will be required when you arrive at the apartment.

To book this apartment please pay the 100 euro (plus bank costs) deposit/reservation fee.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Thank you nona, but i have to give them my bank account number. Can i say «please pay 100 euro at my account number 111»
Oh I see, sorry. You tell them to pay into account number xxxxx
Many thanks nona the brit. I hope you get big money helping people here. Or at least have a good time.
