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
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
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.
