Letter: Write a letter to your insurance company

IELTS General Writing Task 1 with sample answer.

You should spend about 20 minutes on this task.

Your car insurance company has told you that they are going to increase the amount you have to pay in insurance for your car each month. You are not happy about this.

Write a letter to your insurance company. In your letter explain:

  • why you are writing to them
  • why you think the insurance should not be increased
  • what you want them to do

You should write at least 150 words.

You do NOT need to write any address.

Begin your letter as follows:

Dear _ ,

Sample Answer:

Dear Sirs,

I am writing this letter with regards to a letter you sent me about the increased amount I will have to pay for my car insurance from the upcoming month.

I am a regular client of your insurance company. My new car insurance is already bit higher than the previous one. Moreover, the sudden increase in insurance is not acceptable at all because I was told to pay 10% more in every year.
As a loyal and longtime customer, I have never put any complaints against your service in the last five years. But this time, the abrupt increased rate brings about concerns about your service. Besides, other insurance companies have not increased their rates. So, what happened to you that you are going to increase the insurance rate?

It would be appreciating if you could explain you situation to justify your decision. Otherwise, I am afraid I will have no choice but transfer my insurance policy to a new company.

Please let me hear from you at your earliest convenience.
