Sample letter of request for deposit refund. You may have occasion to put a deposit on merchandise, a vacation package, or other item to hold it until you can pay the full amount. If you change your mind, you can request that the deposit be refunded to you.
However, before requesting the full amount, check with the merchant or read over the written contract (if one is issued) to see if the terms grant all or only a portion of the deposit returned. Some merchants and travel agents have a timetable in which a decreasing portion of the deposit is refunded the closer one gets to the final purchase date. Below is a request refund deposit letter sample:

REQUEST FOR DEPOSIT REFUND
Dear Ms. Montevecchi,
I am writing to request a refund of my deposit on two round-trip tickets on the boat from Houghton to Isle Royale. We were to depart April 10 for the island and return to Houghton on April 18. My husband and I have had to cancel our vacation plans due to an illness in the family.
I have paid a deposit fee of $20 per ticket, for a total of $40 (check #815). I understand that we are still entitled to a full refund ten days before the departure date.
Please send the refund to me at the address below. We are very sorry not to be able to go on this trip. We have had many enjoyable vacations on Isle Royale in the past. I hope that we will be able to return next year.
