The absolute unpredictability of what lies tomorrow is one of the common challenges of life. We make plans today, commit to others with certain matters, and set appointments and schedules, but as much as we currently want to push through it, some instances demand us to go for the other things with tight urgencies.

Lucky for you we have Cancellation Letter Templates in Google Docs, premade by our professionals so you can save your time and effort. These are easily editable for your personal needs. Download now!
There are several reasons why a particular individual cancels his or her appointment. It can be something professional or personal. For instance, in a journal article by Salwa A. AlSadhan, “Frequency of missed and cancelled appointments in King Saud University orthodontic clinic,” it was shown that at least 25% of the responders admitted that one of the main reasons why they cancel their appointments to the clinic is because of their inability to get off from work or school, or sometimes, due to forgetfulness.
However, it should be concurrent with your cancellation to submit a formal letter so the other party can promptly adjust his or her schedule. On that note, here’s our list of fundamentals in helping you write a formal cancellation letter in Google Docs.

As you write the opening of your cancellation letter, you should specifically state first the appointment that you have already made with the other party. This is to let the recipient know which appointment you are talking about among all other appointments. Stipulate as well other verifying details such as the schedule date and time, reference numbers, and others.
After specifying the appointment, it is a vital requirement to indicate your reason for canceling in your simple letter. While you do not have to explain elaborately, just state in context concisely and comprehensively.
Once you are done explaining why you can't make the appointment, ask if it is possible to reschedule, and include options on when you are available.
So that you and the other party can officially acknowledge the cancellation, it is highly important that you request for a cancellation confirmation in your cancellation letter. Commonly, requesting for a response letter is the option for a cancellation confirmation.
There are many circumstances when you can submit a cancellation letter depending on your specific appointment. Some examples of these are club membership cancellation, purchase order cancellation, project cancellation, health insurance cancellation, job cancellation, dealership cancellation, and contract cancellation.
While the cancellation of something is not really what people are commonly expected to, some unforeseen circumstances arise, thus, forcing us to cancel an appointment. Yes, you can cancel an appointment as long as you have done it formally and professionally as a sign of respect.
A cancellation is the negation of a supposed transaction or appointment with the other party.
Both are correct. It’s just that it varies through American use and British use. Americans mostly use cancelation, with a single L, while cancellation, with double L, is mostly used by the British.
Verbal cues are the most efficient option you can do to inform the other party of your cancellation; it’s faster. It’s also better to follow it up with a letter for formal documentation and legal purposes.
