    quotes

    Teacher, are these sentences OK? Thank you.

    Can you give me quotes for a return flight from Hong Kong to Jakarta and 2 nights' hotel accommodation. I prefer to leave Hong Kong on the morning flight and leave Jakarta on an evening flight (after 5 p.m.).

    It's a good attempt. I would make a couple of amendments, most importantly to include the dates you want to fly.

    Can you give me a quote/a few quotes for a return flight from Hong Kong to Jakarta and two nights' hotel accommodation? I would like to leave Hong Kong on the morning flight on September 19th and return from Jakarta on a flight after 5pm on September 21st.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: quotes

    In AmE, we would say a "round trip." To me a "return flight" is the flight I take to get back home from wherever I have previously traveled. "I'm leaving Monday for Texas. My return flight is on Friday."

    Re: quotes

    Can we use "quotation" instead of "Quote"? I have heard that word when I went to take my travel insurance.
