I am writing letter of confirmation and I don`t know how to avoid repetition of word information in these sentences:

Thank you for this information. I am writing to confirm that I received information about travel support.

  • This question does not appear to be about English language and usage within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • If you reverse the sentences, you could replace the second information with a pronoun: "I am writing to confirm that I received information about travel support; thank you for sending it." – vpn Feb 22 '17 at 20:14
  • Proofreading and writing advice questions are off topic because they do not help anyone but the asker. The only exception is when there is a clearly identified source of concern about an element of the English language that would be interesting and useful to many future visitors. – MetaEd Feb 23 '17 at 17:47

"...to confirm that I received your submission..."

Edit— better answer is in the comments:

Say "Thank you for the information." That statement alone also conveys that you received the information, and doesn't have to be repeated. Or "I received the information you sent. Thank you."

    Is submission correct word? Because I need to confirm that I got information about allowed travel support for me. – nick_name Feb 22 '17 at 18:42
  • Well, you ARE repeating yourself. Perhaps the better answer is simply to say "Thank you for the information." That statement alone also conveys that you received the information, and doesn't have to be repeated. Or "I received the information you sent. Thank you." – Stephen R Feb 22 '17 at 19:17
  • I don't think that "submission" is the right word for what the OP has described; your suggestion in the comments is better than your answer. – vpn Feb 22 '17 at 20:16
  • Vanderpn — agreed. The real answer is in the comment – Stephen R Feb 22 '17 at 20:17

'Thank you for sending this information about travel support', will do normally. If needed, phrases like 'useful', 'very useful', 'valuable' etc. can be added before 'information'.
