In my last round of applications, I ended my covering letters with a sentence like "I would like to convince you of my skills in an interview1".
However, I'm addressing a company that is more than 1000 kilometers away and I'm just starting my career so I don't have the money to travel there for an interview. Given that, it seems stupid to me to say "I would like to get an interview". I'd like to get this round to something like "Would you also accept to get me to know on Skype or equivalent?"
What would be a less rude way to end the covering letter with the information that I wouldn't be able to attend an in-person interview?
