Platinum Cars (Bournemouth)

My name is Colin Newman of Platinum Cars. Along with my wife Frankie and daughter Sharlotte, I purchased the long-established Moordown-based chauffeur hire business in February 2018, when the previous owners retired after 15 successful years.

Holiday, business & student travel

Platinum Cars has always specialised in long distance journeys, to airports, docks, ferry ports and any other destination. We operate a fleet of modern vehicles including Estates, MPVs and 8 seat Minibus. All vehicles and drivers are licensed with BCP Council. Our friendly drivers are well versed in scheduling journeys, anticipating weather & road conditions, and they understand the access & operating conditions of all the airports and seaports we service.

Modernising & expanding

We have just introduced a new state-of-the-art Booking & Dispatch system to manage our customers travel requirements, ensuring a smooth, efficient service at all times and helping us manage a larger customer base as we expand the business.

Heathrow £105, Gatwick £115!

Hassle-free airport travel, avoid steep parking charges! These prices are for up to 3 passengers, including luggage, travelling one-way from the local BH area in a comfortable saloon with a professional driver who will take you direct to departures.
