Stay cool in August

Welcome to our Hinton cars Blog for August 2019.


At Hinton Cars, we keep you and your pets cool too.

At this time of the year, many of our regular customers have taken themselves away to sunnier climbs. Pets are usually left with friends and family to have their own holiday. Little did our customers know that the UK was going to be hotter than many of the destinations they were travelling too. In fact, many of the pet’s have been caught sneaking onto the beaches to enjoy their own holiday from their parents!

And what a month July was, and even though we have had some rain recently, we are being told there’s more “Sahara Sunshine” on the way!

First time visitor to our monthly blog? We are very pleased you can join us. Now, did you know that every month, we pluck a lucky winner from those who have booked with us and they receive a free trip to the airport!

A free trip? Yes, that’s correct, and if you haven’t entered to win this amazing prize, it’s time to book with us in August and who knows, next month, Lady Luck may shine on you. 


So we are happy to announce this months winner 

Mr Couzens – who will be travelling from Highcliffe to Southampton Docks

Congratulations to our new winner.

We will continue this competition for to keep rewarding our clients so if you are going away in August book your airport/cruise transfer before the 31/08/19 by 18:00 you will be in with a chance to win a single way transfer to the airport or the docks.

We look forward to receiving your booking.

Our news for the month

This month, we had the privilege of receiving a booking from an distinguished gentlement indeed. 

So, what were you doing in 1928 when this man was born? Not even a glint in your parent’s eyes you are probably thinking, and for some of our customers their grandparent’s eyes!

Sir Derek Cons was born in 1928, the same year that researcher Alexander Fleming began to realise he was onto something in his research laboratory and 13 years later Penicillin would be introduced to the world. Imagine a world without that anti-biotic?

Sir Derek, was born on the 15th July and I learned that he was a British Colonial Judge and served between 1986 and 1993 in Hong Kong, and here he was all these years later travelling in style with us at the wonderful age of 91. He has led a very active life and only gave up skiing 2 years ago!! 

It was an honour to be able to transport him to his destination, and because he’s booked with us, he’s also entered into our monthly competition!

I have mentioned that I was going to typing up T&C’s for bookings to go up on our website. They are not quite are ready and will put a link in a future blog and we will start to also put a link in our booking confirmation emails so anyone who has a quote or booking with us can see them. Thank you


Think in advance – Book early to avoid disappointment

Although we do take bookings at short notice, we urge you to think ahead. Many of our customers like a cheeky getaway in September or October…. Ring us today to ensure you are booked in! We are waiting for your call.
