Alpha 18 Cars (07736 144 878) is a family run business operated by Bob and Jeanette Massey and Daniel Stangar. We provide a private hire car service for passengers in central Mid-Sussex and regard the A272 and A275 corridors as “our patch”. Our main operating areas are Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, Cooksbridge, Chailey, Newick, Maresfield, Wych Cross and East Grinstead.

Our personal fleet of fully insured vehicles includes large hi-spec saloons, estate cars and a Ford Galaxy people carrier that can carry 6 passengers. Multi-seat and prestige vehicles are available via our sub-contractors.

Alpha 18 Cars are licensed with the council, and by strict regulation we are regularly medically and CRB policed checked. We all hold current certificates.

Drop Off, and Meet and Greet

Airports, Railports, Sea Ports And Cruise Terminals

This is where Alpha 18 really excels. We have many years of experience travelling to and from many UK Cruise Terminals, Air, Rail and Seaports, including Gatwick and Heathrow. Over the years we have gained intimate knowledge of the layout and systems in place and use this expertise to give you an excellent quality of service.

Business Travellers

We are very proud of our business client portfolio and a common link to the passenger is often via a very efficient secretary/pa. Some of our business customers who travel frequently enjoy the convenience of a monthly account. Others use a business credit card and pay as they go. After a long haul flight some clients contact us while negotiating passport control and baggage reclaim to request coffee/water and a newspaper to be met with in arrivals.

Holiday Travellers

Your holiday starts the minute you get into one of our cars. The driver will “check” you have everything and done everything before driving off. When en route the driver may talk about your destination. If airport bound it could be very early in the morning and if you are not in the mood tell the driver to shut up! We will not be offended. At the point of drop off the driver will re-check any return details.

Assisted Travel

If you have booked assistance at the port please let us know before pick up as the drop off area may be different to normal. The cruise terminals have this sorted very well and just recently the airports have designated drop off zones. Generally it is usually a senior citizen who has booked assistance, and with Alpha 18 senior citizens enjoy set fares and a service with empathy. If you prefer a lady driver, this can be arranged.

Fare’s Fair

Please note that sometimes the journey to the pick up point is greater than the fare distance. For example, when a pick up address is in an extreme rural location. Whilst we try and maintain a ‘door to door’ charging policy under certain circumstances this is not always possible and a small supplementary charge will be made.

How to Pay

Pay A Taxi

You can pay us by cash, cheque or card. You can use any credit or debit card including Amex.

Business customers can arrange to pay on account as well as pay by cash, cheque or card.
