Veezu, the UK’s biggest and fastest-growing private hire firm, is extending its reach further south with the acquisition of Aqua Cars in Portsmouth.

The acquisition opens new horizons for Aqua, promising an elevated private hire experience for its driver-partners and their passengers.

Launched in 2013, Veezu invests heavily in data, technology, and infrastructure to ensure that hyperlocal private hire operators like Aqua Cars remain part of their community, without compromising the passenger experience.

Aqua Cars’ head office in Portsmouth will become part of the Veezu Group, alongside Bridge Cars in Gosport and Andi Cars in Havant.



Ronnie Leng, Co-Owner of Aqua Cars, said: “Joining forces with Veezu is a natural next step for us to further support our local community by improving the passenger experience. The implementation of new technologies will ensure a more reliable, safe, and easy service for passengers and will aid more than 600 drivers that we partner with across the region.”

Arnie Singh Chief Operations Officer of Veezu, said: “We’re so pleased to welcome the whole Aqua team to Veezu. Their reputation for excellence proceeds them and is one we will maintain through the partnership.

“As our first acquisition of 2024, following a number of successful acquisitions last year including Britannia Taxis in Merseyside, it highlights that our growth strategy continues. We’re thrilled to expand further south and develop our strong network of areas across the UK.”
