Cardiff Airport Parking
Cardiff Airport offers a short stay car park and two long stay car parks on site.
The short stay is immediately opposite, and only a short walk from the terminal. It is the designated priority pick-up zone, where passengers can be collected for a fee (payable at the coin bins/card machines upon exiting). There is a further priority Drop&Go point immediately outside of the terminal where charges apply.
Long Stay 1 is 200m north-east of the terminal, and Long Stay 2 about 200m to the north. Both offer a free 20 minute drop-off/pick-up period and a free shuttle bus to the terminal every 15 minutes.
All three car parks offer special assistance to passengers with reduced mobility, available on request from the call points situated in each. The dedicated vehicle pick-up service transports passengers to the terminal, and there is a sheltered waiting area within the car parks.
The airport is situated 12 miles west of Cardiff, close to Rhoose. For access take junction 33 on the M4 motorway, from which the airport is about 10 miles and signposted.
Entrance to the drop-off/pick-up areas and the short stay car park is via the Eastern approach on Port Road, and entrance to the long-stay car park is via the Western approach roundabout. All car parks are signposted.
Although the 3 official car parks are uncovered, a number of local companies offer off-site covered parking including airport transfers and valet services. It is recommended to make prior online booking for all parking to save time and money.
