Our guide to getting a cheap deal on your parking
Most airports make more money by selling parking spaces than from the planes that take off from the runway. This is mostly due to low cost carriers paying less for landing fees, and many airports adopting a different business model (Focusing on shopping, rather than travel).
However, if you spend just a few minutes, you can compare prices and half the cost of your parking straight away!
First, a quick primer for every passenger!
In many cases, parking at the terminal is more expensive than taking a train, taxi or a bus to the terminal. This is true even if you compare prices, use discount codes and book your parking "the right way".
Use The Train
Did you know that Cardiff Airport does have its own train station?.
Trains run regularly from Cardiff Central Station, which connects the airport with the rest of the train network.

Pre-Book A Taxi
Cardiff has a number of taxi firms that will take you to Cardiff Airport.
Catch the bus
The T9 Cardiff Airport bus runs regularly from Cardiff Central, all the way to the terminal entrance. Find out more about the route it takes Here.
Book early to catch the best savings
All car parks operate on a "first come first serve basis. This means that prices start out cheap, then become progresively more expensive as demand increases.
By booking in advance (Our advice is 8 weeks before you fly), you'll get the cheapest price locked in before they increase.
Don't pay gate rates
Gate rates, are when you don't book your space until you're outside the terminal gates. This can be terribly expensive and leave you with less choice, as smaller independent car parks fill up quickly.
Types of car park
At Cardiff, there are a few different types of car park available:
Long Stay 1 and 2 at Cardiff are the official, on-site services available. These are located within the terminal grounds, making for a quicker departure.
A cheaper option, these are independent service that transfer you to the airport by minibus. A little slower but a good and cheap solution. The Highwayman Secure is the main independent operator at Cardiff Airport.
