"Close to airport, plenty of shuttle buses.
Fast validating of parking ticket.
"Not too bad to get to although a few more signs as to where the airport is on the minor roads wouldn't go amiss. The system adopted is confusing as the machine asks you to take a ticket & pay on return even though you have pre-paid, but this is clarified upon entering the terminal, Considering we flew on a Thursday, it took a long time to find a vacant parking spot, (ended up parking on a grass bank). Benefits, it was on site, it was cost effective, yes i would use it again"November 5, 2007
"This is the second time we have used this service and have found it in the main to be very good. In peak season it can be difficult to find a space but the bus service was there to transport us to the terminal and on our return to our vehicle. Out of season no problem getting a space nearer to the terminal, flight times were utside the bus service but overall no issues."November 4, 2007
"Excellen"November 4, 2007
Sorry its a late reply but lots of things happening in my family since i went on holiday ... My Profession is a Travel Consultant in an Independant Travel Agency ... and as with everything you sort out your customers but forgot to book my own car parking ... was too late to book for myself on our own Holiday Extras site in work (Agents Discount) but it was so easy to book on your site ... If you can work with Travel Agents then get in touch with Allan Shephards Travel 01443-437337 ... It was so easy just turn right out of arrivals hand in your booking ref and your ticket was swiped and you were on your way ...
"The main reason for using BCP's car park is that it's in the airport grounds itself and should therefore be more convenient. You are supposed to use Long Stay car park 1 if you pre-book which is OK except when you get there it can take an age to find a parking space and then you might have a long walk to the terminal. Depending upon the time there's no guarantee you'll catch a courtesy bus. It's not the best, or the cheapest, but I would use it again just because of its convenience."November 3, 2007
"Very easy car park to use. Can walk to the departure terminal if you get a close space, or use the bus."November 3, 2007
"Stayed at Cardiff airport long term car park for 7 days.
No issues at all . Cheaper than any of the London airports.Walked from the terminal to the car park - it is that easy .
There are major roadworks on the M4 , so allow extra time for your journey. ( we allowed 30 mins and that was cutting it fine )"
"Very efficient...no hassle...thank you !"November 2, 2007
"The car park itself was fine.
My only recommendation is to clearly highlight to users that they need to have their parking ticket and documents ready immediately after going through customs as the car park validation desk is immediately after customs before leaving the terminal building."
"The signs to the car parking were fine. The walk to the terminal from car park 2 was easy and quick. The problem was arriving back at 4.30 am and seeing car park one outside the terminal and spending an hour looking for the car in the wrong car park. I know it was fault on our part for not making sure were the car was when we left it but perhaps more obvious signs that there are two long stay car parks would have allerted us to the potential for confusion"November 1, 2007
"Very reasonable price for on airport parking plus an easy walk to terminal, but very difficult to find a parking space on arrival and hard to find exit in dark on departure. More signs would help!"November 1, 2007
"Physically difficult to find one's way in and out of tghe Long Stay car-park with so many temporary barrietrs and the like.
Othwerwise system of prebooking worked well."
"Just to say that we were extremely pleased that we booked parking at Cardiff airport. Not only was it very reasonably priced, but so convenient and easy. I was very impressed that it was clearly signposted where to get the ticket validated on our return. Will definitely be using you again. Thanks!"October 31, 2007
"Signs to the Long Stay parking are confusing and are at odds with the directions provided. If you are unlucky to be directed to Long Stay 2 there are no shuttle buses."October 31, 2007
"Parking spaces hard to find and worrying that there didnt appear to much space to manouver. The journey over was ok. the bus wasn't packed so it was easy to get on and off, no where to store the suitcases which made it difficult with health problems. On the way back it was like 'let battle commence' the shuttle bus didnt have the capity to take every one, again the suitcases were piled up, people had to be left behind it was certainlt every man for them selves, because it was dark and raining this wasnt acceptable.
When on the bus, it was difficult to get off with out getting people to move - surely a bus with out seats would be far more benificial.
Would I use the parking agin - yes because of necesity not because its a good system"
"Found parking at cardiff airport fine. Way out was a bit of a maze though. Staff efficient. Shall parg there again as very convienent to airport."October 30, 2007
"The final sign post into the carpark itslef was not very clear, other than that it was very easy to use and very easy to get between the car park and the airport terminal. I would happily use it again."October 30, 2007
Space very difficult to find
Ended up parking a very long way from the entrance
No buses around so had with a very long walk with bags
Returned late at night. Found the walk back to the car in the dark scary with still no buses around
Not worth paying the extra for being on site
Would have been worth QUICKER Cheaper and LESS STRESSFUL to be off site"
"Confusing as you get in to the airport car park 1 and car park 2.We arrived in middle of the night and the directions weren,t specific.I realise with the restrictions the layout etc has changed.However we were assured by a fellow user that this was ok.No problems on return."October 29, 2007
"PARKING WAS EASY NO PROBLEMS
LOCATION OF SHOP WHERE TO GET TICKET VALIDATED IS IN A POOR LOCATION WHEN LEAVING CUSTOMS
SIGNS FOR EXIT WHEN LEAVING OVERSPILL CAR PARK NON EXISTANT"
"Satisfied about process to book : easy, confirmation received...
Not so satisfied about the parking himself in Cardiff airport, because the BCP parking is not indicated.
We went, as indicated, in the Long Stay parking, but we were really far because no spaces available.
So we had to walk nearly 8 or 10 min.
I have chosed BCP parking, and pay more than the other parking proposed, because it was indicated to be the closest to the terminal (only 2 min walk) and at 4.30 am with a little boy, it was our preference.
But it wasn't the case, so perhaps we didin't go to the good parking, but nothing was clear and BCP parking was not obvious to find. Or we went on the good one, and comments about time to walk to the terminal is wrong and deceptive."
"The main advantage of this carpark is its closeness to the terminal. It's walking distance -- which is just as well because the shuttle bus can be pretty erratic. A less good feature is that the car park is not fully paved, and the gravel used in the unpaved sections spills over onto the paved sections making it difficult to wheel a baggage trolley. And there are not enough access ramps for those using trolleys."October 29, 2007
"Very easy."October 29, 2007
"The directions to the car park were vague and we had to phone to ask where to go. Once there the car park was extremely full and it was difficult to find a space for a large vehicle. The shuttle bus saw us and waited which was good. Main downside was the huge queue at customer services on our return to get our ticket validated for exit to the car park"October 29, 2007
"Great carpark ,very close to the terminal."October 29, 2007
"The advert is misleading.
I wanted to walk to my vehicle but carrying two suitcases to the most extreme edge of the car park in the rain was not an option.
Equally, I have never been in an airport car park ( I have been in a great many all over the world) where the vehicles have been allowed to park in such a disorganised way."
"Very difficult to find a space in very large carpark.
Described as being opposite terminal but ended up parking a very long way from it and had to wait for bus. Leave plenty of time to find a space. Surface of carpark very rough and cars parked in any space they could find blocking the route through."
"We found that our car parking experience was very good. The car park was next to the terminal, with regular buses to it. It was easy to have our ticket validated on the way out.
The only negative thing was that the signs weren't very good on the road leading to the car park, so we had to turn around and come back, and the instructions didn't specify whether we were in long term car park 1 or 2."
"We were surprised how big and full the car park was on arrival. Once we had found somewhere to park we were not within walking distance of the terminal however the bus arrived very promptly.
On our return our bus was the first to arrive and we were in our car within 30 minutes of our plane landing. All in all a very satisfactory service."
