Cardiff Airport Long Stay
“ The ease with which I was able to park and collect my car at Cardiff was amazing.” - Haydn Blackey
This on-airport car park is only a five minute walk from the terminal building. Drivers are free to park wherever they want and there is no need to hand in the keys. There are no disabled facilities in this car park so disabled drivers are advised to use Meet and Greet instead.
Please check your confirmation email for details.
Leave the M4 at Junction 33 onto the A4232. Continue along the A4232, following signs to Cardiff Airport. Take the third exit on the large roundabout onto the A4050. Continue along the A4050 and take the second exit at the roundabout. Proceed along the A4050 until you see another roundabout, take the second exit onto the A4226. Take the second exit at the next roundabout and continue along the A4226. You'll come across another roundabout on this road, take the first exit onto Port Road. Shortly after, take the third exit at the next roundabout and on that road you'll see your last roundabout, take the first exit. Continue along this road. The car park is on the left.
On arrival, please make sure you are in the car you made your booking with.
As you approach the entry barrier, a camera will read your number plate and the barrier will rise so please don't take a ticket. If this doesn't happen, press the assistance button for help.
You can walk to the terminal from the car park in 3-5 minutes.
On your return, when leaving the car park please drive up to the exit barrier where the camera will read your number plate and the barrier will rise. If you have any problems, please press the assistance button for help.
The car park is regularly patrolled and protected by CCTV, as well as entry and exit barriers.
Long Stay Car Park has no disabled facilities; therefore, we recommend taking a look at the Meet and Greet which is more accessible for those with reduced mobility.
You choose your space, park your car and keep your keys.
If you're delayed coming back, you'll need to pay for the extra parking before you go at the car park's normal rate. The amount will be based on the calculated difference tracked by the cameras at the car park and will display on the screen by the exit barrier. This is more expensive than the price you pay when you book in advance.
If you come back early, unfortunately you won't be given a refund for the time you've not used.
Long Stay Car Park does not accept trailers.
The car park service desk is located in the Meet and Greet car park at the Priority reception. If you need any help on the day, please make your way to the desk or call 01446712604 to speak to a member of the team.
Long Stay Non-Flexible
Because this is a special low-price package, once you've made your booking, you can't change it, and you won't be able to get a refund if you need to cancel.
Car park surface is poor. Barrier to exit did not work first time, had to approach a second barrier to exit.

I was pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. Somewhat nervous before hand about relying on a "number plate recognition system" to gain access to car park-but it worked perfectly.

Really quick and easy. No bother at all, would definitely use again.

Good to be able to park so close to the airport and at a reasonable charge. However, it was hammering down with rain when we arrived and it would have been nice to have a bus take us the five minutes or so to the terminal, rather than us getting soaked.

Directions to car park were okay but the final stages were inaccurate. There are also two different long stay car parks and this was not clearly distinguished.
The instructions on arrival at the car park barrier need to be clearer too. There is an information board with excessive text, too much to read when driving and a sticker on the ticket machine before the barrier which confused me sufficiently to entice me to put my credit card it. It later transpired that I shouldn't have done this as we would have been charged twice, something I managed to rectify on our return. Your instructions simply state, take a ticket, it would be more helpful if they also told you not to insert you credit card.
Location of the car park is ideal as it was a 5 minute walk to the terminal.
I would use the car park again and would book through Airport Parking Shop as I am now familiar with the route to the car park and ticket instructions.
