Cardiff Airport Short Stay



Leave the M4 at junction 29 and join the A48(M) towards the airport. Take the third exit at the first roundabout, the second exit at the second roundabout and then the second exit at the third roundabout onto the A4050. Take the second exit at the next six roundabouts, then the second exit at the seventh roundabout onto the A4226, and the second exit at the eighth roundabout. At the ninth roundabout, take the first exit onto Port Road, into the airport complex. Stay in the right hand lane and drive into the Short Stay car park.


Arrival procedure

Take a ticket at the entry barrier, drive in and park your car, then just walk to the terminal. You should keep the ticket in a safe place, as you'll need it when you come back. You should also bring a copy of your booking confirmation to the car park with you.


Return procedure

You'll need to validate your ticket at the NCP desk in arrivals, then catch the shuttle bus back to the car park from outside the terminal. Drive to the exit barrier and put your ticket in the slot to get out. Don't put your credit card in, in case you're mistakenly charged twice.



The car park is patrolled by security staff 24 hours a day and is protected by CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a high fence.




Disabled facilities

There are parking spaces for Blue Badge holders near the front of the car park.


Additional information

There are no vehicle size restrictions.


Short 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.

Cardiff Airport Short Stay reviews

Our average review score for Cardiff Airport Short Stay parking is 4.0 from 1 review.

"I approached from the west and it was not easy to work out how to get in. Having to drive on, take a ticket and then move on to the next gate to insert the ticket was not what I was expecting. Other than that it was by far the most convenient place to park."
