Cardiff Airport Official Meet and Greet

Just so easy and straightforward. Helpful staff at Cardiff airport.

Mrs Evans, 25 Sep, 2022 (5 out of 5)

Long Stay

I would book parking in Cardiff again but never the lounge too busy and not maned enough

Mr Barnes, 25 Sep, 2022 (4 out of 5)

Cardiff Airport Official Meet and Greet

Meet and greet Cardiff needs better signposting - easy to get in wrong lane. Rest of parking process straightforward and quick including return.

Mr Grinnell, 20 Sep, 2022 (5 out of 5)

Long Stay

I was booked into Cardiff Wales airport parking. On arrival the carparks had moved since I was last there and it appeared that my car couldn't enter. I tried contacting holiday extras but could only do so via live chat. As time was ticking live chat asked me for security details (understandably) including my booking reference which I couldn't access while on live chat. I eventually received help from airport staff and everything went well thereafter. So, booking, amending and price with Holiday Extras was easy and a good experience but I feel the comunication process could be improved

Mr Richards, 20 Sep, 2022 (4.5 out of 5)

Cardiff Airport Official Meet and Greet

Meet and greet was excellent at Cardiff Airport. Would definitely book again and recommend.

*Please note: these prices were live at the time of writing for 5 days' parking, but they may jump up and down a little throughout the year according to availability and season.

What is a Short Stay car park?

Generally, travellers opt for short stay car parks because they will only be away for a short period, however there is no maximum amount of time that you can book for. One popular aspect of Cardiff's Short Stay is that you can walk straight to departures from the car park.

Where do you pick up at Cardiff Airport?

To pick up passengers at Cardiff Airport, visit one of the pick up or drop off points. To be closest to the Terminal, pay £1 for 10 minutes in the Short Stay car park. For a cheaper option, head to the Long Stay 1 to get 20 minutes' FREE parking.

Cardiff Airport Short Stay Parking

Cardiff's Short Stay car park is great for convenient official on-airport parking, just a short walk from the terminal. Here at Holiday Extras, we always recommend booking your parking ahead of time to avoid high prices.

Start your
holiday early

Cardiff airport hotel stay plus 1 week parking from just £96.43.
