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.
