The closest car park to the terminal. Park up and stroll to check-in.

Need to know

Short Stay is right on the airport grounds, around a 2-5 minute walk to the terminal. It's great for travellers with reduced mobility too, with dedicated assistance on hand at all times.

When you arrive the barrier will rise automatically, allowing you to drive in and park. Then you just need to walk to the terminal, keeping your keys with you while you're away.


Short Stay has designated Blue Badge bays for travellers with reduced mobility, along with a Special Assistance call point which is linked to the terminal's service desk. There's also a sheltered area where you can wait for them to meet you.


The car park is secured by:

  • Entry and exit barriers
  • CCTV
  • Regular staff patrols

The small print

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of 3 hours at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £15 per day. This is subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles/not minibuses) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).

Getting to and from Cardiff airport

Arriving at the car park

When you reach the car park the cameras will recognise your number plate and the barrier will rise.

Drive in and find a space to park your car, then you need to make your way to the terminal. It's walkable in around 2-5 minutes. You'll keep hold of your keys while you're away.

Returning to the car park

When you return head back to the car park and pick up your car. The barrier will rise automatically on your way out, allowing you to drive home.
