Alternatives To Taking The Car
Taking the car is not the only option available if your flying from Cardiff. With improved public transport connections there are many ways to travel to Cardiff Wales Airport.
Traws Cymru (The Cardiff Airport Express Bus Service)
The new Cardiff Airport Express runs from Cardiff City Centre to Cardiff Airport.
Buses run every 20 minutes and tickets cost £5.
You can find out more about this bus service via the Traws Cymru website.
Getting a Hackney Carriage to the terminal can be far cheaper, particularly if your going to be away for some time.
Popular Local Taxi Companies
A WARNING! The official taxi service at Cardiff Airport is Checker Cars, perfectly decent service but quite expensive! Pre-booking a hackney with a local firm is a better bet.
Travelling To Cardiff Airport From Further Afield?

Traveline Cymru is a free service that allows anyone to plan a journey via car, bus, train or a mix of all three.

There are a number of ways to get the best deal for Highwayman Parking.
Note: If you do go down the voucher code route, you will be booking with either Park & Go or APH - both are good companies, I booked the Wagon & Horses at Bristol with Park & Go and had no problems at all.
A Warning About Voucher Codes!
Quite a few voucher code websites are actually fake. They only wish to push you to book with a company via an Affiliate Link with no real reason why they should collect a commission.
The two promotional code websites listed above are good examples of where you can get genuine codes. They are still affiliate websites but atleast they do what they say on the tin. (You get a nice discount on your booking)
Money Saving Expert (Martin Lawrence)
A lengthy and superb guide to airport parking is available via the Money Saving Expert website:
Although it's more geared towards parking at the big airports, (Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester) it's still worth a look as some of the principles are the same and the savings can be huge indeed!
Another Option (Park @ My House)
Park at my house offers a way for people to rent out driveways, garages and locked compounds to anyone who needs a place to park.
There are some quality 5 star sellers located close to the terminal at Cardiff Airport, prices start at around £5.50 a day: Have A Look Here.
Don't forget you can book parking at our Heathrow Airport Parking website too.
