It’s handy for those who want fast access to the terminal, but it will come with a cost premium over the likes of off-airport park and ride services – see the following section.

Users typically drive to the car park, search for space, unload their bags and take a short walk to the terminal area.

Off-airport parking: How it works

Off-airport is the ideal form of parking in many ways; both cost-effective and safe if booked through a reputable supplier such as APH.

These off-airport – or Park & Ride – services from the likes of Highwayman Parking offer the go-to solution for savvy travellers flying from Cardiff Airport.

Off-airport parking is easy to use, too. Drive to the car park – located five minutes from the terminal building – where your car will be parked for you in a security-protected facility as you jump on a shuttle ride to the check-in desks.

This type of parking purchased through APH means your vehicle will be cared for in a security-protected car park while you travel. Measures include CCTV, security fencing and barriers along with manned patrols.
