As can be seen in the table above, the fees of park and ride car parks at Cardiff airport with shuttle services tend to be lower than the official airport car parks. They usually offer the shuttle rides for free to and from the airport. These shuttles are often as quick as the walk from the official car parks, and without having to carry bulky luggage, can be more convenient too.

With shuttle buses running every 15 minutes and taking just 7 minutes to get from the car park to the airport, you will be sure to reach the terminal in time for your flight.
