When you arrive, make sure you are in the car you made your booking with. As you approach the entry barrier, don't take a ticket as a camera will read your number plate and the barrier will raise. If there are any problems, press the assistance button for help.

From there, it's a 2-5 minute walk to the terminal.

On your return to Cardiff

On leaving the car park, drive up to the exit barrier where the camera will read your number plate and confirm your stay. The barrier will then raise so you can leave the car park. If there are any problems, press the assistance button for help.

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.
