Cardiff Airport by Road vs Rail, Coach or Taxi

Your flight is booked, you’re ready to go. Now what’s the best way to get to the airport? There are many possibilities, but what if you have the whole family in tow, or you’re loaded down with bags? Well how about this for an idea - take your own car? Pre-book a long term stay at Airparks Cardiff and pay just £33.99 for 8 days. It’s the ultimate door to door service and you’re at the wheel.

Still not convinced? Here are some other options


Trains run between Bridge End, Cardiff central and Cardiff International Airport, once an hour in each direction. Taking the train is a reliable and affordable way to get to Cardiff Airport, but again, if you’re travelling with young children or loaded down with bags, it’s not the most relaxed way to go, especially if you’re travelling to Cardiff Airport at peak times when railway station platforms are packed with commuters.


There are frequent National Express coach services to Cardiff Airport from Cardiff Central, but this of course means a separate journey into the city centre, which could mean a cab ride, an added expense not factored in. Then there’s the journey back from the airport to home. What seemed like a small inconvenience when you were flying out becomes a huge headache when you’re jetlagged or tired and just want to get home.


In terms of convenience, getting to Cardiff Airport by taxi is probably the next best thing to taking your own car. But when the taxi arrives at the door, you must be ready to go. Taking your own car means you can load in the likes of heavy bags or push chairs hours before you need to go. It’s also a mobile storage unit. If you decide at the last minute not to take something on the flight, you can just leave it safe and secure in the boot.
