When planning your journey to or from Cardiff Airport, you'll need to decide which method of transport will be best. Will you organise a car to hire, or opt for a chauffeur or taxi service? If available to you, car hire is a great option as there is no restriction on baggage, it's more reliable than public transport and you can split the cost between all passengers.
Having a car means you can drive the 12 miles to Cardiff City Centre, or perhaps venture deeper into Wales to see the scenic beaches of the Mumbles in Swansea or Pembrokeshire. Wales is a beautiful country and hiring a car means you can make the most of your time there with visits to places which you cannot access by public transport with as much ease.
There are 5 car hire providers located at Cardiff Airport and you can find their desks both inside the terminal and outside the arrivals hall.
