For the first time in 3 years we are flying from Cardiff airport at the end of May. I went to their new web site (not impressed) and was staggered to find, that at the daily rate, my 8 day stay would cost me £65.50 as the page say unless you pre-book. There were no links to pre-book parking so I rang the airport. For parking enquiries I was redirected to NCP who want to charge £82.50 for 8 days pre-booked! I also ran a quote on the NCP web site and it still comes to £82.50. I’ve sent an email to the airport asking how they justify their charges but I’m not holding my breath on getting a reply. Just to compare the prices with other airports I was quoted £47.59 at Bristol and £38.85 at Birmingham and thats for onsite parking at their long stay car parks. I know I can get it cheaper parking offsite as my cheapest quote is for £34.99 but I don’t like leaving my keys and having to phone / wait for buses.
Over the years I’ve noticed that Cardiff flight supplements were among the biggest and now it looks as if they want the most expensive car parking to match.
