Serving predominately South Wales, but also Mid and West Wales, Cardiff Airport is in the village of Rhoose, approx. 12 miles from Cardiff city centre. The Airport extends back to the early 1940s, when land in the rural Vale of Glamorgan was requisitioned by the Air Ministry to set up a wartime satellite aerodrome and training base for Spitfire pilots, RAF Rhoose. After WW2 the airfield was abandoned.

 

It has been owned by the Welsh Government since 2013 and in 2016 passenger numbers stood at around 1.3 million making it the 20th busiest airport in the UK in terms of passenger numbers.

Highwayman Security Park

We have used this service several times before and never had a problem the outward transfer to the airport was to the normal excellent standard no issues. The return transport however was like sitting behind a driver with serious issues as soon as we left the car park he was red lining every gear he was very quick over the speed bumps swerved a man at the last second who was walking on the road pulling a suitcase behind then slammed the brakes on at the roundabout he then continued to red line each gear even though the narrow lanes he drove aggressively and forced other vehicles over to the side of the road he had a radio message as we were approaching the complex from somebody who said they were back by the office to which he replied I am almost back there were two ladies on the bus with us who also looked very scared I can only assume that he was possibly in charge of the office and is not a driver which would account for his shocking driving I have always promoted this service as it has always been excellent however after this experience I will not be doing this again and I doubt I will be using this service again

Although the highway man security parking was a bit out if the way. We would use them again as the booking from the beginning was not only quick but helpful at reception and was most importantly the transfer bus was waiting for us when we got back late in the night which goes a long at for us. Great service and good value.
