    They have been around for ages. Recently moved to a new site south of the Airport. Good service, I have always found them reliable, and option for a car valet while you are away...

    More Bristol Airport

    Another one for Bristol airport. I've used these folks before:

    http://www.goblincombefarm.com/

    It's a family run farm that have been doing parking at Bristol for 25 years, a nice bunch of people based in a lane round the back of the airport, with a nice and easy little online booking facility on the website. They offer a meet-n-greet service, and undercover parking too if you have a swanky car!!

    If you're going away for the weekend you could be paying £30 or more for the "official" silver zone parking at the airport even with a discount (And last time I used this it took nearly an hour from parking up to getting into the airport terminal, despite them being next door!). By comparison I paid just £17 at Goblin Combe and it really was 10 minutes away.

    Hello (first ever post!) heres my tip for parking at Bristol

    personally I hate the Silver Zone car park (miles away, takes ages, have to hand over keys) and much prefer on-site (they call it long stay) - can literally walk to terminal in 4/5 mins - but its a bit dearer

    So. . . join this travel rewards thing

    http://www.bristolairport.co.uk/travelrewards.aspx

    free (just id & password)

    every month they email you a code which gives you (about 10%?) a discount
    which you enter on the website when booking, obviously

    this makes the on-site parking about the same price as the dreaded Silver Zone (off-site) one

    cheers!

    Cheap Parking at Bristol Airport
    • #8
    • 6th Aug 08, 5:46 PM
    Like Tom Strickland weve used the Airport Tavern which is good. however the 1st place we discovered, is at Coombe Garage Tel:07900492559. if you have an early flight they have accomodation at a nearby Golf Club. They, like the airport tavern, drop off and pick up in a minibus, and we are usually on the road back home well before those using the onsite parking (and its £25 for a week!!)

    HAs ANYONE DISCOVERED SIMILAR FOR CARDIFF AIRPORT.

    Cymru am Byth!!!!

    We always use a parking company based at The Waggon & Horses they are about two minutes away, there website is:-www.bristolholidayairpark.co.uk.
  • tonyrodwell
    make sure you get the web address correct
    I logged on and typing from memory(ha ha!) put in .co.uk instead of dot com.
    It comes up with a load of more expensive parking options and has nothing to do with the genuine .com site.so just beware.

    Cardiff Airport parking - The Highwayman Inn do parking (www.highwayman-parking.com) which is only 5 mins away from the airport. Don't know how much it is as I've never used it - I live nearby - but the food and beer is good.

    Bristol Airport
    Have just used Bristol Airport Premier parking, cheap it is not..... but compared to the rush for the bus and the queue for keys this has to be the best. Silver Zone is just not an option!

    I have also tried various local car parks and all are very pleasant and cheaper but none are as flexible or convenient.

    I would definitely use it again in the future with the added bonus of a discount. Thanks lordbuckethead for the link.

    Important info re FHR at Bristol airport: Travelling in Aug 08, on arrival there was nothing to indicate where to park the car. When trying to find out the info the man behind the counter was more interested in his fag than talking to us. There was no queueing system and we were pushed in front of by other people (difficult to avoid when coping with our two young children). The mini bus had room for only 7 passengers, we had to wait approx 40 mins before the third mini bus was able to take us. We had put our luggage into the 2nd mini bus but had to take it out again as other passengers had taken the seats! On the way back we had to wait another 40 mins to be picked up. Not good enough, FHR do not do what they claim to do in our experience. Shocking service which I will be going out of my way to tell other people not to use. Also, poor security, anyone could drive in past reception.

    I should take my own advice. This time I didn't use WCP for Bristol Airport Parking. We flew on a late evening flight to Ireland and wanted the convenience of on-airport parking because we have a 3 year old and were after minimum hassle.

    WCP for the period we were away would be about £25. We paid £43 and went Silver-zone. Drop off was fine - I left my wife and sleeping daughter at the terminal then drove round to Silver, left the car in a space really near the reception area and was onto the bus and back at the terminal in about 5 minutes.

    On return we waited 15 minutes for the bus, waited 5 minutes in the key queue then had to walk the length of the pickup area (about 200 yards with suitcases + tired daughter) to get our car which I had originally left about 20 yards from the reception area. Not much sense in that system!

    When we got into the car my seat was pumped all the way up to the roof (I hate people !!!!!!ing about with the seat, especially height) and the heating was on 27 degrees for both sides. The Radio was on Radio 3. I'm thinking now that someone has left my car running and had a nice cosy snooze with classical music on.

    Not happy. Won't be using them again!

    Bristol Airport Parking
    I've used the airport car parks many times and a few of the other, smaller operators. Definately wont be using any of the local pubs or car parks again! used a car park about 10 miles away from the airport at the start of summer and wished I hadnt.. impossible to find and appeared to be part of a farm. No security and very amateur. Not had any problems on the airports car parks and normally use Silver Zone. always book as far in advance as possible as you could save quite a bit - www.bristolairport.co.uk

    We always park on site at Cardiff Airport. Search for discount codes if you are not an AA member to get 15-20% off APH price. You are within walking distance of the terminal or you can get on the shuttle bus. You park your car yourself so no handing the keys over.

    With discount it's as cheap as Highwayman and more convienent.

    Back to MotoringDiscounts.co.uk

    Book airport parking through this site and you get 20% discount if you are a member of any breakdown body. I'm with autoaid so I entered my autoaid member number and had the 20% discount. It was cheaper for Bristol Airport than going through the AA site (I used to be a member before I saw the light)
