Location information for Cardiff

Introduction

Cardiff is the capital of Wales and until recently mainly known as industrial center. That has changed in the last few years: the center was tidied up and large part was turned into a pedestrian zone. The city is mainly visited by people interested in the history and culture of Wales, but also by shoppers: Cardiff has developed into a shopping paradise.

Population

The city has almost 350,000 inhabitants.

Location

Cardiff is located in the southeast of Wales on the wide Severn Estuary which turns into the Bristol Channel. The natural harbor is called Cardiff Bay or Tiger Bay. On the north, east and west side the city is bounded by hills, the highest being the Garth Hill (307 meters).

Economy

The local economy once revolved around Cardiff's port, which was mainly used to ship coal from the mines north of town. The extraction of coal has disappeared and with that the importance of the port. Financial services, metalworking, production of cars and mechanics nowadays form the pillars of the economy. Cardiff also focuses more and more on tourism; it's one of the most popular shopping destinations in Great Britain.

Airports

Cardiff Airport is Wales' only international airport. It's situated 16 kilometers southwest of town. The airport is easiest reachable by rental car via freeway A48 which runs north of town. At Culverhouse Cross you then turn to Port Road which leads to the airport.

Public Transport

The city has an excellent network of city buses which also run to destinations further out like Newport, Barry and Cardiff International Airport. In summer months the River Taff Waterbus transports passengers between the Millennium Stadium, Cardiff Bay and Penarth. Bus companies National Express and Megabus maintain connections with cities even further out, including Swansea, London, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Manchester.

Traffic and Parking

A large part of Cardiff's center is a pedestrian zone. There are several parking garages, owned by the government or privately owned. The municipal parking garages Castle Mews, North Road and Sophia Gardens are in the city center. In Cardiff Bay there are for example Havannah Street Garage and Barrage Car Park. P+R areas can be found near County Hall and Crown Way.

Hotels

Cardiff has a good choice of accommodations; most of them in the city center and near Cardiff Bay. There are basic guesthouses, midrange hotels and luxurious accommodations. Bear in mind that hotel rooms are hard to come by when there's a big event at the Millennium Stadium, especially when the national rugby or soccer team are playing.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? Our rates are all-inclusive. Our reservation department will inform you in advance should additional costs apply. You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by EasyTerra Car Rental? at this location
