Spending the night at the airport

Cardiff airport's small terminal is open 24 hours a day, so you can spend the night inside the airport and it's fairly quiet. However, there is no on-site accommodation, so you may need to look for alternative options if you plan to stay.

Where to rest: The seats are made of metal and not very comfortable, so it is advisable to bring a sleeping bag or mat if you prefer to lie on the floor. There is a VIP lounge in the Departures Hall which offers more comfort, but it is closed at night. There are a number of nearby hotels below.

Baggage: There are no lockers or luggage storage facilities in the terminal.

Eating and drinking: The food outlets available are closed at night.

Wi-Fi: Free for 2 hours.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, baby changing facilities, prayer room.
