Free parking in the cities can be difficult to find and paid for parking can be expensive. Try to use the park and ride schemes where available to avoid congestion and save time and money.
There is plenty of paid parking in the smaller towns and villages. In the cities you’ll find limited time free parking on the street, metered parking, parking in parking lots and in garages including multi-storey car parks. Prices in cities like Cardiff, Newport and Swansea can be more expensive.
Enforcement of parking is done by traffic wardens and sometimes the police and they are very efficient. You’ll receive a parking ticket with a fine, can be clamped or towed away.
Your disabled driver scheme blue badge will entitle you to the usual benefits in municipal car parks but check private ones for any restrictions.
