KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Broome

  • Stay updated on road conditions while driving your hire car in Broome, especially if you're visiting in the monsoon season, between January and March. Be prepared to go slower than the speed limit in wet conditions and never drive through flood waters. There may be official road closures during these months, particularly on unsealed roads. You should also keep an eye on the local tide charts, as this will affect flooding levels. The conditions can change dramatically with little notice, particularly at floodways and creek crossings.
  • Cheap car hire in Broome allows you to not only easily visit Cable Beach but also drive on the beach itself. The speed limit is 15 km/h, and you must drive between the high and low water mark. Bear in mind there are a few areas where access is more limited, such as at Gantheaume Point, but there are always clear signs indicating where you can and can't drive. You also can't drive in sand dunes or lagoon areas. Despite it being such a popular activity, Cable Beach is so large that it's easy to find room to drive and a quiet spot to set up for a day at the beach.
  • If you plan on taking a longer road trip, Western Australia has hundreds of rest stops where you can take a break. Check the local laws if you plan on sleeping overnight or taking a nap in your car. It's generally legal to sleep in your car in Western Australia, but some local councils have laws against it and there are often restrictions when it comes to parks and beaches. Rest stops are a simple way to take a break, and they often have toilets, changing rooms and picnic areas. Most rest stops allow you to stay for up to 24 hours.
  • Famed for countless pristine beaches stretching along the Kimberley coast, hiring a car in Broome will let you drive the coastline and appreciate the beauty of the pearling town. Scenic spots such as Gantheaume Point and Cable Beach are within a 10min drive from the city centre, though they are not connected by public buses. Willie Creek Pearl Farm is another popular attraction that is best reached by a 4x4 car, as high tides make alternative travel unreliable. The weather in Broome stays balmy throughout the year and having access to a hire car means you won’t have to wait in the sun for public transport to arrive. Bus services are the only public transport operated in Broome and they finish at approximately 19:00, meaning a hire car is your best option for exploring the city at night.
  • Car hire companies have their reception desks situated inside the terminal at Broome International Airport (BME). Directly across from Arrivals, you’ll find Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz and Thrifty. The small-scale nature of the airport ensures it’s a short walk to your vehicle in the car park.
  • If you plan on picking up a 4x4 and doing some off-road driving in Broome, ensure your hire car contract includes coverage for unpaved roads. Adhere to weather conditions and take caution on wet sand if there has been rain. As traffic is irregular in certain areas of town, it's recommended to use headlights to alert oncoming traffic during both daytime and nighttime. Keep an eye out for wildlife and cattle which have a tendency to move across fields and obstruct roads after dark.
  • Relaxed and calm, traffic in Broome is unlikely to affect your journey. Even in peak holiday periods, the roads are easy to navigate with minimal congestion outside of Carnarvon St and Old Broome Rd. Be mindful that Broome can experience heavy rainfall during the wet season and reduced speeds are recommended to handle the slippery roads.

The staff were very friendly and helpful. I was able to extend my booking an extra 2 days over the phone. Thankfully they gave us the option to take the full insurance package, in the end it proved worth the extra expense as a truck tossed a stone at our windscreen about 2km from the return drop off. I can't believe we travelled 1100km without incident, I was so upset about the crack but happy we were encouraged to take the zero excess insurance at the same time. Thank you for your great customer service 👍

The staff member who served us was new and had trouble processing the booking, additional drivers etc. The car had a standout scratch/dent on the back left side door, i found this unusual for a hire car. It should have been repaired after it happened as i feel it had been done a while back, i am sure the insurance would have been collected. The hire price to me was excessive, highest i have ever paid in Broome.
