Do I need a credit card to hire a car?

Yes you do require a credit card to hire a vehicle for security purposes only. We ask for a $100.00 authorisation as security ($500.00 for Debit Cards).

If you choose to pay with credit then you will incur a 1.9% surcharge, we accept CHQ, SAV or cash as alternative payments to waive this fee.

Are Broome Broome vehicles insured?

Yes. All vehicles are fully insured for fire, theft, single and multiple vehicle accident damage. There is an insurance excess applicable to every hire. This means that if the vehicle sustains any damage whilst on hire, the hirer is responsible for the cost of repair up to the amount of the excess. There is an option to reduce the insurance excess on the vehicle by paying an excess reduction fee. The insurance excess and the reduction fee vary according to the type of vehicle. It is advisable to accept the excess reduction fee, as it reduces the cost to the hirer in the event of an accident.


Are there any additional charges or taxes?

GST (Goods & Services Tax) is included in the daily rate quoted.

The only additional charge is a Vehicle Registration Recovery Fee of $7.80 per day applicable to every hire.
