With a Broome Airport car hire, you must have a valid driver's licence that’s at least 12 months old. You will also need a valid form of identification, either a passport or a photo ID. A credit card with an expiration date of at least three months after the return date of your car will be required as a means of payment. Major car hire companies like Avis and Budget may allow the use of a debit card, but you will need to pay a security deposit.
Before you depart from Broome Airport, you must familiarise yourself with the road rules. For example, everyone must wear a seat belt in both the front and back of the vehicle. Children below five years must be held in an approved child restraint. Drunk driving is a significant offence in Australia; hence a driver's blood alcohol level should be less than 0.05%. It is illegal to use your phone even when stopped at a red light. Always drive on the left side of the road, and look out for the speed signs, since overspeeding is a major offence in Australia.
