There are many flying brooms in the world of Harry Potter, like the Nimbus series, the Cleansweep series, the Firebolt etc.

However, I didn't find any concrete information about which broom is the costliest of all.
I understand that some brooms will be best for some situations or people. But still I want to know which broom is the most expensive.

    By "now" do you mean as of the end of book 7? I guess it would probably be a Firebolt. Commented Dec 18, 2016 at 14:23
  • By "now" means after quidditch through the ages and fantastic beasts and where to find them and.. I think you get the drift.

    If I was to downvote, I'd downvote for apparrent lack of any up-to-date canon information whatsoever. Commented Dec 18, 2016 at 15:57

    @vap78 the question now asks for the most expensive broom. There may not be an answer in cannon, but it is not opinion based.

1 Answer 1


While we do not know the individual prices, the following five brooms were used during the last (2014) Quidditch World Cup, and were probably among the most expensive brooms of the time.

  • Varápidos
  • Starsweeper XXI
  • Yajirushi
  • Firebolt Supreme
  • Thunderbolt VII

It is of course very possible that the market has somewhat chaged over the past two years, but that is the most up-to-date info that J.K. Rowling has provided us.
