BAIL BOND FEES ARE SET BY LAW
In California, the cost of a bail bond is set by law.
Each and every agent in California writes for an insurance company that has a filed rate with the Department of Insurance. The agent must charge you that filed rate (typically 10% of the bond amount) and most insurance companies have comparable rates. For example, if the full bail amount is $25,000, which is the average bond in southern California, typically your cost is 10% or $2,500. There should not be any hidden fees or taxes from the bail bond company. This makes it easy because as a consumer shopping for a bail bond, you don’t need to call multiple bail bond companies to rates. At our company you’re always going to get the state approved rates.
