What Are My Options to Pay for a Bail Bond?


Most bail bond companies give you a variety of choices when it comes to paying for a bond. Your options can include: cash, credit cards, debit cards, checks, money orders, bail financing, or collateral bonds. Collateral bonds are a good option if you don’t have the cash upfront to pay for your bail bond; in these cases, you can put up something of value—like property, jewellery, or electronics—in place of cash.

Can a Bail Agent Discount the Fees on the Premium?

The rate that you pay a bail agent isn’t determined by them but depends on the state’s statutes and regulations. Some states can legally charge eight percent while others are unable to charge less than 10%. If a bail bond agency offers you a discount on their fee, they may risk losing their license altogether. Some companies may try to mislead you into believing that they’re giving you a discount when in reality you end up paying the full amount. If you ever question whether you’re being overcharged, simply ask to look at a rate chart for reference.
