Are you looking to bail a friend or family member out of jail, but the cost is just too expensive? If so, you probably appreciate getting a discount, thus making your loved one’s bail more affordable. You may think getting a discount is impossible, but it is not. Some bail bond companies can give you a discount on the price of your loved one’s bail bond if you qualify. All you have to do is ask.
In California, bail bonds will always cost 10% of your loved one’s bail by default. This means, if your loved one’s bail is set at $10,000, the bail bond will cost $1,000. That is just a simple example, and a lot of the time, the bail bond can cost a lot more than that, which is why many people want a discount.
Some bail bond companies can offer you a 20% discount on the bail bond. This means that instead of paying 10% of your loved one’s bail, you only have to pay 8%. If you were to get this discount on the same bail bond as before, you would only have to pay $800, not $1,000. That is a savings of $200, and with larger bail bonds, this will be an even bigger discount.
To qualify for this discount, you, or one of your co-signers, needs to be one of the following: a union member, a member of the military, a member of AARP, or a homeowner. You can also qualify for the discount if the loved one who you are bailing out has a private attorney.
If you want this discount, you need to find a bail bond company that offers it, like Downtown San Francisco Bail Bond Store. If one of your co-signers meets one of the necessary requirements, we will be more than happy to give you a discount on your loved one’s bail bond.
