Discount Ventura Bail
People will often call our office wanting to know if they can negotiate the cost of a bail bond. Some ask if we can offer a lower rate if they pay up front, in cash. Others will call and let us know right away that they are shopping around to see who can give them the best deal.
What most people don’t know is that bail is a regulated industry. Every Ventura bail bondsman is required to be licensed through the California Department of Insurance. The Department of Insurance, not individual company owners, sets the rules and regulations as to how bail bonds companies are allowed operate, the ways in which they are permitted to advertise and even the rate they are allowed to charge their clients.
No matter how many Ventura bail bonds companies you call, every bondsman will quote you the same rate: 10%. If you wish to bail a friend or family member out of a Ventura jail and their bail is $20,000, you can expect to pay $2,000 to purchase a bail bond. If someone tries to charge you more than that, or if they say they can offer you the “cheapest rate in town”, they are breaking the law.

5% Bail Bonds
In some cases, bail bonds companies try to get creative with their advertising. They will post big signs offering 5% bail bonds or even 2% bail bonds. This is a little more than “bait and switch” marketing. They use that type of advertising to get people through the door, yet once the client is sitting across the desk from the bondsman they find out that this is simply the required down payment if they wish to participate in a payment plan. At the end of the day, they still need to pay 10%.
In situations like this the biggest priority is getting the person they care for out of jail as fast as possible. Instead of getting angry about being deceived, they simply sign on the dotted line. This, unfortunately, leaves many people with a bad taste in their mouth when it comes to bondsmen.
