Bail Bond Rates

Bail bonds in the state of Florida is regulated by the Department of Financial Services. Every bail bond agency must charge the same fee for a bail bond. Licensed bail bond agents are strictly prohibited from charging more or charging less.

Bail bond premiums in Florida are ten percent (10%) of the bail amount, per charge, for bail of $1,000 and higher. If the bail is under $1,000 per charge, the minimum premium amount is $100. Rates are calculated per charge and not on the total bail amount of all charges combined. For example, the premium for a defendant with 3 charges of a $500 bail amount each, the premium would be $300.00 ($100 per charge) and not $150.00 (10% of $1,500).

The premium is a non-refundable fee for the services of providing a surety bond on behalf of the defendant. Once the bond is posted and accepted by the jail or court, the bail bond premium is fully earned and non-refundable.
