Affordable Ignition Interlocks and Fees

Affordable Ignition Interlocks and Fees

If you’re in the market for an affordable ignition interlock device, you’re probably scouring the internet trying to figure out how much it will cost. In your search, you see companies who say that they have the “cheapest” car breathalyzer. However, as an industry, you will find that most devices are comparable in cost.

We understand that cost is an important factor in making a decision about which ignition interlock provider to choose. Many shoppers may even be wondering why they should choose Intoxalock, but there are many other considerations to having an IID a seamless experience outside of just price. You’ll want to choose a reputable provider known for their easy-to-use device and look for access to 24/7 customer support so that you can reach out in the event of an issue.

The Value of Reliability

Intoxalock ignition interlocks are state-approved devices that have a long-standing reputation of accuracy, ease of use and affordability. There is a reason we are an industry leader: Intoxalock devices have extremely reliable technology and fair pricing. They are also backed by a network of fully trained service centers that will install your interlock device and teach you how to use it. Intoxalock is here to serve our customers, providing resources to help budget for your breathalyzer and helping you navigate your drunk driving conviction. Customers continue to choose Intoxalock for these three reasons (plus many more!).

Examining Price

At Intoxalock, we offer competitive and affordable ignition interlock pricing in all states. To avoid hidden fees, we provide all-inclusive pricing that outlines exactly what you’ll pay each month. Our monthly pricing includes a Device Protection Plan that covers the cost of replacing your device in these scenarios:

  • Accidental damage
  • Car accidents
  • Natural disasters
  • Theft

This plan helps you save money and provides peace of mind that you won’t have to pay to replace the device — about $1,500 — in situations you can’t control.

Bi-Weekly Payments

If you need to make two smaller payments per month rather than one large payment, Intoxalock offers a bi-weekly payment plan. We developed this payment option after receiving customer requests for a plan that better aligned with their pay periods. When you call to set up your account, you can request the bi-weekly payment option.

Financial Assistance

Residents in some states may qualify for financial assistance with the cost of their ignition interlock device. Factors that help determine qualification include:

  • Household income
