How much does it cost for a locksmith to open your car door?

I locked my keys in my car. How much will a locksmith cost?

The moment that you realize you’ve locked your keys in your car is definitely super stressful. A locksmith should be able to help you out though—and it might even be covered under your insurance!
Generally, locksmiths will charge $50 to $150 to open your car door. But if you need to rekey your car (i.e., if you lost your keys), the price could be anywhere from $50 to $300.
If this price seems a little steep, don’t panic! Many roadside assistance programs and some insurance policies will actually cover a locksmith fee. So it’s worth checking with both to see if you can save some cash.
If you’re unhappy with your insurance policy or feel like you should be paying less, go to Jerry.
