If you want to get an idea of the price range before talking to a representative, you are out of luck, as they do not offer instant quotes. To receive a quote, you will need to reach out to the dealership you visited. Fidelity does not provide direct quotes or contracts as sold by the dealership.
Depending on your vehicle's mileage, make, model, and coverage, the price will vary. While they don't advertise their prices, customers have reported paying around $2,500 per policy plan.
Their deductibles can be around $0, $50, $100, or $250; the lower the deductible, the more it will cost.
Fidelity does not deal with its customers directly, so if you want to receive a quote or have any questions or concerns, you will have to talk to a dealership that deals with Fidelity.
If the dealership you are dealing with is out of business, you can contact Fidelity directly. To reach them, call +1-800-327-5172 during business hours.
Fidelity Warranty Services provides vehicle service contracts; they do not deal with customers directly; you must obtain them through one of their 3,800 dealerships across the country. Fidelity vehicle warranties come in two programs: plans for vehicles with under 120,000 miles and plans for high-mileage vehicles.
