Bodyguards on an average charge between $20 to $65 per hour. In New York City, the average is $65/hour whereas their counterparts in L.A. charge around $25/hour. If you need a bodyguard who is also a driver, the unarmed ones charge around $300 - $500 a day and the armed ones can cost upwards of $500 per day. If you need your bodyguard to accompany you overseas, expect to dish out around $900 a day along with travel and accommodation expenses. It would be wise to not be stringent with your budget because the lives of you and your family are at stake. My years of experience have taken me all around the United States and also overseas, including Brazil, France, and Germany.
