What can we help you with?

I haven't taken a Via ride yet - why was I charged?

When you create a Via account, we need to confirm your credit or debit card is valid, so you may see a $1 pre-authorization charge on your card. That charge is immediately voided, so don’t worry, you are never actually charged, and the $1 is never deducted from your account!  

If this is the first time you are booking with a new card you may see an authorization in the amount of your requested ride. Rest assured, if you opted not to book the ride this hold will be removed from your account in 3-7 business days depending on your bank or credit card company's processing times.
