What can we help you with?

My driver was great! How can I thank them?

Our driver partners are the butter to our bread. Simply put, they’re the best! If you had a great experience with a driver, please let us know by filling out the feedback screen after your ride.

How do I retrieve something I left in a ViaVan?

We’ve all been there, and we feel for ya! As soon as you realize an item is missing, please let us know by e-mailing us here, and we’ll put you in touch with your driver to track it down! Please note, unclaimed items will be donated after 30 days.

How do I reset my password?

When logging in, first make sure you are using the exact e-mail address that you used to open your ViaVan account. To reset your password, first open the app and select "Log me in." In the password box, press "Forgot your password?"

On this screen enter your phone number and press "Send"

Once you receive the password by text, you can go back into the app and log in with the password we sent you. Once logged in, you can change the password to one of your liking.

Click on the "Menu" icon in the top left and then the pencil icon - this will take you to edit your profile. Click on "Edit Password"

On this screen you will enter the current password (the one from the text message), and then enter a new password of your choice - then click "Save."

If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to e-mail us here!

I'm not receiving my temporary password!

We’re sorry for the hassle! Please email us here and we can reset your password for you manually.

I had an issue with my ride. How can I let you know?

Oh dear! We’re sorry to hear that there was a problem with your ride. Please let us know what went wrong either by filling out the feedback screen in the app after your ride or by emailing us here

Why is my place pin in the middle of the water?

We’re not quite ready to pilot ViaVan’s shared submarine service, so your map definitely shouldn’t be defaulting to a strange location. Please make sure that Location Services are enabled for the ViaVan app on your phone (Settings - Privacy - Location Services), and that should bring you back to dry land STAT!

The app isn't recognizing my pickup location!

When you book a ride, our system will generally propose a pickup location within two blocks or an avenue away. If the app is moving your pick up just a little ways away, that’s just our system working its magic.

Is your pick up being moved to nowhere near where you want it? Try using the place pins! These are the easiest and most precise way to set your pick up and drop off in the ViaVan app. Simply drag the map around until the blue pickup icon is at your desired spot, and then select "Set Pick Up."

How old do I have to be to use ViaVan?

Children under the age of 13 may only ride with ViaVan when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Minors between the ages of 13 to 18 may have their own member accounts and ride with ViaVan unaccompanied, but they must have consent from their parent or guardian.

How do I check my Ride Credit balance?

To check your ride and purchase history, just head to the app "Menu" and select "Ride Credit." You can also check your ride and credit history under "Menu" - "History."

I was charged a cleaning/damage fee - what is this?

Our driver partners work hard to maintain their vehicles and take pride in their upkeep and cleanliness. In the event that the interior or exterior of the vehicle is damaged or dirtied as a result of intentional or negligent acts such as aggressive slamming of doors, vomiting, or pet accidents, a fee may be assessed and charged when applicable.

The exact amount charged will depend on the extent of the damage up to 195€. ViaVan will always notify members when such a charge is necessary.

Can I book the entire ViaVan to myself?

At ViaVan we're all about sharing!

By booking a ride with us, you accept that you are willing and able to share your ride with other passengers. Booking a ride for additional passengers who are not accompanying you on a ride is a definite no-no.

Can I bring luggage/personal items in my ViaVan?

Your ViaVan has a large boot to fit suitcases, groceries or even your ice hockey kit! We ask that everyone use the boot for large items rather than the seating areas to avoid inconveniencing your fellow passengers.

Why do I see "Braintree" on my credit card statement?

While most charges from ViaVan will appear on your bank statement as "ViaVan," your charge card's bank will ultimately determine exactly how the charge appears on a statement.

ViaVan uses Braintree, an online payment processor owned by PayPal, to process transactions. Numerous other businesses use Braintree as well, but the name of the store or merchant charging you will appear on your statement once the transaction is finalized by your bank, typically within 7 days.

You can find more information directly through Braintree here: https://www.braintreepayments.com/charge

If you have any questions about charges on your card you believe come from ViaVan, please contact us here

Why didn't I receive my referral credit yet?

First of all, thank you for helping to spread the word about ViaVan! If you haven’t received any Ride Credit yet, check with the member you referred to make sure they signed up with your personal promo code. If they forgot to enter it, they can enter it later on by going into the "Menu" - "Promo Codes" section of the app.

If they’ve entered your code, it may be that they haven’t completed a ride yet. Ride Credit is only granted once the new rider completes their first ride, so get them in a ViaVan ASAP!

If both those things check out and you still haven’t received any Ride Credit, please shoot us an email here and we’ll take a peek.

**Terms of Use: The intended purpose of ViaVan referral codes is to be shared with friends, family, and on personal social media networks only with individuals known personally to the referring rider. Posting referral codes on commercial websites or coupon aggregator websites, including (but not limited to) RetailMeNot, Born to Coupon and CouponMate is strictly prohibited and will result in referral credit being revoked at ViaVan's discretion. Using a ViaVan referral code to refer new accounts created by one same individual is also strictly prohibited and will also result in referral credit being revoked at ViaVan's discretion. In addition, ViaVan reserves the right to revoke any referral credit obtained for referrals of fraudulent accounts (including accounts set up with false personal or payment information), as determined by the ViaVan system. ViaVan reserves the right to change any codes which it determines have been compromised and issue a replacement code.

Why don't I always get picked up or dropped off exactly where I request?

As ViaVan is a shared corner-to-corner service, we ask all our members to help contribute to the efficiency of the system by heading to a nearby corner - within a couple of blocks - for their pick up and drop off. This is how we are able to pick up multiple passengers without adding a significant amount of time to each rider’s journey. It saves you time, and at our low rates, it saves you money!

Can I change my destination once I'm in the car?

We get it - mistakes happen, plans change, and sometimes the destination where you booked to is no longer the destination you need to get to.

While we aim to please on every ride, in the event that a change would delay another passenger in the car or awaiting pick up, we can't accommodate requests for changes to drop-offs. You can always shoot us a text mid-ride, and we'll certainly try our best to accommodate your situation. If you haven't gotten on board yet, just cancel the ride and re-book with the new destination!

What if I'm late - will my driver wait for me?

ViaVan is a shared service, so to keep things fair to the members already on board, we'll have to keep your car moving. Our drivers will wait 60 seconds, at which point we'll try to get in touch with you, but if after a minute you're not at the car, we'll have to move on and you may be assessed a 1.50€ "No Show" fee.

If you're waiting at your pick up location and can't find your car, don't panic! Send a quick text message to our Live Support Team by replying to the text message we sent you about your vehicle's arrival. We'll make sure to get you on board!

My driver left without me!

Oh no - we're sorry we didn't get you on board!

If you were marked as a "No Show" and you still need a ride, please re-book directly in your app, and send an email here so we can look into what went wrong.

If your app is indicating that you were picked up, please text our Live Support Team directly by replying to any message we have sent you, so we can cancel that ride and make sure you are able to re-book.

Can I set up a business profile?

ViaVan offers the option to set up a Personal and a Business Profile. You can set up a Business Profile in the app under Menu - Billing or under Menu - Account. Simply enter your workplace e-mail address (or your employer's e-mail address) where you would like your Business Profile ride receipts to be sent.

You will then be able to select a default payment method from the cards you already have on file, or by adding a new payment method (including your employer's corporate card). You'll be able to switch between your Business and Personal profile when booking a ride.

Note: When riding under your Business Profile, you will not be able to use any existing Ride Credit. Rides taken under your Business Profile will be charged directly to the default payment method on your Business Profile.

We accept credit and debit cards, but we do not accept pre-paid debit cards.

Where can I see my past rides and purchases?

You can view any past rides and purchases right in your app under "Menu" - "History."

Oops, I forgot to press +1!

Not to worry! Just send a quick text to our Live Support Team by replying to any text message you receive from us, and we'll adjust it for you right away. Keep in mind, this may impact the cost of your ride.

Does ViaVan offer rides for wheelchair users?

Yes, wheelchair users can book a ride through the ViaVan app. Our Live Support team will then be in touch with the pick-up location that you need to make your way to and what the expected pick up time will be. Our wheelchair accessible vehicles are not branded like other ViaVan vehicles in Espoo so don't be alarmed when a vehicle arrives which doesn't look like all the others!
