How much does Dryvar cost?

For each order, you'll pay the cost of the food, any applicable taxes, and a Dryvar delivery fee.

The delivery fee is primarily based on distance, but other restaurant-specific and marketplace factors may affect the amount you see. Although restaurants have different delivery fees, you'll always know the exact amount before you order.

Each restaurant decides how much it wants to charge for its food. Restaurant prices and offers may vary from what you see when you visit the restaurant in person.

What do I do if I was double charged?

If you believe you have been charged for a cancelled order or have been charged twice for the same order, it is most likely an authorization hold.

For security reasons, we may occasionally verify that your payment method is valid. When you request an order, Dryvar places a temporary authorization hold on your card and removes it within hours of delivery. This is not a charge and will disappear from your bank statement within a few days.

This process allows us to prevent fraud and ensure that you don't need to add a payment method after each order or trip.
