At Deliveroo we want our customers, riders and restaurant and grocery partners to have the best possible food delivery experience. At the same time, we want to ensure that the communities we work with are safe. These guidelines are designed to help ensure that everyone who uses the Deliveroo platform has a safe and positive experience.
RidersWe want your experience of riding with Deliveroo to be a safe and positive one. These guidelines are designed to help ensure the safety of everyone that rides with and orders from Deliveroo, as well as the smooth running of your rider app and the service our customers receive.
Stay safe - Safety should always be your first priority. When you're out on the road we ask that you always:
Follow all laws including road safety and traffic laws
Wear a helmet and reflective clothing to be more easily seen by other drivers
Carry food in approved thermal bags - this keeps food at a safe temperature
Keep your bags clean and in excellent shape
Let us know if your kit is damaged and you need a replacement backpack or thermal bag and we’ll send you some for free [link to proper support channel].
Stay respectful - When you interact with customers, restaurants or grocery partners, other riders, Deliveroo staff, and members of the public we ask that you do so with respect. You should also follow all laws, rules and regulations when you're working - they're there for everyone’s benefit. You should:
Follow all laws and regulations
Treat everyone you interact with politely and respectfully
Keep customer data safe -- never share a customer's details with anyone else or contact a customer when you’re not completing an order for them
As breaches of the above could amount to a serious breach of your Supplier Agreement, we investigate all reports we receive about these kinds of behaviour and this may result in you being unable to work with Deliveroo again. If you see another rider behaving unprofessionally don't hesitate to let us know.
Stay honest - Deliveroo only works when riders act in good faith to deliver orders to customers in a safe and timely manner. We actively monitor any suspicious and fraudulent actions, including:
Using multiple Deliveroo accounts at once
Using a different type of vehicle to the one you're registered with
Marking orders as delivered when they haven’t been
Purposely swiping through the app at the wrong time
Manually adjusting your GPS location information
Taking an unreasonably long time to deliver orders
Working with substitutes who don’t meet all the requirements to ride with Deliveroo
Interfering with Deliveroo's website, platform or apps
How we investigate potential infringement
If we are made aware of a rider who is acting in breach of their contract, as clarified in these guidelines, we will investigate the report before taking any action on the account. These investigations are always led by someone on our team, and riders will always be notified if we decide to take any action. If we see a pattern of dishonest behaviour involving your account we may choose not to work with you in future.
We have similar guidelines that we ask our Restaurant and Grocery Partners to follow as well. Everyone who partners with Deliveroo is encouraged to work together safely and respectfully. If you ever have any questions or concerns, you can always contact our dedicated Rider Support team.
