  • Am I covered by insurance when I work with Deliveroo?

    Your safety and security are incredibly important to us. This is why we’re spending over €11 million to protect every freelance rider globally, so you don’t have to worry.

    We’ve developed a market leading insurance cover, which means that whenever you’re out on the road with us, you’re protected in the event of an accident. Plus if an injury means you are unable to work, your earnings are protected while you recover.

    It’s totally free and covers you from the moment you go online. Both you and your substitute are covered via this insurance. You are insured during the period you are online until an hour after you went offline.

  • How do I get paid?

    Riders get paid for each delivery they make. The exact delivery fee varies per order and includes a variable distance fee. You will be told of the delivery fee payable before you accept the order. Your total earnings depend on the moment(s) you work (peak / non-peak) and how many orders you decide to accept.

    Fees are paid every two weeks. If you want your fees sooner, you can use our cash out feature in the app, for a €0,50 fee.

    Riders keep 100% of any tips they receive and these are paid at the same time as the rest of your fees.

  • Do I have to order kit?

    It is not mandatory to wear the Deliveroo rider kit. However, the kit you use while working needs to meet Deliveroo’s (food) safety requirements. When you don’t own a rider kit, you can order this in our webshop Shopify.

    It is mandatory to work with at least a thermal bag, a backpack and a reflective jacket in order to maintain road safety, but it is not mandatory to use the Deliveroo branded kit.

    Check out the Shopify page for an overview of all kit items.

  • Can I make deliveries while I’m waiting for my kit to be delivered?

    We provide you with Deliveroo core kit which meets our health and safety standards. However, as long as the kit you use meets the required health and safety standards, there is no requirement to use our branded kit when making deliveries.
