Deliveroo allows you to be flexible in your work and offers great benefits to the riders including great deals on high street shops. I learned how to work independently, cycling for many hours at a time on my own...
Stress free work, constantly moving around, self employment freedom. Your choice when it comes to hours working, flexible, can take holidays whenever you like.
I do this full-time on a 125cc Scooter. You get to work when you want which is fantastic. If you put the days in you can earn good money. And I mean very good money.
It has allowed me to keep fit as well as earn money and the way the system works on a fee per delivery basis, there is a potential to make some really good money.

Deliveroo is proud to offer flexible work with attractive earnings. We try to do this by ensuring the number of riders we onboard and have on the road matches our anticipated customer demand, in particular during peak periods.
At certain times of the year, when we expect particularly high demand, we may onboard new riders on short-term supplier agreements. These agreements come with an expiry date, after which your account will be closed. This will allow us to meet the temporary increase in customer demand during our busy season, and ensure attractive earnings for our riders.
Once you’ve received your supplier agreement you can check clause 1 to find this date. After this date, your account will be closed - we'll send you an email before this happens to remind you.
We’re constantly assessing our consumer demand and we’ll get in touch later if there’s an opportunity for you to switch to an unlimited supplier agreement. Within the dates of your supplier agreement you're free at all times to decide when, where and whether to work, and to accept or reject any order, for any reason.

For cars and motorised scooter you'll need both ‘Social, Domestic & Pleasure’ and ‘Hire & Reward’ insurance when working with Deliveroo.
This is standard insurance that covers you for the everyday use of your vehicle. It covers you for the times when you’re not using your vehicle for your work. SD&P insurance is a legal requirement for any vehicle that has not been declared off-road.

Our market leading insurance cover 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 whenever you go online with us.
Cyclists are also covered by public liability insurance while working – and motorised scooter and car riders are covered whenever they’re ‘off-vehicle’, for example, when walking to pick up and deliver orders. This protects you against claims made against you by other people, for their personal injury or property damage, as a result of an accident while riding.
You can view more information about this insurance cover, including policy terms and conditions, and excess fee details here.
Motorised sScooter and car riders will still need to have third-party liability insurance for their vehicle, as well as food delivery insurance, as required by law. You can find out about these insurance products here.
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.
Fees are paid every week on a Tuesday. If you want your fees sooner, you can use our cash out feature in the app, for a 50p fee.
Riders keep 100% of any tips they receive and these are paid at the same time as the rest of your fees.
