How busy your area is
Your map on the app will show you a diagram with hexagons that updates every 5 minutes, the stronger the shade of purple, the more orders available in this area.

So you can see when it’s a great time to go online, take a break, or try riding in a nearby zone that’s busier.

Missing items
If a customer tells you an item is missing from their order, don’t take action on your own, politely let them know that they should report it through the Deliveroo app. Doing this allows you to get back on the road quickly, while our Customer Service helps the customer directly.

Can’t reach customer
If you can’t find the customer’s address, or they aren’t answering their door, there are several ways you can try and contact the customer through your Deliveroo Rider App: send them a message, give them a call, send a “Leaving Soon” alert or complete the order after 5 minutes and leave it in a safe place.

Unable to find the customer of a cash-on-delivery order
If the customer of a cash-on-delivery order doesn’t show up, please contact our Team Rider Support via Live Chat, the team will investigate your case and, if necessary, will refund you for the amount you anticipated at the restaurant, for more info visit the following page.
