When you see Deliveroo on the road, you might think that it is a company brand from Australia as it is similar to the animals of this country Kangaroo. But Deliveroo is actually a London-based global food delivery company that serves more than two hundred cities in the world from Europe to Australia.
In Australia, Deliveroo was officially available in Australia in 2015 and launched their first two offices in Sydney and Melbourne. Deliveroo can be regarded as the first Australian sharing economy in the food delivery field. They opened opportunities for anyone who wants to work by delivering food orders from restaurants to customers, it has flexible working hours and there are no bosses.
In the country, Deliveroo is not operated exclusively in this business. They must compete strictly with other global companies such as Uber Eats, which is currently the market leader in the country, and another US-based company DoorDash that just entered in September 2019. In addition, they also have to face well-established local companies based on Sydney Menulog.
Deliveroo List of Cities
When it first arrived in Australia, Deliveroo could only be used in the two most populous cities, Sydney and Melbourne. Currently, their service has expanded to various parts of Australia and according to information from their website, now their on-demand food delivery service is available in 24 cities and regions around the country.
The following is a complete list where you can order meals through the Deliveroo platform.

|Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong, Central Coast
|Melbourne, Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, Mornington Peninsula
|Brisbane, Cairns, Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Townsville, Sunshine Coast, Bundaberg

Deliveroo Delivery Fee
Just like similar services from other companies, Deliveroo customer also will be charged a small fee to help cover the cost of delivery. The fee can change based on several factors such as delivery distance and time to deliver. But when we attempted to order a meal from a restaurant which is 3.0 km and 0.5 km from our place, the app still revealed the same delivery fee, A$5.00 on each order.
However, you have an option to get rid of the delivery fee for every meal you order by subscribing to Deliveroo Plus. After being subscribed for A$22.49/month you can enjoy unlimited free delivery. In addition, you are also eligible to enjoy extra discounts and offers from selected restaurant partners.
Deliveroo Promo Code
There are quite a lot of on-demand food delivery apps rivalling in the Australia market. In such fierce competition, Deliveroo must make various efforts so that their services still get attention from foodies around the country.
The best way is to provide a variety of promotions to customers, especially for new customers who have never tried their app. From our experience when registering, new users will get a discount of A$8.00 for first order, which is valid for one week from the date of registration.
In addition to the new user promotion, Deliveroo sometimes also gives special offers to their existing users. This type of offers is usually delivered via registered email. Most likely the promotion is targeted and can only be used only by users who receive it.
How to Become Deliveroo Delivery Driver
Deliveroo is a pioneer of Australian’s gig economy in food delivery. Since its launch in this country, this company has opened up opportunities for locals to be able to earn extra money by working as a delivery driver. Delivery partners are able to use their own bicycle, car or motorcycle in order to deliver meals to customers.

In addition to the personal docs, if you plan to use a car or motorbike, you also need to complete it with driver licence and vehicle insurance.
