Deliveroo and Just Eat insurance rules explained after police gave delivery drivers six points and a fine

Delivery drivers without insurance for professional use will never win the favor of the Greater Manchester Police…

Force officers issued six points and a fine to several motorists who committed the offense in the city center on Saturday evening. So if you are reading this and received a cold kebab from your local restaurant last night, you might now know the reason.

Outlining the level of insurance required in the UK to work for online food ordering and delivery service Just Eat, a statement on the company’s website reads: “At a minimum, you should have “business use” insurance to cover food delivery use and Hire & Reward coverage. Additionally, if you were involved in an incident while underinsured, your insurance company would not cover the costs incurred.”

The Deliveroo website states: “As a Deliveroo driver you are covered by our insurance whenever and wherever you are on the road with us in the UK. This includes all the time you are online, as well as up to ‘one hour after you log out.’

Police also caught a number of private hire motorists committing offenses during a Saturday night patrol on Liverpool Road, including driving with numerous lights out, exceeding the speed limit and not not carrying their private hire license in accordance with the conditions of their licence.
