Deliveroo Is Doing Free Delivery Throughout Victoria During the State's Five-Day Lockdown
Just like Victoria's previous short lockdowns, it's available throughout the state until the stay-at-home period ends.
With Victoria now in lockdown again until 11.59pm on Tuesday, July 20, home cooking and takeaway is back on the menu. Fancy the latter more than the former? Spent too much time baking during the other four similar stints at home? Eager to order in for any reason possible? If you fall into any of the above categories, and you're keen to both support local eateries and keep an eye on your bank balance, Deliveroo is ditching its delivery fees for orders from most restaurants.
Until the current expected end of lockdown at 11.59pm on Tuesday, July 20, the service is doing free delivery from a range of Victoria eateries. More than 7800 places are taking part, with Royal Stacks, Misschu, Oriental Tea House and Danny's Burgers among the participating Melbourne eateries, and venues in Ballarat, Geelong and Bendigo also on the list. If your stomach is craving fast food at this chaotic time, Macca's, Guzman y Gomez, Grill'd and Oporto are all involved as well.
The aim: to encourage Victorians to help local restaurants during this latest stay-at-home period and, because that's the world we live in, to help stop panic buying at supermarkets as well. To ensure that all of the eateries involved aren't missing out on revenue or left out of pocket, Deliveroo is footing the bill for the discounted amount, too.
If you're suddenly hungry, you'll need to place an order via the Deliveroo app. There are usually caveats, with the free delivery deal not normally extending to bottle shops, KFC, Crust or Domino's, or to places listed in the app as 'delivered by restaurant'. When Deliveroo ditches its delivery fees, you also usually need to spend at least $10 at most eateries, $12 at McDonald's, Subway and Baskin-Robbins, and $15 if you're purchasing from Red Rooster.
Deliveroo is doing free delivery across Victorian eateries until 11.59pm on Tuesday, July 20. To make an order, head to the Deliveroo app.
