talabat pledges to match rider tips during one week in December

  • alabat considers their riders to be heroes – without them, the company would not have been able to support the communities, the way it did, through the pandemic. 
  • talabat is launching a special campaign to reward its riders in the UAE for their incredible service during this time. 

United Arab Emirates: talabat, the food and groceries delivery platform with the largest fleet of riders in the UAE, is launching a special campaign to thank them for their memorable efforts presented at the forefront during the ongoing pandemic. 

This holiday season, from the 16th to the 20th of December, talabat will be doubling any and all tips received by riders in the country to show them that their incredible efforts are appreciated and always recognised. 

Tomaso Rodriguez, CEO of talabat says, “We are extremely thrilled to take this opportunity to thank our riders for their selfless, dedicated work through these pressing times. Without them, we truly would be unable to support our customers in the UAE and across the region.” 

Every day, talabat riders brave the heat waves, rain floods, crazy traffic jams and not to mention, a global pandemic. As a goodwill gesture, talabat has come up with a simple way to thank them. Customers can provide a tip for every order they place. These tips will be matched directly by talabat, where every customer-generated tip will be doubled and sent to that rider. All talabat riders will receive their double-upped tips before the end of the month!

Jérémy Doutté, Managing Director of UAE added, “At talabat, we care immensely about our amazing riders and have great respect for them and what they do – they are a part of our family and I’m so glad that we, as a community, can show them how much we appreciate them.” 

Not only did riders ensure we received our favourite meals to our doorsteps, they also delivered 90,000 meals to UAE residents in need during Ramadan, as well as supporting frontliners amongst others. These meals were a mix of donations from government entities, strategic partners, talabat customers and talabat. In addition, talabat riders delivered over 4000 medicine packages across the UAE in collaboration with the Dubai Health Authority. 

Customers can tip the rider in a few simple steps (included below) and talabat will match their donations! Thank you for supporting our riders!
