You’ve finally returned to your hotel room after a long day of exploration, your feet are hurting and swollen, your hair is just tragic but you’re absolutely starving – who you gonna call? Room service!

Or will you?

TripAdvisor has teamed up with Deliveroo to give travellers another in-room dining choice, which may (or may not) put hotel room service out of business.

The pair this week integrated Deliveroo’s network into TripAdvisor’s website and mobile app where users can order food from more than 20,000 restaurant in 140 cities.


To access the food – holidaymakers simply need to shuffle in their hotel bed enough so that they can reach for their mobile phone (or tablet or computer) sitting atop of the bedside table, open TripAdvisor, click the ‘order online’ button when browsing the TripAdvisor restaurant listing of one of Deliveroo’s partners. This will take consumers to the delivery food service’s online platform where they place their order.

It’s almost as simple as ordering food service and just as convenient because the order comes right to your hotel room door.

The service also comes with a whole lot more options to fill your food cravings, plus, prices are also expected to be slightly more generous considering how high room service can be along with the service fee, and let’s not get started on the mini-bar rip offs.


Bertrand Jelensperger, TripAdvisor Restaurants Senior Vice President said through this partnership food delivery will “create incremental value for both businesses as well as consumers”.

“Whether reading reviews, reserving a table through Dimmi or placing a food order through Deliveroo, our goal is for TripAdvisor to serve as a one-stop-shop for diners around the world.”

The integration with Deliveroo expands TripAdvisor’s food delivery service into 12 new countries:  United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Hong Kong and Australia.
