Easy to contact.

We have UK only call centres, which means all our claims advisers are based in the UK.

There are no forms to complete. All our claims specialists complete your claim for you over the phone to save you time and effort.


Help in an emergency.

Rather than trying to find an electrician or plumber in the middle of the night, just ring the 24-hour Emergency homeline number. Arrangements will be made for a tradesperson to call at your home to repair any damage. You’ll need to pay for the repairs but if the damage is covered under your policy you can claim back in the normal way.

Service provided by Royal & Sun and Alliance Insurance plc.


Extra support when you need it.

If your claim is particularly complex and we feel you need extra support, we can send a Personal Claims Consultant to help you face to face. They’ll make sure your claim runs as smoothly as possible.

Before your claim is settled, we can make emergency payments, supporting you when you need it most.

What you can get with our cover

We offer two levels of high quality affordable cover. Halifax Home Insurance gives you flexibility to tailor your cover to your needs and Halifax Home Insurance Ultimate offers more cover as standard.

  • Accidental damage cover - We all know accidents happen. So if you want the reassurance of being protected against life’s unfortunate incidents, such as smashing a window, spilling wine on the carpet, or your dog knocking over a vase, we have cover available. This is applicable for both buildings and contents cover. Accidental damage cover is an optional extra with Halifax Home Insurance and is included as standard with Halifax Home Insurance Ultimate.
  • High risk item cover - You will be covered for £10,000 worth of high risk items as standard (you can select more cover if you wish) . This covers belongings such as your jewellery, mobile phone, and computers within your home. You can select a higher amount if needed.
  • Alternative accommodation - If you need to stay somewhere else due to an insured event damaging your home we will arrange and pay for this for you, your family and your domestic pets. Limits apply.
  • Water damage trace and access - If you have a water leak that's damaged your buildings we’ll not only cover the water damage itself, but also the cost of finding the leak. Trace and access is covered up to £5,000 and applies to scenarios such as damage caused by escape of water from any domestic appliance or fixed domestic water installation.

Limits, terms and exclusions apply. See our policy booklet for full details.
