Coronavirus (COVID-19) support

We’re with you during this crisis. If your income has been affected by coronavirus, you may wish to take a loan repayment holiday. Ask to have a repayment holiday.


Can I apply?

You can apply for a loan if:

  • You’re aged 18 or over and live in the UK (excluding the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man).
  • You’re in paid employment or have a regular income.
  • You’re not a full–time student.
  • You haven’t had a request for credit declined in the past month.
  • You don’t have a history of bad credit, such as bankruptcy or CCJs.
  • You are not applying for any of these reasons.


Why choose Halifax?

Take a repayment holiday, if you need a break –
Subject to approval, you can ask for up to two repayment holidays a year. Interest will still be charged for the months that you don’t make any payments, so you'll pay more interest overall and your original term will be extended.

No charge for making extra payments –
If you find you have a little cash spare from time to time, we won’t charge you for paying more than the agreed monthly amount.

No paperwork, no fuss –
It’s quick and easy to apply online, with no paper forms to complete or sign.

A bank you can trust –
We’ve been taking care of our customers for over 160 years, so you know you’re in safe hands.
