Who is Halifax?

It’s been part of the Lloyds Banking Group since 2009, along with Royal Bank of Scotland, Scottish Widows, and MBNA, and was publicly listed in 1997. 

There are around 65,000 employees in the group, and 5,000 of those work for Halifax. 

Halifax’s car insurance policies are arranged and administered by BISL Limited, an independent intermediary authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, and it is underwritten by a panel of insurers. 

Named after the town where it was founded as a building society in 1853, it sells a range of financial products – from current accounts, ISAs and mortgages to car, life, and pet insurance. 


Halifax car insurance policy details

Halifax offers a selection of car insurance policies and types. Not all policies and types are available through our site, so the exact levels of cover and benefits may vary. Before buying car insurance, we recommend you check the cover and benefits included.

Halifax break their cover down into three levels

  • Third-party only
  • Third-party, fire and theft
  • Fully comprehensive cover

Third-party only is the most basic form of car insurance, covering only any damage you inflict on a third party, their vehicle or their property.

Third party, fire and theft protects your vehicle against damage caused by fire and theft, and covers any damage to a third party, their vehicle or their property.

Comprehensive car insurance covers all of the above, and comes with a range of additional extras. If you choose comprehensive cover, you will automatically get:

  • Cover for the car and accessories
  • Cover for your personal belongings
  • Glass damage cover
  • Personal accident cover
  • Cover allowing you to drive abroad in Europe for up to 60 days
  • Replacement lock cover if your keys or ignition activation device is stolen
  • Courtesy car provision if you can’t drive your own car
  • Vandalism cover if your car is damaged
  • Three-year guarantee if you get your car repaired at one of Halifax’s approved mechanics, and a new car replacement, if your car is under 12 months old
