Avoid this insurance doesn't cover you with what you would think with personal possessions. Never claimed and had to on recent holiday as apartment was robbed all money and items were stolen. Halifax turned round and stated that I wasn't covered as items/money were not in safe or I hadn't had them on me when stolen. Pretty pathetic excuse and not worth the paper the policy is written on!!!!

Taking a travel with Halifax is very easy but when you need to make a claim, you will be put on hold on the claim helpline for hrs to waste your money and make phone call money for them. I wont recommend Halifax travel ins to anyone.

Do not under any circumstances use Halifax Travel Insurance, at the time of writing my claim is at the 2nd stage of complaint, I don't expect to get paid out. After 17 weeks Halifax are still asking for information that I sent them at the start of my claim, every time you phone or write they change the information they need, they lie and try every trick in the book to avoid paying. And as for the customer service, forget it, never spoken to such rude people in my life. Only giving one start because I can't give none.

Rented a villa in Spain which was burgled, forced entry, police report everything. We had taken every precaution to secure / hide everything but the villa was turned over completely. Had mobiles, cash, aftershaves stolen, Halifax refusing to pay for mobiles and cash as they were not in a safe - the villa did not have a safe. Be warned there policy states personal possessions, which can be anything they choose, must either be with you or in a safe, otherwise you are not covered, so if there is no safe yo must take everything with you. I am complaining to the Insurance Ombudsman as I believe this is unfair and fails in their duty to Treat Customers Fairly.

When I recently went to Austria, I took out the single trip policy cover with Halifax travel insurance. I took out my Halifax travel insurance over the phone because I couldn’t tick all the initial health question boxes for the online policy. If you purchase your policy online, you receive a 10% discount, so I explained my reasons for not purchasing online and the 10% discount was added. The over-the-phone service was excellent, chatty and friendly. Importantly, the accent on the other end of the phone was easy to understand. The whole process was fairly simple and didn't take long once the policy details were clearly explained. As I was taking out my policy at the last minute, all the details I would need to make a claim were given to me over the phone in case the documents did not arrive through the post on time. Although my policy was fairly expensive compared to some of the cheap deals around, I wouldn't have been able to declare my medical conditions on these. I now use Halifax every time I take out travel insurance, and I am yet to have any problems with their service.
