Halifax Home Insurance £50 Quido + £50 Halifax Cashback

Found 1st Apr 2015
It's back! Halifax are once again giving £50 cash back and there's also £50 cashback via quidco. My cashback last year tracked with no problem. Got £100 off a very competitive quote, meaning my overall annual home insurance cost was only £27 last year.

Halifax also don't charge interest if you choose to pay monthly. Amount is same for one off payment and monthly payment.

The cash back is for Building + Contents only.

I can't use this offer again this year, as I already have a policy with the Halifax. It's worth checking comparison websites, as Halifax may not be the suitable cost effective for all quotes or all circumstances.

Would be nice if I can get insurance. mines a ex flooded house

Mine due soon, thanks.

Thanks OP.
Policy due to be renewed in May,Halifax was coming out 2nd cheapest on comparison site after £50 cashback.
But did a fresh quote via quidco,and I am looking at a net cost of £25.68 for a years building and contents with accidental and low excess on a 2 bed semi.
Works for me!

if you have had continuous insurance during the flood, i am guessing you should be able to buy insurance from your incumbent provider.

Won't let me take the combined insurance!

If you have a partner you could insure in his/her name instead this year to be a new customer....

Most expensive quote I have ever had for my house. Maybe suits some, but certainly not me. I am presently paying less than 100 quid for buildings and contents. Halifax want over 250 quid.

Mine has always come out as comically uncompetitive.

yeah mine was 350! crazy money, unless they think u live in a Kensington mansion

Yip, thought about that, unfortunately named my wife as joint policy holder last year. Too much face palm today.

Used these before when they were once competitive. Just tried a quote and even with £100 cashback, its still over £50 dearer oO

Don't go near this! I saved £450 per year. Keep,well away as its over priced!!!! Feel free to contact me for the full story.....

You saved £450 per year?! Is your gold plated mansion in the centre of Baghdad?

Is there any harm in getting a quote? You're not obligated to buy the insurance.

I think insurance companies pick a market and are competitive for them, I don't believe Norwich Union charge everyone £2k for car insurance or they'd get no business. If they're not they just don't want your business.

Mine was a lot more, however I would say that it is pretty good insurance, lots of coverage, etc. They also let you pay monthly for free if that's your thing.However wasn't worth more than triple for me.

Also remember that they do a lot of mortgages so they can lock in people getting a mortgage, they're still a rip off but it is a lot more convenient having them as your insurer (they cover for free from exchange)

Thanks op,mine was due end April,comparison site offered £91 less £40 tcb,if both Halifax £50 and Quidco £50 payout I will have paid £39 for house&contents,so worked for me!

Hmm just took the policy out through Quidco.

When you click through Quidco, it warns you that "cashback is only valid to users who use BACS as their payment method". So although Halifax offer interest free monthly direct debit, you can't use that if you want £50 Quidco cashback. I paid the whole amount by Credit card, hope that is same as BACS.

Could be wrong but I think it means that the Quidco cashback will only go to your bank account not to a Paypal account,if thats is what you usually get your cashback sent to,time will tell,but at least mine has tracked quickly.

Maybe you're right, but because I don't get this message for anything else I buy through Quidco, I thought it's better to be safe.

All it means is that you need BACS set as a payment method for Quidco,as that is how the Quidco cashback will be paid.
Doesnt matter how you pay for the Halifax policy.
It's quite common for cashback site payout to be restricted to certain payment methods,especially top cashback,who offer all sorts of payout options.

Thanks OP, my Quidco cashback has just been confirmed (_;)

Great offer. quidco tracked

should be mega hot this

T&C's state:

"This offer cannot be used together with any other offer or promotion unless we tell you."

I suspect they'll invalidate cashback on the basis cashback is already being paid by a cashback site

£269 quite from Hfx, so £209 after cashback. Renewal quote was £161, comparethemeerkat gives a best quote of £101!

Update: Got a quote of £89 off another comparison site. Pays to shop around, guys!
