  • Anything related to starting or running a business
  • Investment purposes, including buying stocks and shares
  • Timeshares
  • Other property finance, including purchases, part payment or deposits on purchases and property development – although home improvements are fine

Top up an existing loan

Top up your current Barclayloan

If you're registered for Barclays Online banking and you already have a loan from us, topping it up could be a good option if you want to borrow some more.


There are 2 ways we can help:


Top-up your existing loan

When you top-up a loan, we don't actually add money to it. Instead, we set up a new loan for the remaining balance and the extra amount you want to borrow. Then we pay off your old loan from the total, including any early repayment charges, and transfer what's left into your account. The new loan may have a different interest rate from your initial loan, and the term might be different, too. This may mean that you would pay more interest than before.

How to apply

If you’ve already registered for Online or Mobile Banking, log in to see if you have a provisional loan limit and can apply online. If not, you can register now or call us on 0800 716 5982 5.

You could also use our mobile banking app to see if you can apply for a new loan or top up your current one. If you haven’t registered yet, find out what our mobile banking app could do for you.

Take out an additional loan

Did you get your current loan for a specific reason and want to borrow for something else, or just want to keep your repayments separate? If you have a Barclayloan and are registered for Online Banking, you could apply for a second loan.


Log in to see if you have a provisional loan limit and can apply online. Then follow the application process.


If you're not registered for Online Banking, call us on 0800 716 5982 5.


As with any form of lending, make sure your new repayments will be affordable.

All loans are subject to status at the time you apply. Early repayment fees will apply.

Get helpful guidance from the experts

We've teamed up with the experts at RAC Cars and Glass's to bring you a selection of handy tools, helpful guides and independent information 7.


Read the sections below to take advantage of expert guidance.

Find your next car

Looking for a quality used car? Set your price range and choose your favourite style, make and model and search across thousands of used cars either in your local area or across the country to find the perfect one for you.

If you’ve decided to buy a new car, finding the right one for your budget can seem difficult. Glass’s can help you find new cars at a price to suit you.

Find out the value of car you want to buy or sell

Getting a realistic valuation when buying or selling car is not always easy, but it doesn’t have to be guesswork. If you’re selling a car, you want to get as much as possible for it – but setting the price too high can scare off potential buyers. If you’re buying a car, knowing its approximate value in advance can be a useful bargaining tool when you negotiate a price.

Glass's can provide you with a free online estimate based on the registration number and average mileage data – 9 out of 10 car dealers use them for valuations. It also offers a more detailed valuation based on the actual mileage and if the car has any optional extras.

How to buy a second-hand car

Whether you’re planning to buy a used car from a dealership or a private seller, RAC Cars has some practical tips that will help you avoid problems. You’ll find out how to check that the car belongs to the seller and has not been written off by insurers, as well as the paperwork you should check before buying, such as the log book and vehicle identification number (VIN).

RAC Cars also gives tips on inspecting and test-driving the vehicle, and using car history and professional vehicle checks to make sure you’re not buying a damaged or illegally traded car.

How to check the history of a second-hand car

Before you buy a second-hand car, you’ll probably check the bodywork, the engine and take a test drive – but this doesn’t always tell you everything you need to know. Some details may be hidden until you check the car’s history to see if it’s been stolen, written-off, clocked or has outstanding finance.

Around 1 in 3 second-hand cars sold each year has a hidden past – based on checks done by HPI in 2010. You can get an insight into a car’s history by paying for a HPI Check or HPI Multicheck. It’s an instant, online check by vehicle registration number and you can check up to 3 cars at any one time.

How to cut the cost of owning and using a car

Owning a car can be a costly business, RAC Cars has come up with some points on how to understand and manage your motoring costs. For example, some newer models have engine features that could cut your road tax payment to zero, while start-stop systems (engine turns off when the car stops) can save significantly on fuel over time. 

A yearly service will help to reduce the speed with which the car’s value depreciates, which also helps to prevent problems that could cause a costly breakdown. Even the way you drive can cost you – fast acceleration and hard braking will add to your fuel costs and cause wear to the engine and braking system.

What types of car finance are there to choose from?

Unless you’re a cash buyer, there are 4 main ways to pay for a new or used car – hire purchase (HP), leasing, personal contract payment (PCP) and a bank loan.

There are plenty of questions to consider before choosing, such as whether you have a deposit, how much you could pay each month and how long you’re prepared to stay in an agreement. Your choice could also be affected by whether you’d want to sell the car or trade it in for a newer model in future – even how many miles you drive each year.

RAC Cars has a guide that helps you work out how to choose car finance based on your circumstances and preferences.
