Could be good for you if:

  • You're currently on a variable-rate mortgage charging a higher rate than the Great Escape and are able to change mortgage lenders without paying an early repayment charge to your existing lender
  • You want the flexibility to switch to a Barclays fixed-rate mortgage when it suits you without incurring an early repayment charge

Look at our other products if:

  • You are not remortgaging, but buying a new home or are a first-time buyer
  • You want to offset your savings to reduce your monthly mortgage payments or pay off your mortgage sooner
