Trying to call or visit us?
We know you may need to call us or visit a branch sometimes, but to help us support our most vulnerable customers, please only do so if you really need to.
We’ve re-opened as many branches as we can, but we’re limiting our appointment bookings to help those who need us most. Please contact your local branch for details.
In line with government guidelines, if you’re visiting us in branch you must wear a face covering unless you have a valid exemption. Please also maintain safe social distancing. This is to help protect you and others. We appreciate it’s a difficult time, so thanks for your ongoing support.
The quickest way to speak to us is using ‘Live chat’ in the the Barclays app1 – our team is available 24/7. Just log in, scroll down to ‘Contact us’, tap ‘Live chat’ and we can help you straight away.
You can check how our services are working at any time.
Find out how we can help with any of the services we offer if you’ve been affected by the coronavirus situation.
There are a number of ways we could help if your circumstances have changed, including a payment holiday or an extension if your mortgage offer from us is due to expire soon. Before deciding whether to apply for a payment holiday, please bear in mind that we’ll continue to charge interest as normal and add this interest to the amount you owe when the payment holiday ends. This means the balance we charge interest on will increase. You can find out more on our mortgage help page.
If you’re concerned about making payments on your loan, we have several ways we can help.
- Our money worries page has practical advice to help you tackle money troubles, improve your financial habits and find the support you need
- The Barclays app also has a section on money worries – under ‘Our services’ on the ‘Products’ screen
- We have a page dedicated to answering questions you might have when coming to the end of your payment holiday
- You can chat to us, either in Online Banking, the app, or by calling us on 0333 202 7412. We’re available Monday to Friday 8am to 7pm.
We’ve made some temporary changes to a range of savings accounts to help if you need to access your money, including new withdrawal limits. You’ll need to consider whether any of these options is right for you.
