Can I top-up my existing personal loan?
If you already have a loan from us but are interested in further borrowing, you may be eligible to top it up.
If you’re registered and are eligible, you can do this in Online Banking, through the Barclays app, by Telephone Banking or in branch.
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 that 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, the term might be different, and you may have a different monthly repayment date (although you might be able to change this once the new loan is open). This all means that you could pay more interest than before.
