What should I do if I can’t find my debit card?

If you can’t find your debit card but don’t think it’s been lost or stolen, you can use the Barclays app to freeze it temporarily. This prevents it being used to pay in-store and online, and blocks withdrawals from cash machines. It also suspends Apple Pay and contactless mobile. 

What should I do if my card is lost or stolen?

Report it to us as soon as you realise it’s lost or stolen and order a new one. You can do this anytime in your Barclays app, Online Banking, by phone or at a branch.

You can see your new card details including card number, expiry date and security code, straight away in the app under ‘View card details & PIN’.

  • Branch

    You can report your card lost or stolen at any Barclays branch and, if it's an emergency and you need your card straight away, we offer a temporary debit card service**. Use our branch locator to find the nearest branch that offers this service.

Important information

* Debit cards will be delivered to the address we hold on record for your account within five working days, dependent on standard Royal Mail second-class delivery to the UK. This service does not include credit cards. If you’ve requested a new PIN, you’ll receive this separately.

** Temporary debit card terms and conditions: This service cannot be offered if your account has been open for less than 30 days. It’s available for replacement cards only – not for new customers or new accounts. We can only issue replacement debit cards – not cash cards, credit cards or savings cards. Temporary cards issued in branch will have a new card number. If you have a personalised debit card, we’re not able to print your picture so you’ll receive a standard debit card.

This service is limited to two cards per customer, per calendar year. If you’ve already used two cards this calendar year, you can still order a new replacement card and we'll send it to you in the post.

To protect your account, you’ll need to provide photo ID, such as a passport. You’ll be asked to use your PIN once the card has been issued.
