What is a personal loan?

A personal loan could be a simple way to borrow, with a fixed interest rate that’s personal to you.

How do personal loans work?

We’ll tell you what your loan rate is before you apply – this won’t affect your credit score. Then you can apply in Online Banking or the Barclays app.

If we approve your application, we’ll pay the money into your account straight away.2

You’ll pay your loan back over your agreed term (or earlier, if you want to pay extra or repay sooner), until it’s all cleared. Early repayment charges may apply.

All loans are subject to your financial circumstances and borrowing history at the time you apply.

Personal loan questions and answers

What can I use a personal loan for?

You can use your loan for almost anything, apart from

  • Business reasons
  • Investments, including buying stocks and shares
  • Timeshares
  • Purchasing property (home improvements are fine)
  • Gambling-related expenses
  • Repaying CCJs (County Court Judgments)
  • A purchase made by combining this loan with any others

Do I qualify for a personal loan?

If you have a current account with us, we could tell you your personal rate up front – this won’t affect your credit score.

Here’s what we consider when you apply for a loan – whether your income is high enough to make the payments, your credit score, and how long you’ve banked with us. You also need to have a current account with us, live in the UK and be 18 or over.

Make sure you read everything before you apply.

Can I top up my loan at any time?

You can top up your loan at any time, but you’ll need to have had your loan for at least three months, and you’ll need to apply for this, then we’ll let you know our decision.

All loans are subject to your financial circumstances and borrowing history at the time you apply.

Can I choose my payment term?

 Yes – you can choose your term. Our calculator lets you see how different terms affect the rate you’ll pay.

Can I pay my loan off early?

Yes, you can pay off your loan early, but you’ll need to have had it for at least three months, and we’ll charge you a fee equal to 30 days’ interest on the amount you’re repaying, as well as any other interest that’s due.
