Coronavirus - getting back to normal

With the government announcing an end to coronavirus restrictions, most of our services are back to normal.

We’re here to help you manage your money as things start to get back to normal.

Payment holidays

Support if your payment holiday has ended

If you have had a payment holiday in place, here are some ways we can support you now that it’s ended.

Disputed transactions

If you’ve used your Barclaycard to pay for a trip or event that’s now been cancelled, you might be able to claim your money back (conditions apply).


Credit balance refunds

If your plans have changed and you’ve been refunded to your Barclaycard as a result, you can ask us to transfer the credit balance to your bank account.

Managing your Barclaycard online

Managing your Barclaycard and paying your bill

If you can’t make it to a branch, our app and online servicing are available to help you manage your account 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – great if you’re staying at home.

We’ve created some useful step-by-step guides to help you get started – from registering and logging in, to paying your bill and setting up a Direct Debit.

Worried about your finances?

If you’re suffering any hardship, or worried about getting into financial difficulty, you’ll find more information on our money worries page, along with details of how to get in touch if you have any questions.

Fraud protection

Fraudsters are using the publicity around coronavirus as cover for scams. Don’t disclose any personal or financial information – we’ll never ask you to share your passcodes or PINs with us.

Avoiding contact when you pay

We’ve updated the contactless limit to £100 to make it easier for you to make payments with your Barclaycard instead of cash. Just check the retailer has increased their limits before you pay. You can also set up Apple Pay on your device.
