We’re not charging late payment or cash advance fees, to help during the coronavirus situation
To make things a little easier during these difficult times, we’re not charging late payment or cash advance fees between 19 March and 17 June. You’ll still need to pay at least the minimum payment on time every month. That way, you’ll pay us less interest and your credit score won't be affected as long as you were up to date with your payments last month and you make at least the minimum payment to us within 14 days of the payment due date.
If your income is being impacted by coronavirus and you’re not able to make repayments at this time, we want to help. You may be eligible for a Barclaycard payment holiday which means that you won’t need to make your usual payments for up to three months. The quickest and easiest way to apply is to fill in our online form.
