What is Worldwide Assistance?

If you run into trouble when you're abroad, our Worldwide Assistance helpline is open Monday to Sunday, 8am – 8pm to help you out.

We can offer:

  • a local English-speaking lawyer or doctor
  • transport to get you home as soon as possible
  • an interpreter to assist you with the local language
  • a messaging service so you can get in touch with home.

You can also register your passport, camera, laptop and iPod serial numbers with us before you travel, so we can help you with police reports and insurance claim forms, if anything goes missing or is stolen.

To get in touch with our Worldwide Assistance service, just give us a call on 0800 151 0900 from the UK or +44 (0) 1604 230 230, from abroad. Call charges may apply.

We also offer a Next Generation Text or SignVideo service. For more information, visit barclaycard.co.uk/accessibility.
