How to Contact Barclays Customer Service

There’s more than one way to contact Barclays. And if they don’t listen you have options…

When customer service doesn’t help, FairShake can get Barclays to listen.

Barclays is a multinational Bank headquartered in England. They have two divisions, one of which operates internationally and the other operates in the UK. Given the fact that it is a multinational universal bank, there are dozens of different contact numbers for customer service making it nothing short of a headache to resolve issues like hidden fees on your account.

Their general toll free customer service line is 1-888-718-8756. If you are calling from overseas their number is 1-704-719-1515. The website claims that customer service is available 24/7, but that’s a bit misleading; the fine print at the bottom of their website states that your account can be accessed online 24/7 but if you call customer service directly you have to call between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, seven days per week.

Their main mailing address for general correspondence is:

P.O. Box 70378
Philadelphia, PA 19176

Their physical address is:

Barclays Bank Delaware
125 South West Street
Wilmington, DE 19801

You can use social media like Facebook or Twitter to reach out to Barclays regarding fraudulent accounts or complaints, but there is no guarantee it will get a resolution. More importantly, even if someone responds, they generally ask you to contact customer service directly to resolve an account problem. 


If you have a credit card through Barclays, they offer their FAQ page, with a breakdown of support categories including things like:

  • Online account servicing
  • Temporary authorizations
  • Card statements
  • Security
  • Balance transfers
  • And more

Personal Loans

Barclays offers personal loans but they only do so via invitation so you can’t apply to get a personal loan. You can only accept an invitation for a personal loan. As such, there is no direct contact information specifically for personal loans on their website. You have to log in to your account to access information if you have a personal loan.
