credit card benefits

Worldwide Credit Card Assistance:

It's the nightmare situation- it's the first day of your holiday, you've just settled down in the hotel bar and you realise your passport's missing. Or you get a sudden message to say you're urgently needed back home. Or perhaps someone in your family falls ill and you don't know where to find a doctor…

Well, perhaps it's best not to let your imagination run away with you. But it's a good idea to make some contingency plans. With Barclaycard Worldwide Assistance, there's no need to worry. Just one call to our 24-hour helpline gives you instant access to:
Help to replace lost or stolen passport or travel documents

Register your passport, camera, laptop or iPod serial numbers with us before you go. Then, if you lose or have anything stolen we can provide the information to help getting duplicate documents, or to help complete police reports and insurance claim forms.
Legal and medical assistance

We'll find you a local English-speaking lawyer or doctor.
Help to get you home if there's an emergency

We'll arrange transport to get you home as soon as possible.
Interpretation

We can put you through to a phone-based interpretation service
Send a message home on your behalf

Whether it's an emergency or you've forgotten to cancel the papers.
How it all works

Services are provided by WhiteConcierge, Worldwide House, Thorpe Wood, Peterborough PE3 6SB, England. Registered company number 06203706.

Please note that the advice and assistance given under these services is free; however, the costs of any purchases, e.g. flights, etc, must be met by the cardholder.

Barclaycard Travel Service:

Let's face it, most of us live for the holidays, but the cost of everything can take the shine off your trip. So we've teamed up with Thomas Cook to make it cheaper for you to get away from it all.

Pay with your Barclaycard and you'll get great deals to thousands of destinations worldwide, from a package break in the sun to a ski holiday with friends or a special trip tailored to your every whim.

Cutting the cost of cutting loose:

You'll get a fantastic 7% discount on the latest tour operator prices- and Thomas Cook will waive their standard 2.25% credit card booking fee.

Free Text Alerts:

Let's face it, even the best of us can't remember everything we're meant to do. Like picking up some milk on the way home… or settling your Barclaycard account.

Well, we can't do much about the milk, but we can take one load off your mind.

Free Text Alert Service:

Sign up for our free alert service and we'll text you five days before your Barclaycard payment is due. That way you can avoid any late payment charges.

Credit card Replacement and cash Adveance:

It could be a heartstopping moment, couldn't it?

You're far from home and you realise your wallet or purse is missing. Barclaycard, cash - all gone.

You would ask your friend/partner/workmate to help you out, but they're miles (maybe thousands of miles) away.

We'll take care of things

Wherever you are in the world, in the UK or abroad, we'll send you either:
  • An Emergency Cash Advance of up to £1,000 a week (so long as you have the funds in your account)
  • Or a temporary credit card
We'll even waive the cash handling fee (usually 2.5%)
