In 1962 the Diner’s Club credit card became the most popular and most successful credit card in Britain. Taking note of this, Barclay’s retail and business banking division decided to follow suit and offer their own credit card. Barclay’s issued its first credit card in 1966 and through the years the Barclaycard has rapidly grown in popularity. Today Barclay’s is the #1 credit card issuer in the UK with 10.4 million cards issued and another 10.8 million issued in other areas of the world. For each of these card holders, Barclaycard contact is an option via several contact methods.

Lost or Stolen Cards

When travelling abroad it is a good idea to call Barclaycard to inform them of your destination(s) and travel dates so that they will be aware that your card may be used in new locations. This will prevent them from flagging any unusual activity on your card as suspicious. Also, when traveling, take extra care to protect your card. Double-check frequently to make certain that it is in your possession and that you know it’s exact location.
