Barclays tracker mortgage

Really glad we went for this product quite a few years back, the best mortgage we've ever had. With current low rates it's really good value and along with it's built in 'overdraft' facility is very flexible. Over payment is also possible to allow the mortgage to be paid off earlier if required. It is transferable to a new home which adds to it's flexibility.

Low interest rate

I've been with them forever, and they've been really good to me, generally. If I need a loan or an overdraft, they'll do it. The PPI era was a pain, and that isn't settled yet, but that was forced on the staff and I don't hold it against them. I like that they'll proactively call me to ask if everything's OK and am I sure I don't want a cheaper account. I know the bosses are baddies, but the staff are nice and helpful.

The personal touch.

Sigh. Bankers.

I found various offers on a money website. I recently managed to get a very useful cash transfer from my Barclay card to my current account, and also have had low interest balance transfers to Barclays from other cards. This was all done over the phone, with no fuss, problems or delays. A very good service which I can heartily recommend without reservation.

I originally got this card to transfer my balances to which I did and was a relatively easy process. I manage my account online and this is really easy to do. I set up a direct debit easy enough which I can change on line whenever I want. It's all good. I've just added another balance n to it so I only have to pay one card off a month it's flexible and easy

Good for balance transfer and online management

I have banked with Barclays for the last 30+ years. I've always found them to be quite helpful in the UK, via phone or in the branches. However, since banks started to outsource their calls to overseas call centres, this has been the bane of my life. I just hate speaking to people who don't always appear to be able to help you. They talk over you, they don't always understand why you are calling them, or don't take the time to listen properly or ask the right questions, they talk to you in a condescending manner if they are unable to interpret your request. I find it very frustrating, when I have been on the phone for 60 minutes plus at times and still no further forward. We are all busy people and just because I work all day, when I get home from work and I need to contact my bank, I should not be penalised by being transferred to overseas employees, who do not appear to offer the same standards of customer service that is obtainable within the UK. If banks want to offer us an excellent customer service then please bring your call centres to the UK and listen to your customers for a change please!

Excellent online current bank account facilities

I have had a Barclaycard for many years, they kept increasing my credit limit and being poor with my finance I would max it out every time. More recently they have prevented me from going any higher and right to advise me on best practices to pay it off so they have clearly cleaned up their act a bit. I have had fraud on it and it was picked up straight away and the customer services was good.

Recommended by gturner1709

I joined Barclays 14 months ago as a result of being less than happy with another major Bank to which I belonged. The service I have received from Barclays has been mostly good and reassuring and I am very happy to continue with them, and to recommend them, They have an easy to use 'on line' banking system which is easy to use, and also offers full anti virus and other protection for your computer free of charge using Kaspersky, You can also pay in Barclays cheques direct into your account via on line banking also (so no need to go to the bank)...Barclays will be extending this service soon to include cheques fro other banking institutions in due course. Barclays offer a good range of products for both the young and the old (and those in between of course). As my wife and I are retired now we only need to use the main banking facilities but for others there are lots of opportunities to use a diverse and comprehensive range of services and facilities

easy on line banking

If you are thinking about applying remember shares can go up or down. You should look at the past performance of the share funds and also look at their fee structure as this can vary quite a lot. Also decide on the level of risk you want to take and remember it is best to take shares over the long period. I inherited the product. Customer service is very good,any questions are answered,dividends are paid regularly and information is provided regarding the funds performance.

Been with Barclays for over 30 years and in that time have converted friends and family into customers! Good customer service. Excellent online banking app and websites. Safe and reliable. Very easy to use. Very clear advice on things like timings when paying bills etc. Staff in branch have generally been helpful. Does what it is supposed to do, and does it well! Would recommend!
