Getting a short-term loan is as easy as completing a quick online loan application

We offer means of borrowing, our interest rates are fixed according to your personal needs and we are able to advise you on what your loan rate will be before you apply for a loan; this will not affect your credit score in any way.

  • Personal Loan - Should you already have a current account with us you could check to see you qualify for a provisional loan and we'll tell you what your rate will be before applying. All personal loans are subjected to status and you'll be pleased to know that there are no fees if you want to settle your loan earlier.
  • Benefits - We're unlike most other lenders; in a lot of cases we'll offer you a personalised price quote up front. You'll able to see the actual rate you'll be getting plus the quotation won't affect your credit score.
  • Money without delay – You could possibly receive your short-term loan immediately as long as: - you've applied online and your application has been approved.

All you need to do is download your agreement and mail it back to us between 7am-10.30pm. Your monthly repayments will be fixed which is great when you want to budget.

Why we suggest you apply for a Barclayloan!

  • Top-up option – Should you already be a Barclayloan customer and you are in need of more money, you can apply to increase your loan with us. You also have the option of applying for a second loan instead of using our top-up option
  • Decide on your payment term – Depending on your loan amount, you can decide how you would prefer to make repayment. You can either pay in full settlement or you could increase your monthly repayment to pay the loan off earlier. However, we do charge a fee that is equal to 30 days of interest calculated on the amount that you are repaying and any other interest that would be due.
  • Eligibility – You need to be 18 years of age or older, have a current account with Barclay's and have UK residency.

Quick online applications

Should you want to talk to us about a loan, you can contact us over the phone or if you would prefer to talk to us in person you could find a branch nearest to you, our professional team are available and more than willing to discuss your loan options.

Please note – If you have difficulties in applying for a Barclayloan, you're not able to see your provisional quick loan limit or have access to your personalised price quote, please contact us and we'll assist you with your options, as there are certain restrictions in place that need to be applied.

To register only takes 10 minutes of your time, however, you do need to be registered for Barclays Mobile Banking or Online Banking, and if you're not registered it may take a bit longer.

Take care of your pin, online log-in details and your cards or any other secured information to prevent fraud and assist us to protect your accounts with Barclay's.
