About Barclays

Over many years of excellent service and trusted advice, Barclays has become a trusted name in the UK. Our staff are highly trained to maximize the customer experience and ensure your financial success.

We don’t offer short term loans or loans that are specifically designed as vehicle financing instead our online personal loans can be used in order to purchase a vehicle. Using a personal loan to purchase a car means that you won’t be subjected to the restrictions that are normally associated with car loans. Apply for a personal loan of up to £50,000 that can be used to purchase a vehicle. The amount that your loan will be approved for will depend on your individual level of affordability.

With Barclays you can get a quick car loan from the comfort of your home

Our vehicle loans allow you to have the cash paid directly into your account so that you can have it on hand when you enter the car dealership. 

Knowing exactly how much you have to spend will increase your bargaining power and find something in your price range. Our loans cover both new and used vehicles as well as private sellers.

Your budget will be the biggest deciding factor in how much money you borrow. The price you are willing to pay for the vehicle will determine the make and model as well as the fuel type. Research options on cars that are available to get a basic idea of their prices and special features.

Things to consider:

If you are buying a used car you should make sure that you inspect it for any damage and make sure that you aren’t buying someone else’s problems. Make sure that the car has never been in an accident and that all the vehicle part numbers match the DVLA’s records.

Take the car for at least a 30-minute test drive to ensure that there are no problems and you can see the driving conditions.

Trade in or sell your current vehicle

Another way to get your hands on a new vehicle is to trade in your existing vehicle.  Make sure that you get the most money possible for your vehicle by having it evaluated at different dealerships and researching the price online. Make sure you are getting a good deal then use the money you get for your current vehicle as a deposit on your new car.

If you prefer to sell your car directly we will be able to assist you with a fair deal. Upgrade your wheels the simple way by applying for one of our car loans today.

Vehicle financing options if you don’t have cash

If you don’t have the cash on hand to buy a new vehicle then you can apply for one of our other vehicle financing options.

  • Hire purchase
  • Leasing
  • PCP (personal contact payment)
  • Or a bank online loan 

Our consultants are there to offer you expert financial advice and guidance so that you can drive away in your new car as quickly as possible.

Apply online to see if you qualify and you will receive an obligation free quote. This will allow you to shop around with confidence until you find exactly what you are looking for.
