Questions people are asking about Barclays
Are Barclays mortgages portable?
If you’re moving home and your current mortgage has a lower rate than deals provided by Barclays, you may be able to keep it when you move. You’ll need to check with your mortgage provider whether it is portable and whether there are any fees involved in the process.
Are Barclays personalised cards contactless?
The majority of new personalised cards will be contactless. If you order a personalised card to replace your original debit card and that was contactless, your new card will also be contactless.
Are Barclays Blue rewards taxable?
As Barclays Blue rewards are classed as cashback, they are tax-free.
The origins of the modern Barclays bank can be traced back to 1690 when it was first founded in London as a goldsmith bank. It wasn’t until the 17th Century that the name Barclays was associated with the bank when a man named James Barclay invested in the business.
