Customer service is incompetent and it will cost you!!

Barclays Insurance has the wrong name for my partner on our insurance. They admit that it's wrong. They know that it invalidated my insurance if we have to file and claim despite the fact that they are very much collecting money for the policy. yet THEY WILL NOT CHANGE IT!!!

Worst experience, worst bank

They have the worst claims method which takes forever and they use any reason not too support. I have had to make 2 claims and on both they denied. Then when I proved the initial denial against their own terms they found another reason to deny. This has happened on both of my claims which are reasonable and fair claims according to their terms. I would never recommend them. They were not supportive or helpful at all. Just asked for an email where they can find a way to deny your claim through your wording or lack thereof.

If I could give no stars

I have been a Barclays customer for 4 decades and felt extremely confident having annual insurance with Barclays/Aviva. That was the case until I made a claim for a lost 24hrs of my holiday. The airline compensated delayed flight but said I should claim on my travel insurance for the loss of the day and night of my vacation. After almost a fortnight I received an email with OUTCOME OF CLAIM as subject. I was refused compensation with a lame excuse that my policy did not cover this. It’s the only policy they offer and surely travel insurance covers something which goes wrong on your travels. I have replied explaining that this is not acceptable and I have received no reply. I notice some 5 star reviews reflecting the sign up process. However, it’s the appalling treatment upon trying to make a claim which deserves one or no stars. Disgusted and will leave.

I like them as a bank - But don't expect any help from their travel insurance.

I only tried to use this service once, when we were given incorrect ferry times by SailRail from Dublin to Holyhead - So had to stay overnight in Dublin. Barclays travel insurance simply threw their example wording at me, and essentially said "go away". I've used various travel insurance companies before and never had an issue in the rare moment of a claim. As such, I've spent days finding out which rail company is responsible (none of them apparently). NOTE that we were told by Irish Ferries that SailRail have been providing the incorrect ferry times for months! Be warned, and check them before travelling. Reviewed on: 16th March 2023
