When you call Barclays using this telephone number, you have to navigate through an automated menu before you can speak to a person. The first option is to press 1 if you are reporting a lost or stolen Barclays card. You should hold if you are calling about anything else, and you will then have the chance to enter your debit card or telephone banking number if you are a customer. Otherwise, you can press the star key, and either enter your sort code or press the star key again. This is now your chance to state clearly in a few words the reason for your call. The service can then connect you to the right place. Holding briefly will automatically transfer the call to their telephone banking team.
