What is Worldwide Assistance?

If you run into trouble when you’re abroad, our Worldwide Assistance helpline is open 24 hours a day to help you out. We can offer:

  • a local English-speaking lawyer or doctor
  • transport to get you home as soon as possible
  • an interpreter to assist you with the local language
  • a messaging service so you can get in touch with home

You can also register your passport, camera, laptop and iPod serial numbers with us before you travel - so we can help you with police reports and insurance claim forms if anything goes missing or is stolen.

To get in touch with our Worldwide Assistance service, just give us a call on 0800 151 0900 from the UK or +44 (0) 1604 230 230 from abroad. For call charge details click here. We also offer a Next Generation Text or SignVideo service. For more information visit barclaycard.co.uk/accessibility.
