Barclays offers one of the worst currency exchange rates there is... do not use them, they literally are ripping you off every time.
27th April 2018
Ordered currency on Tuesday and had Friday as collection day from local branch.Took funds from my account, but when I went to collect, no currency at branch. When investigated there was no evidence or tracking that money had even been sent out !!

Barclays Bank cheated me out of €3000.00 tried to get my money ,then Barclays offered me £200.00 good will manged to get £700.00 but it took nearly a year.My late parents worked fifty years and Barclays Promised me one rate then gave me another. Please change your money with someone else.I wish someone could help me but a single person stands no chance.A very good bank for changing cheques into South African rand at a very good rate getting round South African Exchange laws and helping South Africans getting there money out of South Africa.They did it for me in 1975 with help of Standard Chartered Bank Trafalger Square branch .all i had to do was call into Barclays Bank Main branch in Durban and give me name over the counter and my Rand cheque appeared it a enhanced rate.

Appalling exchange rate, even for regular customers who have an account with Barclays. Go to a supermarket like Asda or Tesco.

11th March 2015
Sick and tired of being ripped off by Barclays Bank for all banking transactions including foreign exchange. Avoid at all costs.
5th March 2015
Handy on the High Street but in retrospect the worst value you can get for £750.00 the top bank gives you 1020 euros and Barclays gives you about 45euros less Greedy bank!
13th February 2015
I've banked with Barclays for more years than I can remember. Their service is good but they only get 3 stars from me because their fees are so expensive compared to other banks. For example, to make a payment overseas Barclays charge a flat fee of £15 but HSBC only charge £4. Why the great difference? Surely the process is the same for all banks!
1st February 2015
Excellent service, rates lower than the general market, but FREE DELIVERY & new money. Would use again!
