Barclays has announced another round of bank branch closures, with 15 more locations set to shut. The first lot of closures will come as soon as March this year.
The latest closures mean Barclays will close at least 26 branches by the end of the year. However, Barclays isn’t the only bank shutting branches as this year HSBC will close 114 branches, NatWest is closing 43 and Lloyds Bank will shut 14.
The news will no doubt put more customers in a difficult situation if they do not have access to online banking, and their nearest branch is closing down. Those looking for face to face interaction with the bank may consider using the educational and support van run by the bank.
The van enables Barclays and Barclaycard customers in England and Wales to access certain advice and help in their local area at specific times and dates each month. You can check if a nearby town is covered on Barclays’ website. However, it’s worth noting that Barclays’ van service and pop-up locations don’t have cash or counter services, so you won’t be able to manage your money there.
Money Saving Expert advises that customers that don’t have alternative services nearby and need branch access may need to consider switching banks.
Additionally, If you need to access your bank but can’t get online customers may be able to access some services via the Post Office. Use the Post Office’s branch finder tool to locate your nearest. The services you can use this way include cashing/cheque deposits, checking your balance and withdrawing money.
