Barclaycard swaps Nectar for travel insurance

04 July 2005
Barclaycard has announced that it will no longer be participating in the Nectar scheme, and will instead be offering cardholders the chance to take advantage of travel insurance.

From August 31st 2005, Barclaycard will stop awarding points under the Nectar scheme, and from September 1st, holidays booked through the Barclaycard Travel Service and paid for on Barclaycard will benefit from complementary travel insurance.

"We are constantly reviewing and developing the services and offers we provide to customers, based on their feedback," explained Mark Gonnella, consumer affairs director for Barclaycard.

"The vast majority are now saying to us very clearly that they value the back-up support we provide, particularly when it comes to travel. We have decided to make this change as a result."

Travel insurance will be available for groups of up to six people, and will include winter sports cover.
