Bank of Scotland plans to give James Bond fans a licence to spend when it launches a new 007 credit card in the New Year.
The MasterCard will be marketed by TransNational and backed by the Bank of Scotland. It will sport a Bond logo that should be the envy of all would-be secret agents.
TransNational divisional general manager David Williams-Jones says: "You won't get a licence to kill with this credit card. It will simply offer the usual facilities of an affinity card."
The card is expected to be launched in mid-January soon after the release of the new James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies on December 12.
Unfortunately the card will not guarantee access to the glamorous Bond trappings of Aston Martins, vodka martinis and beautiful women.
