You basically just need to check into the Waldorf Astoria

In the 2006 Casino Royale reboot, we’re not only introduced to Daniel Craig as 007, but also a new explanation of his association with Aston Martin. But while Bond wins his in a high stakes poker game in the Bahamas, you can drive one for free in the UAE by simply checking in to the Waldorf Astoria – no mid-level Bond villain required.

A global partnership between Aston Martin Lagonda and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts – you can also get the driving experience at properties in Edinburgh, Atlanta and Las Vegas – take a seat behind the wheel of either an Aston Martin Vantage or DB11 V12 on a journey between the hotel’s two luxury properties in Ras al Khaimah and Palm Jumeirah.

Channel your inner-Bond on the 90-minute drive through desert and by ocean, with an expert in the passenger seat to talk you through it all (no, there isn’t an ejector seat) and then get driven back to your hotel via luxury transfer.

But not so fast, 007. These drives are currently scheduled for November 2-3 and on a first come first served basis, so booking early is advisable. You just need to be 25 and over and with a license to drive (that part to be sung à la Gladys Knight from the License To Kill theme).

If you’re looking to really go all out, then perhaps book the WA driving package and get the driving experience, dinner and a spa treatment all included. It’s a deal which, if we’re honest, sounds like a whole other Bond experience to us.
