As part of a long-term strategic alliance, the Royal Bank and Esso have introduced the first proprietary card of its kind in The Bahamas. In addition to banking at one of the five Royal Bank ATMs at Esso stations, residents can use the credit card to purchase petrol and products at participating petroleum outlets — currently 12 of the 14 stations in New Providence. It is planned to extend the service to the remaining two outlets and to the Out Islands of The Bahamas in the near future.
