Travellers booking hotels through the accommodation platform Booking.com can now earn Etihad Guest miles on all reservations.

Etihad airways and Booking.com have partnered to offer travellers free Etihad Guest miles on any hotel bookings made through the accommodation website, valid from August 1.

Customers can earn between three and six Etihad miles for every $1 Booking.com. Reward rates depend on the level of accommodation booked.

These miles will be automatically credited to Etihad Guest accounts eight to 12 weeks after the hotel stay is complete. Travellers can use them to redeem flights or upgrades with Etihad Airways. Customers can also opt to redeem miles with Etihad’s 20 other partner airlines which include American Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines and Alitalia.

Travellers looking to earn miles must make reservations from the co-branded booking page at booking.com/etihadguest and the relevant Etihad Guest Miles number must be provided when confirming a booking.

Yasser Al Yousuf from Etihad Airways said: “Through this partnership with Booking.com, we are delighted to give travellers the ability to earn Etihad Guest Miles not only when booking flights, but their accommodation as well.”

Travellers who are not already registered with Etihad Guest can sign up online before reserving a hotel stay with Booking.com. The offer is also valid for hotels in the UAE, so you can earn air miles with your next staycation.
