Amazing Deal: 25,000 Etihad Miles For An Avis Rental

7

Lots of airline loyalty programs have partnerships with rental car companies, which is an opportunity to earn airline miles for renting cars. At the moment Etihad has an especially lucrative promotion for Avis rentals, which is worth considering if you have any upcoming rental car needs.

25K Etihad miles for a three day Avis rental

As first flagged by Frequent Flyer Bonuses, Etihad Guest has an amazing promotion right now, as you can earn 25,000 bonus Etihad Guest miles when completing an Avis rental of three or more days:

  • You must book between October 28 and October 31, 2022, at this link
  • You must pick-up your rental between November 1 and December 23, 2022; the rental must be completed by December 31, 2022
  • You must rent in the United States (excluding Alaska), Canada, Europe, Middle East, Africa, or Asia
  • You must rent a Group C car or above
  • Etihad Guest members can take advantage of this promotion up to three times
  • This is in addition to the standard Etihad Guest mileage earning rates for Avis rentals, which is at least three miles per dollar spent
Earn 25K Etihad miles for a three day Avis rental

This is an amazing offer

With this promotion, I’m seeing three day rentals in many cities pricing out around ~$200 all-in. That’s a pretty amazing deal — personally I value Etihad Guest miles at 1.1 cents each, so to me the miles alone could justify the cost of a rental.

Avis rentals cost ~$200 in many markets

The major catch is that Etihad Guest is a bit of a niche program. This isn’t Air Canada Aeroplan or American AAdvantage, so I’d only want to acquire Etihad Guest miles at that rate with a specific redemption in mind. I wouldn’t want to rent specifically to earn the miles, only to have 25,000 Etihad Guest miles and not know what to do with them.

On the plus side, Etihad Guest miles are pretty easy to earn with transferable points currencies. Etihad Guest is transfer partners with Amex Membership RewardsCapital One, and Citi ThankYou, so that gives you lots of options for topping off your account.

Bottom line

For a limited time you can earn 25,000 bonus Etihad Guest miles for an Avis rental of three or more days. This is one of the best rental car promos we’ve ever seen for earning miles, and you could easily rack up 25,000+ miles with a ~$200 rental.

This has the potential to be a great offer, especially if you know how to redeem Etihad Guest miles. While I wouldn’t do a “rental car run” to take advantage of this, I’d certainly prioritize this promo if you have any upcoming rental car needs.

Do you plan on taking advantage of this Etihad rental car promo with Avis?

    Sorry, this rate isn't available online right now. Please call 0808 284 0013. (EX016)

    If the system is not ready and this promotion is launched, is it considered cheating to actually be able to participate at all?

    Cheapest one-day rental through the Etihad link locally is USD150, so forget it!

    Still waiting on my 20K bonus from Avis and Etihad when they ran this similar promotion back in August. I get error messages on Avis’s website when I fill out the form to claim missing miles.

    Anyone know who I should be contacting? Heard that Avis directs you to Etihad and vise versa.

    I've got a rental coming up in Israel and I actually wanted a smaller car for some of the narrower streets there. But the smalls are A and B. To get to a C car or higher it's midsize. I wonder if there's any wiggle room in that.

    Well it's Avis after all... Poor showing still.

    Doesn't work for rentals in Mexico? I have an upcoming rental in Mexico, but reading the terms it looks like Mexico is not included.

    I also have a rental in Canada, but only for 2 days. I think if I book for 3 days, but return only after 2 days, I won't get the miles.
