ETIHAD GUEST EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP WITH POINTS TO OFFER MEMBERS MORE TRAVEL REWARDS

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – Etihad Guest, the loyalty program of Etihad Airways, and Points, the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today further expanded their partnership to enable Etihad Guest members to earn miles through Travel Rewards when booking hotels and renting cars.

Launched in January 2018, Travel Rewards has proven popular amongst Etihad Guest members, as a platform to spend miles on thousands of competitively-priced hotels and rental car services globally. In addition, members can earn a minimum of 1,000 miles per night on hotel bookings and at least 250 miles per day for car rentals.

Yasser Al Yousuf, Etihad Guest Managing Director, said: “We are always looking for new ways to add value to our loyalty programme and now with a single integration, our growing partnership with industry leaders like Points, enable us to further enhance our Guest Miles proposition.”

Since March 2017, our members have been topping up their balance using Buy Miles. Now, over five million Etihad Guest members will have the ability to use Travel Rewards to not only redeem miles but earn bonus miles as well.

With the full breadth of the Points Travel service now deployed through one seamless booking interface, the Etihad Guest program now offers a comprehensive travel booking solution.

Rob MacLean, CEO of Points, said: “Our ever-expanding strategic partnership with Etihad Guest continues to focus on enhancing the loyalty program’s user experience, and engagement while driving exponential profitability.”
