If you want to pick up some additional Etihad Guest miles, there’s an easy way to do so, but you need to act quickly. When you rent a car through Avis for 3 or more days, you’ll have the opportunity to earn 25,000 Etihad Guest miles. Cars need to be booked by October 31, 2022, so if you’re interested in this offer you want to do so ASAP.

What You Need To Know

  • You need to book your car rental by October 31, 2022.
  • You can pick up your car anytime between November 1, 2022, through December 23, 2022.
  • Eligible destinations for pickup include all of the U.S. (excluding Alaska), Canada, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia (excluding Oceania).
  • In order to be eligible for this offer, you need to reserve a Group C car or above. This means you need to essentially reserve a mid-size class or higher; this isn’t the most expensive car, but isn’t the cheapest, either.
  • So long as your rental is 3 consecutive days or more, you’ll receive the 25,000 bonus miles in your account.
  • Making the deal even sweeter, you can save 15% off your rental if you’re an Etihad Guest member.

In order to book, head on over to the official promotion page.

It’s worth noting that miles will post to your account within 4 to 6 weeks from the end of the promotion.

One other important note is that you cannot book your rental using a corporate contract or government rate — you need to book it straight through the promotion website and there can’t be any additional discount. These corporate discounts often lower car rental rates significantly, but you’ll have to forgo such a discount here.

Final Thoughts

Earning 25,000 Etihad Guest miles for a 3-day car rental is quite the steal. Even if you don’t have a need for a car rental, it may be worth picking one up simply to earn the miles, though you’ll of course want to do the math to see if this makes sense. If you want to earn these miles, be sure to reserve your rental by the end of October 31!
