Frequent Flyer Bonuses has identified that Etihad Guest is out with a new car rental offer that’s good this time for 25,000 miles with an Avis rental of 3 days or more. Just like the last time they ran a promo like this, you’ll have to be able to book quickly and the travel window is relatively brief, but this offer appears to be repeatable for up to 3 rentals, which could be a great deal if you need the car rental anyway.

Quick Thoughts

Car rentals have become very expensive over the past couple of years and this can really help mitigate the cost if you can get a decent price through the portal.

With this promotion, you get a solid rebate in 25,000 Etihad Guest miles. While Etihad miles aren’t the most valuable miles in existence, there are still a number of sweet spots using Etihad miles for premium cabin international travel (like 22K miles one-way in economy class from the east coast to Casablanca on Royal Air Maroc – or 44K miles in business class – or the US to Japan or Korea on American Airlines for 25K miles). See: EEtihad Guest Sweet Spots for award tickets in business class or economy for more good values in the Etihad Guest program.

At a base level, I think it wouldn’t be too tough to get at least 1c per mile out of Etihad miles if their partners fit your needs (and you can obviously get much more). That makes the rebate here worth at least $250 to those who can find good use for Etihad miles.

Unfortunately, the booking page doesn’t necessarily return the best of prices. Last time around, I looked up qualifying 3-day rentals in several different cities and I came up with prices in the $200-$250 range. While that doesn’t make this promotion rental-run worthy, it does make this a great deal if you actually need a rental since the combination of a 3-day rental and 25K miles at those prices seems great in the current market.

Of course, you’ll want to shop around. I strongly recommend checking prices against Autoslash and/or tracking your rental through Autoslash to look for a better deal. Still, if you need a 3-day rental (or a couple of them), it would have to be a pretty big price discrepancy to make this deal not worth some consideration. It definitely makes sense to shop around, but this deal looks pretty good to me. Just be sure to carefully check the terms and make sure you’re renting a qualifying car.

I am renting three days in Nashville in December. Auto slash, Hertz for mid size SUV = $227. Through Etihad, and Avis, same car =$354-545. Deal not worth the squeeze.



Are ethiad miles that useful?
Can I do back to back rentals to maximize the earning?
Chances I won’t have to fight for the bonus?


“Sorry, this rate isn’t available online right now. Please call 0808 284 0013. (EX016)”
Poor form from Avis, but fully expected


I was surprised to see the prices just as good if not better than autoslash…and not crazy more than a discount code I use on enterprise. Just switched some reservations over


I checked on and it was $547 with only Luxury cars available. . .
