We haven’t seen a spectacular rental car promotion in a while, but Avis’ most recent deal is one of them.
With this offer, you may currently earn up to 60,000 Etihad miles, which are worth $840 according to TPG estimates. Even while it may seem obvious at first, there are several key points to remember before getting too excited. For the bonus, you must reserve your rental car by tomorrow.
What you need know about this promotion is as follows.

With this Avis promotion, you can accrue up to 60,000 Etihad miles.
When you rent a car from Avis for a minimum of three consecutive days on a maximum of three qualifying reservations, you’ll receive 20,000 Etihad miles (60,000 miles earned). This is in addition to the Etihad miles you will accrue for your purchases, which range from 3 to 5 miles per dollar, depending on your status with the airline.
Details are as follows:
By GST 11:59 p.m. on August 17, 2022, you must make your car reservation.
You must pick up your reservation between September 1 and November 30, 2022.
All of the United States (apart from Alaska), Canada, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East are available for rent.
Cars of group C or higher must be rented.
You must use avisworld.com/etihad to book your reservation.
No Etihad miles will be awarded for rentals that are longer than 28 days.
To take part, you must be an Etihad Guest member.
You will also get a 15% rate discount, according to this deal. In actuality, we did not discover this to be true (more on that in a second).
Is this a decent offer?
In the United Arab Emirates, Etihad is the second-largest airline. For someone residing in the United States, that might not sound particularly useful, but Etihad miles are among the most underappreciated awards in the points and miles industry. You can book the following flights from the United States:
50,000 Etihad points for a roundtrip business class ticket on American Airlines to Europe.
44,000 Etihad miles for roundtrip business class travel on Royal Air Maroc to Morocco.
ANA business class roundtrip to Japan for 54,000 Etihad miles.
We checked several U.S. airports using this promotion to compare pricing with the usual Avis website because you must book through a unique Avis landing page. Rates were always comparable even though prices were occasionally marginally higher.
Let’s have a look at the price for a three-day rental at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) from the promotion page:
The same rental may be found here on the Avis website. The costs are the same.
Recall that your vehicle must reserve a “category C” or above. To see what group each car is in, click the “Specs” button on each one.
It should be noted that the “pay later” price is the only one that is applicable on this promotion page. When you make your reservation on Avis’ official website, you can receive a considerably better deal if you’re the kind of renter who chooses the “pay now” rate (which may be subject to cancellation fees of some kind).
Additionally, you are unable to connect into your Avis account on the promotion page to take advantage of any savings you might be eligible for owing to elite status.
You will receive 20,000 Etihad miles for each qualifying rental, and remember that each mile is worth 1.4 cents on average. Therefore, you will receive $280 worth of value for each renting period (capped at 3 rental periods). It could be preferable to use the standard Avis website if you can save more money by doing so.
In conclusion, for a limited period, Avis is doling out Etihad miles like candy. If the price is correct and you’re okay with the restrictions, you should think about using this Avis promotion for a few forthcoming rentals that will last at least three days.
If there are ridiculously low prices in your area, it might be worthwhile to reserve a rental car even if you don’t have any immediate intentions to do so. You might be able to use it to purchase a business class ticket to Europe, Africa, or Asia.
SPONSORED: Since several states have reopened, eating out no longer exclusively entails curbside pickup. Additionally, you should select a credit card that will optimize your benefits and perhaps even qualify you for exclusive discounts when you do make dining-related purchases. You could even be able to snag a free lunch at your preferred restaurant because to transient card incentives and modifications brought on by coronavirus. The finest credit cards for eating out, ordering takeout, and eating in are those listed here.
