If you were at our Summer Party on Monday, you will have heard Gurdeep from Etihad Holidays talk about the Etihad Holidays packages to the Formula 1 grand prix in November. This is the last race on the 2018 calendar.
You can find out more here. You need to book by 31st July to get the current special rates. Packages include entrance to the after race concerts which include The Weeknd, Sam Smith and Guns N Roses.
Packages start at £999 per person including flights, hotel, race entry and all the after-race events which would appear, frankly, excellent value to anyone who has ever looked at the cost of attending the British Grand Prix. And you get a weekend away in the sun in November ….
In addition, if you are not already an Etihad Guest member, you can sign up here and receive 500 bonus miles.
How to earn Etihad Guest miles from UK credit cards (June 2021)
Etihad Guest does not have a UK credit card. However, you can earn Etihad Guest miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards. These are:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 20,000 Etihad Guest miles. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 30,000 Etihad Guest miles
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 5,000 Etihad Guest miles. This card is FREE for life.
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Etihad Guest miles which is an attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Etihad Guest mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.
Etihad Guest is also a partner with the HSBC Premier Mastercard (0.5 miles per £1 spent) and HSBC Premier World Elite Mastercard (1 mile per £1 spent).
