Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

New Etihad discount codes and a points transfer bonus launched

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Etihad has launched two new discount codes, worth up to 15% off the cost of a flight booked over the next two weeks.

The codes are:

  • 15% off Economy Class flights – EYECO15
  • 15% off Business Class flights – EYBUS15

Here are the rules:

  • Book by 15th April
  • Economy: travel outbound between 1st May and 30th June, return by 31st July
  • Business: travel outbound between 1st July and 31st August, return by 31st August
  • Discount only applies to the base fare, so the actual discount will be noticeably lower than 10% in Economy and a little lower than 10% in Business
  • Valid for departures from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Switzerland, France, Spain, Italy and Netherlands

You can book via the Etihad website here.

Your best option to maximise your miles when paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold.  This offers double points – 2 per £1 – when you when you book flight tickets directly with an airline.  Our review of Amex Gold is here.

How to earn Etihad Guest miles from UK credit cards

How to earn Etihad Guest miles from UK credit cards (February 2024)

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.

Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:

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.

    Reminder in the paper today that Flybe are now strictly enforcing the cabin baggage policy with £50 penalty for small infringements.
    [Cabin baggage allowance and cost: One slim piece of cabin luggage that is no bigger than 55cm x 35cm x 20cm – including any wheels and handles – can be taken on board for free.
    You can also bring another smaller bag no larger than a handbag or laptop case – to be stowed under the seat in front of you for free.
    However, the combined weight of both bags must be no more than 10kg in total.
    Penalty if you exceed the cabin baggage limit: If the hand baggage is found to be too big or heavy at the departure gate you will be fined £50 and the bag will be stowed in the hold.]

    Doubletree is a bit random anyway so probably better as a Curio if you are having a major refurb in london
