Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Etihad and Etihad Guest

Etihad Guest is the frequent flyer program for Etihad. There are four tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

The Etihad website is here or you can top up your account by buying Etihad miles here.

Etihad Guest does not have its own UK credit card but you can transfer points earned from American Express Platinum (high fee, high bonus), American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (free for a year, good bonus) and Amex Rewards Credit Card (no fee, small bonus!).

Our complete guide to earning Etihad Guest miles from UK credit cards is here.
