Emirates is kicking off the festive season with the chance for customers to earn thousands of Skywards miles on flights, hotels and car rentals across the board.
If you’re a member of Emirates Skywards, you could pick up thousands of extra points on bookings made between now and September 2023. If you’re not already a member, now might be the time to consider signing up.
Some of the deals expire later than others, so you might have to be quick. But let’s get down to it.
Earn 12,000 points per night when booking with Skywards Hotels
By far the most eye-catching deal is the chance to earn up to 12,000 Skywards miles per night. It’s actually a culmination of existing rewards bolted onto a new 2,000-point limited-time bonus, but it’s still extremely generous and breaks down like this:
Earn up to 10,000 miles per night on any hotel booking at any time. (The number of miles earned per night differs per property but with over 400,000 hotels to choose from globally you shouldn’t have too much trouble.)
If you book between now and Nov. 18, you’ll earn a special bonus of 2,000 miles.
If you have an Emirates cobranded credit card, you could add another 2,500 bonus miles per night when you book your stay. This would take the top-end earnings to 14,500 miles.
Either way, to make the most of the offer with Emirates’ Skywards Hotels, you need to book before Nov. 18 (when the 2,000-mile bonus ends).
Double your Skywards miles when staying at specific hotel chains
That’s not all: From Nov. 18, Skywards members will be able to earn double the miles on stays at the following hotels:
Rotana Hotels and Resorts, which covers much of Africa and the Middle East, until Dec. 31, 2022. Again, not a lot of time to book but still a brilliant deal.
All IHG properties, including InterContinental, Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza, Hualuxe, Voco and Atwell Suites, until Jan 18, 2023.
Jumeirah Hotels and Resorts until Sept. 20, 2023.
Earn a bonus of 5,000 Skywards miles with car rental
Another great way to earn Skywards miles in Emirates’ big promotion is on four wheels. Rent a car with Avis, Sixt or Hertz for five consecutive days (between Nov. 18, 2022, and March 31, 2023) and you can earn up to 5,000 bonus Skywards miles.
