In an attempt to “tie-in” customers as flights begin to resume worldwide, Etihad Airways has launched new travel vouchers which are redeemable against future flights, and is currently offering a 50 per cent cash bonus on purchases.

The Etihad Travel Vouchers can be purchased in increments of US$250 up to a maximum of US$65,000, and once bought are added to a Travel Bank for use by the customer. Note that you must be an Etihad Guest member to purchase the vouchers.

The current bonus is available for purchases made by June 24, and will see an extra 50 per cent credit added to the Travel Bank – so a customer buying US$1,000 in vouchers will receive a total of US$1,500.

The voucher can then be used to pay for “flights, upgrades and extras” from August 1, 2020, and is valid for two years.

The purchaser can use the voucher to buy flights for others, even if they are not travelling on the booking themselves, and vouchers can also be purchased for others as a gift.

Customers must call the Etihad Airways contact centre on to buy the voucher, but once purchased it can be redeemed online by choosing the Travel Bank option as the form of payment during the booking process.

The remaining value of the voucher can be seen online when making a booking, or by emailing [email protected].

Etihad has been gradually increasing flights from its Abu Dhabi base, with connections now available to and from a total of 20 European, Asian and Australian cities.
