That looks to be a great deal, though I notice that the headline reservation period differs from that in the T&C (the latter dates have already passed) - I can imagine potential issues with getting the bonus credited🤔
May well be worth a try though🤞

I note that T's & C's specify "participating locations" but I cannot see these listed? Anyone?

Rates at the avisworld.com/Etihad link are substantially higher in some cases (sometimes 3X) the rates in the Avis app (no AWD entered).

Anyone else noticed this?

Looking at a reservation for next month, the Etihad offer rate is around $200 more than I can find elsewhere. Which I suppose is about $0.01 per Etihad point earned.

Has anyone actually made a successful booking at the promo site? No matter what credit card I enter I keep getting an error msg. (Sorry, we're unable to complete your payment using those details. Please make sure they're correct. (EP101))

Gave up too. EY's IT/Promos/T's&C's etc etc have often been a pain - same as usual here..sigh.

I've made two reservations (three days each) back in August, and completed them both in the last week or so.
Now waiting to see how long it takes for miles to post (or not)...

Paid 17 per day (which was on par with other companies at the same location), so 102 for 40k, which was too good to pass.
