The utu and Etihad Guest partnership will allow travellers to upsize benefits and tax rebates
Singapore-based travel-tech company utu has announced that Etihad Guest, the frequent flyer programme of the UAE’s national airline Etihad Airways, will now allow Etihad Guest members to shop tax-free globally with the utu Tax-Free Card.
“With nearly eight million members globally, we’re constantly innovating and expanding our network of global partners to provide even greater rewards for being an Etihad Guest member,” remarked Kim Hardaker, Etihad’s Vice President Loyalty & Partnerships.
Under the partnership, Etihad Guest members can now use the utu Tax-Free Card to earn 6,250 miles (worth US$ 125) for every US$ 100 tax refunded on the utu Tax-Free Card.
“We are incredibly excited to announce our new partnership with Etihad Guest. For utu travellers, it is even more exciting as they can now select one of the most popular airline programmes, Etihad Guest, as their rewards programme when converting their VAT refunds to miles,” said Asad Jumabhoy, CEO & Co-Founder, utu.
The utu tax-free card is available to customers globally. To participate, Etihad Guest members must download the utu Tax-Free mobile app from iOS or Google Play, activate the utu Tax-Free Card, and select Etihad Guest as their reward programme to receive their VAT refund in miles.
