Emirates frequent flyer programme adds Europcar to its partners

Emirates Skywards, the frequent flyer programme of Emirates Airline, has partnered with Europcar to award Emirates Skywards members miles for every booking with Europcar.

Members will earn 600 miles on rentals at all Europcar locations with gold and platinum members eligible for an additional 200 bonus miles per rental.

If a premium car is booked all membership tiers will earn a total of 1,000 miles.*

Members can redeem their earned miles for a range of rewards. Redemption options include hotel accommodation, sporting events access, excursions and exclusive shopping, as well as flights and upgrades.

A round-trip in economy class from London to Dubai, for example, can be redeemed for 45,000 miles.

Emirates Skywards also permits miles to be transferred to friends and family and are earned on every Emirates flight and on every fare.

Brian LaBelle, senior vice president at Emirates Skywards, and Marcus Bernhardt, chief commercial officer of Europcar Group, recently signed the agreement at a ceremony held at Emirates Airline Headquarters in Dubai.

LaBelle said: “New strategic partners, such as Europcar, give additional opportunities to earn miles and we are committed to offering more choice and flexibility. This partnership provides members with another terrific opportunity to earn miles faster and redeem them for a range of exclusive rewards and benefits.”

Bernhardt said: “We share a common customer focus: both our brands stand for high quality and customer satisfaction. This move will help us pursue our expansion in this growing market."
