Etihad Guest, the multi-airline loyalty program of Etihad Airways, has collaborated with Rev Worldwide and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (ADIB) to launch a reloadable multi-currency prepaid Visa card with walletplus feature.
Etihad Guest card with walletplus, which will be rolled out to Etihad Guest Tier members in the UAE in March, will allow travellers to earn Etihad Guest Miles when they shop at Visa merchants worldwide and choose from 11 currency options to lock-in rates before travel.
The new walletplus feature will offer 1 Etihad Guest Mile for every $2 spent in the UAE and 1 Etihad Guest Mile per $1 abroad.
Etihad Guest managing director Yasser Al Yousuf said: "The new Etihad Guest loyalty program focuses on providing features and benefits that enhance the value to its members.
"The new Etihad Guest card with walletplus is innovative in that it combines the functionality of a reloadable payment card with the benefits of Etihad Guest membership in a single piece of plastic, a first in loyalty and travel payments in the Middle East."
