No one will blame you for abandoning the cool Aussie air for the warmth of Abu Dhabi, especially when they hear you received two free nights in the Arabian city.

Etihad is giving Aussie travellers a good reason to stopover in Abu Dhabi by offering a free 48 hours in the UAE capital as part of its latest promotion.

Launched today, the offer sees Etihad cover two free nights of hotel accommodation for any guest who books a flight to and from all the airline’s destinations via Abu Dhabi.

Travellers can choose from one of 15 hotels, including the 5-star Intercontinental Abu Dhabi…


The uber-luxe Dusit Thani Abu Dhabi…


OR the Courtyard by Marriott WTC…



During the two-night layover, travellers will also be able to tick off several of the city’s must-do attractions (at their own expense), including a visit to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, Louvre Abu Dhabi and the newly opened Presidential Palace Qasr Al Watan.

Adrenaline seekers can check out the intense G-force experience of Ferrari World’s roller-coasters, while families hang out with their favourite superheroes at the recently opened Warner Bros World.

To take advantage of the offer, travellers need to see their Travel Advisor or visit the airline’s website from 10 April to 15 June 2019 and book flights departing between 21 April and 15 July 2019.
