Abu Dhabi: Free hotel stays for Etihad Airways fliers

Al Jahili Fort in Al Ain is one of Abu Dhabi’s cultural treasures. Travelers may visit the city on a free two-night stopover from Etihad Airways.

Etihad Airways offers a free two-night stopover in Abu Dhabi for travelers continuing on to other destinations. It’s a chance to explore places such as the Louvre Museum and newly opened Presidential Palace in the capital of the United Arab Emirates.

The deal: Start by booking airfares that stop in Abu Dhabi at the airline’s website. Then book a room at one of 15 hotels, including the luxury InterContinental, Le Méridien and the Dusit Thani, as well as the Radisson Blu Yas Island and two Crowne Plazas.

When: Reserve your flights by June 15 for travel between April 21 and July 15, based on availability.

Tested: Etihad flies in and out of LAX. I found an airfare available in May between Los Angeles and Mumbai, India, that qualifies for the free stopover. The economy airfare cost $1,078, with tax and fees.
