How to easily earn Emirates Skywards Miles on hotel stays

Emirates is one of the most popular airlines in the world and its frequent flyer program, Skywards, boasts more than 27 million members worldwide.

That’s a lot of people who are earning Skywards Miles on flights and who could also be stocking up on miles during hotel stays.

The easiest way to earn Skywards miles on accommodation is via the airline’s partnership with Booking.com.

Skywards members can earn 1 mile per Euro spent on reservations made via booking.com.

To do this, you must begin your hotel search on the Emirates website, and then you’ll be redirected to booking.com to complete the reservation.

You can’t earn miles by going straight to booking.com yourself – rather you must start the search process on the Emirates website.

Emirates also has a range of direct partnerships with hotel brands that provide alternative (and potentially better) ways to earn Skywards miles.

These partners include the world’s biggest hotel brands, such as Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt and Intercontinental.

At Hyatt, for example, you can earn 500 Skywards Miles per eligible stay.

At Crowne Plaza, you can earn 2 Skywards Miles per USD spent.

With Marriott, if you’ve linked your Marriott Bonvoy and Emirates Skywards accounts, you can ‘double dip’ on points whenever you fly or stay with either company.

Don’t forget, if you have elite status with a hotel group and you want to enjoy your status benefits, you must book directly with the hotel – not via booking.com.

As always, you should compare your options as well the prices on various hotel booking websites to ensure you’re getting a good deal.

By the way, if you have family members who are also earning Skywards miles, you may be able to pool your points to be rewarded faster.

Happy travels!
