Etihad is currently promoting its Etihad Holidays packages with an absolute guarantee. If it rains, Etihad will provide you each with a complimentary holiday “up to the same value or less”.

Simply book a break in Abu Dhabi, and if there is more than 5mm of rain during your stay, Etihad will give you with a replacement holiday absolutely free – up to the same value.

Book by 31st March for travel from 1st May until 30th September 2017 although confusingly the small print talks about stays between 1st June and 31st August. Looking at the rainfall averages in Abu Dhabi, the chance of experiencing rainfall is very low and the chance of even going outside for long is very low (with temperatures averaging in the 40’s), but there are some fabulous hotels in this region if you can brave the heat, and they are much cheaper in the summer.

And where to stay? We love the ultra-luxury Banana Island Resort in particular, just a short helicopter flight from the airport. If you do book with this offer, we hope it rains while you are there!
