If international travel is on your bucket list — again or for the first time — remember that every point matters.

The next time you book a rental car, make sure to get Emirates Skywards Miles at no additional cost to you. Simply book with a rental car company that has Emirates Airlines as a travel partner, and begin earning.

Some of the rental car companies that partner with Emirates include:
Thrifty Car Rental
Hertz Car Rental
Budget Car Rental
Dollar Car Rental

You can earn 500-1,000 Emirates Skywards Points per rental. Emirates reward flights begin at 15,000 points one way. So if you are a frequent rental car user, this could lead to a free flight quickly.

Want even more points? Make sure to use a travel credit card in addition to this. And make sure you know how your credit card can help with rental car insurance.

NerdWallet does not guarantee these promotions.
