Triple Avios with Le Club Accorhotels (Novotel, Sofitel, Ibis) to 31st March

Accor is the hotel group behind Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure, Ibis and M Gallery, amongst others.  It has teamed up with British Airways to offer triple Avios points on stays until the end of March.

To qualify for the ‘triple points’ offer, you must select British Airways Executive Club as your earnings partner in your Le Club Accorhotels account.  You do NOT have to register for the promotion.  There is also no minimum stay – last time they ran this promotion, you had to stay at least two nights.

As you can see here on the BA website, the standard earning rate with Accor is 1 Avios per €1 (0.5 Avios per €1 at Ibis) so this becomes 3 per €1 (1.5 at Ibis).  This is not a bad return, although remember that many hotel groups give a flat 500 Avios points per stay as their standard reward.

You would still need to spend at least €170 with Accor to earn 500 Avios – whilst Club Carlson, IHG Rewards Club and Hyatt Gold Passport give you 500 Avios per stay every day of the year, even for one-night stays, if you choose to take miles instead of points.

  1. Just a word of warning. When I used this promotion in the past, the triple points did not post automatically. I contacted both BA and Accor and each pointed the finger at the other. It took about 3 months before I could finally get BA to actually work with Accor to sort it out together.

    Also, be aware that only the base points get tripled – not any bonus points you generate as an Accor elite member. So if you are Accor Platinum for example (perhaps through Amex Plat) your points would effectively be doubled, not tripled.

  2. Reading this post made me think of a question I had before, but which I never fully answered: is it better to have the earning options for hotels set as points or miles? I’m sure the answer is “it depends”, but… ;))

    • With Accor, it is actually simple. If you take Accor points, they have a fixed value in € when you redeem them. It is therefore easy enough to work out how much you would get in € Accor vouchers vs how many Avios you would get.

  3. This might be of some use to some. I got through an offer on an old Le Club Accor account for 5 x points on my next stay. Enter your Le Club number and e-mail and then book between 28th Jan and 18th Feb 2014. I’m in and out of Mercures in Feb/Mar/Apr and have already booked my rooms but it seems this only works if you book on-line so will have to cancel one of my current bookings. It’s only valid for one booking however so make it a big’un!
