Accor is already your best bet for UK weekend hotel bookings as long as you are happy to leave your booking to the last minute. (One option is to have a flexible or points booking elsewhere as back-up).
Via Accor’s ‘Happy Mondays’ deal, every Monday and Tuesday, Accor makes a raft of UK hotel rooms available at discount prices for the following weekend.
You can only book on a Monday or Tuesday for the following weekend. Prices range from £25 for Ibis Budget hotels in London and Ibis hotels outside London, up to £60 for Mercure and Novotel hotels in central London.
The triple points offer
Until 30th April, Accor will give you triple base points on any two or more nights stays covering Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The rules are a vague about what happens if your stay covers other nights of the week. Does a Thursday to Sunday stay count? If so, do you just earn triple points for Friday and Saturday for all three nights?
You must register for this offer via this page on the Accor website.
Because Accor has different earning rates for each brand and tier bonuses, it is too painful to list every possible scenario of what you would earn – but it would be a decent return on your ‘already very low’ ‘Happy Mondays’ rate!
