News in brief:
Book a UK Accor hotel for the Bank Holiday from £25
Accor’s ‘Happy Mondays’ is the most generous hotel promotion available for last minute weekend rooms in the UK. If you find yourself in need of a hotel room for the following weekend, it is definitely the best place to look.
It is nice and simple, and potentially a good deal. Every Monday and Tuesday, Accor makes a raft of UK hotel rooms available at discount prices for the following weekend.
Because it is a Bank Holiday weekend, Accor has extended the offer. You can book at these very aggressive rates for the coming Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights. Remember, though, you must book by midnight TONIGHT (Tuesday).
Here is the Happy Mondays booking page – click here. This is a summary of the deal:
These are ‘room only’ deals and only some Accor hotels will be participating on any particular date
The headline 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 Mercure London Bridge was £180 in total for three nights when I checked yesterday – the next cheapest rate was £439!
You must book via this special Accor booking page here
Bookings will earn Le Club Accor Hotels points
Even better, your booking should count for the current generous Accor / Avios promotion. As you can read here, you will earn 500 bonus Avios from your first 2-night stay (registration required).

Update on the AwardWallet upgrade codes
Last month I gave away 95 6-month upgrade codes for AwardWallet, the miles and points balance tracking service. You can read more about it here.
Over 1,000 HFP readers asked for a code. Luckily, AwardWallet generously made additional codes available so that everyone could have one. It obviously took me some time to write 1,000 emails but, finally, I finished them off yesterday.
A handful of codes were faulty. I replaced those that did not work when they were reported – if you tried to redeem yours, found it didn’t work but didn’t let me know, do send it back to me and I will send a new one.
There are no more codes available at the moment so please don’t email to ask for one now. I will give away more later in the year as AW keeps giving me them whenever HFP readers sign up.
