UPDATE – AUGUST 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
The link above includes information on Accor’s current double points promotion for stays in Europe, which runs until 5th September. You can register here.
This is possibly the most generous Avios hotel promotion of the year in terms of earning airline miles.
Accor is the hotel group behind Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure, Ibis and M Gallery, amongst others. It has teamed up with avios.com (NOTE not British Airways) to offer 2,500 Avios points on stays until the end of the year. Full details are here.
To earn the bonus, you must select Avios (not 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 and, importantly, no limit to the number of times you can earn the bonus.
This promotion appears to replace the standard earning rate of 1 Avios point per Euro 1 spent.
Further details can be found here at the Accor website. It states clearly that ‘all room rates are eligible’ – the small print actually excludes airline crew rates and the like, but any standard rate on the Accor website should be OK.
Note that if you signed up for the ‘Euro 160 for three stays’ promotion then it will NOT combine with this, because the Avios promotion requires you to earn Avios points instead of Accor points. It is now too late to register for that promotion if you did not do so.
