If you build up a lot of Le Club AccorHotels points through your stays at Ibis, Novotel, Mercure and Sofitel hotels, you now have new options for using them.
Want to go to Paris?
The AccorHotels Arena is the second largest arena in Paris after the Stadt de France. It reopened in October after substantial modernisation and Accor has signed a 10 year deal to be the core sponsor. It was previously known as Palais Omnisports Paris Bercy.
The prices seem very reasonable. Big name rock concerts seem to be around 10,000 points for two people whilst sporting events are cheaper. You can book as far ahead as April so there is plenty of time to arrange flights or a train and a hotel around your trip. Remember that 10,000 Accor points would only get you €200 of free hotel stays or 10,000 Avios if you redeemed via that route.
There will also be special benefits for Le Club members who purchase standard tickets. Around 100 seats for each event will be reserved for members (for cash) and you will have access to a private bar situated directly behind you.
You can browse events and book your seats via this website. Thanks to Marcus.
Want to stay in the UK?
Accor has also been trialling tickets for events in London, using a box at the O2.
All of the current events are sold out. However, it is worth bookmarking this link – www.leclubaccorhotels-vip-events-uk.com to keep an eye on what turns up. I will also report back if I see anything interesting!
