Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Accor Super Sale – up to 30% off and free breakfast

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Yesterday was the start of the new Accor Super Sale, featuring discounts at 2,800 hotels worldwide

Le Club AccorHotels members have already been able to book rooms for the last few days.  This week non members can also take advantage of cheaper room rates and free breakfast.

However I’d recommend non members to just sign up for Le Club anyway …. you can read more about Le Club AccorHotels here.

Until 21st October guests can save up to 30% on most Accor brands and will get free breakfast.

For example one night at the Sofitel Hotel Heathrow in a Classic Room with queen-size bed on 3rd February costs £133.30 in the Super Sale instead of £170.10.  Note that the higher price is the non member smart rate and that this rate is also cancellable under 72 hours before arrival.


The offer is only valid for stays between 16th December 2016 and 5th March 2017.  Formule 1 properties are excluded.

If you change your settings from earning points to miles you will earn at least 7 Avios per Euro with any booking completed by 31st December as long as you credit to Iberia and not to BA.  Rob wrote about this promotion here.

Accor Live Limitless update – August 2021:

Earn bonus Accor points: You will receive double base points on Accor stays in the UK and Europe until 5th September 2021, but you must register before booking. You can register here.

    Isn’t 16 December when everyone’s Accor platinum runs out? Suspicious

    • Genghis says:

      My current card is valid to Dec 2017

    • Mike says:

      Mine is Dec 17 now as well – looks like they gave everyone an extra year?

      • Rob says:

        It’s not that. All year ends will be December from 2017 so they need to align them. Mine, oddly, still shows a random year end date – hopefully it updates itself.

        • Andrew says:

          Mine *was* April 2017 (mid-year Amex play request) but got extended to December 2017 when they announced changes to Le Club rules. They updated my account but didn’t send a new card. Logging in and requesting a replacement card got me one that states 12/17.

        • Alan says:

          Mine is May 2017 🙁

  • Cheshire Pete says:

    I was late re applying for my Platinum to extend it when Amex did the pull and it extended from Dec 2016 and currently showing 04/2017. However I thought all cards were supposed to be end of the year when they did the realignment. Perhaps it will extend come January.

    I’ve had this sale on email for over a week now. At first I thought it was a good deal until I added the original price of a cheapest luxury room at LHR versus a sale price with free breakfast and found only a few pounds differences. With lounge access and therefore a smaller breakfast in that room type I certainly didn’t see a 30% difference! More like a free breakfast thrown in

  • Daz says:

    To be fair the T5 Sofitel breakfast is pretty good and I would be happy to pay £130 for my wife , sprog and me; followed by an upgraded room and lounge access for Platinum members, it not bad if flying from T5.

  • Anon says:

    I’m still chasing points from a stay since early Sept, contacting them every week, what a FAFF!

  • Jovanna says:

    My card shows 12/2016.

    • RussellH says:

      My last card said 09/2016. It did not update to 12/2017 until late on 1 October, which was a pain trying to book online on 1 October – all attempts to book errored out with “incorrect membership data” errors. I had to book by phone.

      I also discovered that sometimes certain rates will not combine with the €40 discount for 2000 points – I had to book a flexible rate rather than a discounted rate to get the €40 off. First time this has happened to me.

      pS – I have statred calling myself RussellH since there is at least one other Russell on here!

  • Waribai says:

    Slightly related. I’m on auto convert to Iberia from Accor points. Any idea how long it should take for points to move across. There was movement out 7 days ago but nothing has hit the iberia account yet. I know it says 6 weeks but does it really take that long?

  • polly says:

    OK. Just trying plaza premium in T 2 atm. Very pleasant. Been here since 09.00. Breakfast saved my day…really pleasant surprise to find it. Was heading to Costa!

    • CV3V says:

      Yeah, its a nice lounge and a much nicer space to relax than BA Galleries

    • Rob says:

      Very good lounge, they have a similar facility in Terminal 4.

    • Alan says:

      Yep, it’s a decent lounge. Have also used it when arriving on SQ too for a shower before heading off on my domestic connection.
