If you collect Etihad Guest miles, there is a decent Accor hotel promotion running. This covers Mercure, Ibis, Sofitel, Pullman, M Gallery, Novotel etc.
You will receive triple Etihad Guest miles on stays booked and consumed by 30th June.
Your Accor account must be set to automatically transfer points to Etihad after each stay. Note that if you have over 2,000 Accor points in your account they will automatically be sent to Etihad Guest when you change the settings on your account (and not tripled) so don’t do this if that isn’t your plan.
The standard Etihad Guest earning rate is 1 mile for every 2 Le Club AccorHotels points earned, which will triple to 3 miles for every 2 Accor points under this offer.
Points earning varies by brand and status but a non-status member will generally receive 2 Accor points per €1 spent, which would mean – under this offer – getting 3 Etihad Guest miles per €1.
Full details and terms can be found on the Accor website here.
