UPDATE – AUGUST 2021: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry.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.
Accor runs regular promotions offering QUADRUPLE Accor Live Limitless points at its new hotels. There are often no UK properties taking part, but the new list has some good options.
Here are the participating properties in the UK:
ibis Styles London Heathrow Airport East (funky picture below, it is on Great West Road and so has an art deco theme)
Mercure Oxford Hawkwell House
Adagio Aparthotel Leicester
To see participating hotels outside the UK, click on the promo page on the website and click ‘Conditions of Sale’. It is a very varied list running from Ibis to a new Pullman Maldives resort.
Here are the rules:
- You MUST register before booking via this special page of the Accor website
- You must book before 3rd March
- You must stay before 19th April
- There is no minimum stay
- You can only earn the bonus once (not once per hotel, once in total across all the participating hotels)
The offer works out nicely:
- You earn 2.5 Accor base points per €1
- You earn 7.5 additional Accor points per €1 as your promo bonus
This is a total of 10 Accor points per €1 equivalent you spend, plus any status bonus you are due. This is worth 20 Eurocents if used for Accor hotel vouchers – so 20% back on your spending – or 10 Avios per €1.
The rate is lower at Ibis, at 1.25 points per €1, and Adagio, at 1 point per €1. This means that only two of the four hotels above earn the full 2.5 points per €1.
If you choose to auto-convert into Avios, you must choose Iberia Plus and not British Airways Executive Club. This is because the conversion rate is different – 1:1 into Iberia Plus versus 2:1 into British Airways Executive Club. Later, you can move your Avios from Iberia Plus to British Airways Executive Club using ‘Combine My Avios’.
