Accor is running an interesting offer for its UK hotels. If you buy a gift voucher, you will receive a slug of bonus Accor Live Limitless points.
These can be used for a cash discount on a future stay (1 point = 2 Eurocents, albeit you need 2,000 points to convert) or sent to Avios in Iberia Plus at the rate of 1:1.
Here are the offers, which are on the website here:
- Get 500 points (worth €10) with a £100 gift card
- Get 1,500 points (worth €30) with a £250 gift card
The website contains a list of participating hotels but in reality it seems to be (virtually?) all of the UK ones.
Gift cards are valid for 12 months. Note that they CANNOT be used to book ‘pay in advance’ rates, so you will be locked into booking more expensive ‘pay at check-out’ rooms.
That said, if you regularly book UK Accor hotels with ‘pay on departure’ rates then you should jump in.
You can find out more on the Accor website here.
Accor Live Limitless update – July 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.
