Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Good Accor deal – earn 6,000 Avios or €120 of Accor hotel points for 3 x 2-night stays

Accor Hotels, which owns Novotel / Ibis / Mercure / M Gallery / Sofitel / Pullman / Raffles / Swissotel / Fairmont etc, has brought back its generous promotion to earn 6,000 bonus Accor points.

You will earn 6,000 Accor Live Limitless points (worth 6,000 Avios or a variable pile of other airline miles, or €120 of hotel stays) if you complete three x two night stays at Accor properties between 10th October and 20th December.

earn 6,000 Avios or Accor hotel points (or €120) for 3 x 2-night stays

That is clearly a decent deal, although the two night restriction per stay could be tricky. What is also frustrating is that the booking window closes early on 17th October.

If you can make it work around your work or leisure plans, however, you are looking at a good result – especially for stays at cheaper Accor brands.

You must book your stays between now and 17th October and you must register first.

You need to book via the Accor website or a corporate travel agent. Stays booked via hotel wholesalers such as Expedia,, etc will not count.

Existing bookings do NOT count. These need to be cancelled and rebooked.  Only bookings made after you have registered (link here) are eligible.

How to register

You MUST register for this promotion via the offer website here. 

Accor 6000 points promotion

What is the bonus?

The bonus is dropped into your Accor account in the form of 6,000 Accor Live Limitless points:

  • Your first 2-night stay comes with 500 bonus points
  • Your second 2-night stay comes with 2,500 bonus points
  • Your third 2-night stay comes with 3,000 bonus points

Whilst the Accor website for this promotion focuses on taking points, you can convert your 6,000 bonus points (plus base points) into airline miles. For the main programmes we write about, the conversion rates are:

  • Flying Blue 2:1
  • British Airways Executive Club Avios: 2:1
  • Iberia Avios: 1:1 (so don’t convert to BA!)
  • Emirates Skywards: 2:1
  • Etihad Guest: 2:1
  • Miles & More: 2:1

The secret with converting to Avios is to send them to an Iberia Plus account to get the higher 1:1 conversion rate.  You can then use ‘Combine My Avios’ to move them to British Airways Executive Club. 

You can’t transfer out of Iberia Plus accounts until they are 90 days old, so if you open one specifically for this offer then you might have a slight delay before you can move the Avios across.

6000 bonus Accor points

Should you take Avios or Accor Live Limitless points?

Our main article on what we think Accor Live Limitless points are worth is here.

Whilst 6,000 Avios is certainly attractive, you need to remember that by converting to Avios in the Iberia programme, you are effectively ‘paying’ 2 Eurocents per Avios compared to taking €120 in Accor hotel vouchers.  The hotel vouchers are therefore a better deal unless you have no plans to use them.

In all of the other airline schemes you are paying 4 Eurocents per mile which is very poor.  If you are not primarily an Avios collector I would seriously suggest taking the €120 of vouchers instead.

There is also a third factor.

Accor has recently stepped up its series of UK ‘Experiences’ events. These packages tend to offer great value and you may want to hold onto your points to see what comes along in 2024. I covered my experience of being in Accor’s VIP suite at BST Hyde Park this summer here and Accor has agreed to sponsor BST again next year.

Remember that bookings must be made by 17th October and you need to complete your stays between 10th October and 20th December.

    For my future 2023 bookings the price of the rooms have increased more than the bonus points are worth. So it’s not beneficial to cancel and rebooking to take advantage of this offer.

    • JDB says:

      The CEO of Accor was quoted recently saying occupancy is down 4% vs prices up 10% since the pandemic but looking at growing REVPAR at 2.5 to 5% going forward.

  • Lou says:

    These Accor offers are non-offers… 2 weeks to book accommodation for less than 3 months, oh, and by the way, we will reward your brand loyalty by slapping you in the face and not acknowledge previous bookings.

    Why I like the Hilton promotions…

    • Lady London says:

      Good for corporate travellers who can make firm plans to ensure they do all 3 stays (not worth bothering unless you’re sure). More effort may be required for private travellers – it’s not for nothing registration is required and the booking has to be made relatively early compared to when you’d potentially be staying.

      • Rob says:

        Yes, it’s actually a good promo for the typical corporate traveller who is out at a client site 2-3 days per week on a regular basis.

        • Lou says:

          But how many of those exist? I travel a lot for work and this wouldn’t work for me

  • The Original Nick. says:

    I need some advice on this one if anyone can help please – I’m staying at an Ibis styles next weekend. I have an Accor account. I have booked 2 friends into two other separate rooms but they are not interested in collecting points. Is there any way I could get their points credited to my Accor account?

    • Dubious says:

      Yes, if you made their booking you can claim the points if the rooms. I did this once with a colleague – had to do it as a retro claim but might be possible to ask at check-in.

    • Rob says:

      You can get points for two rooms, yes, if they are booked in your name.

  • The Original Nick. says:

    Thanks to Dubious and Rob for their replies.

  • Thomas Atkins says:

    Oh for the days when one could book the Ibis Styles, Kensington for £17 per night and absolutely take in the Accor points…

  • IanMacK says:

    This 6,000 point promo comes out just days after the 5-day 20% off flash sale promo.
    I booked 6 x 2-night stays during the flash sale November to early December with that promo.
    All these can be cancelled no penalty.
    (I also need to make another booking for December.)
    10 minutes on the arithmetic -> cancel the 2 stays with the smallest price difference (current vs booked) to earn 6,000 points and I end up £70 ahead
