Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

LAST DAY TO BOOK: Accor launches a double points hotel promotion across Europe

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Accor LIve Limitless is currently running a ‘double points’ promotion for stays in selected European and North African countries, including the UK.

You can register here.

As usual with Accor offers, existing bookings made before registration won’t count so you will need to cancel and rebook any upcoming stays to earn the bonus. You should obviously check the cancellation terms and the current selling price before you do this.

What are double Accor Live Limitless points worth?

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

1 point is worth 2 Eurocents off your next booking, although you need to redeem in chunks of 2,000 points.

The standard earn rate at most brands is 2.5 points per €1. Double base points means 5 points per €1. This means 10 Eurocents of free stays for every €1 you spend, pre-tax, which is a decent return. Anyone with elite status will earn even more.

You can also transfer your Accor Live Limitless points to Avios although you lose value compared to using them for a discount on a future stay. Ensure you transfer into Iberia Plus, where the rate to Avios is 1:1, rather than British Airways Executive Club or Qatar Airways Privilege Club, where the rate is 2:1. You can move your Avios from Iberia Plus into your BA account via ‘Combine My Avios’ – instructions here.

Don’t forget to link your Accor account to your Qatar Airways Privilege Club account

You can now earn Avios ON TOP of Accor Live Limitless points. It’s an easy win with no downside.

You earn 1 Avios for every €1, before taxes, you spend at any Accor Live Limitless hotel.

You will need a Qatar Airways Privilege Club account to do this. You can move the Avios across to British Airways Executive Club by linking your Qatar Airways and BA accounts following the instructions here.

To link your Accor Live Limitless and Qatar Airways accounts, go to this page of the Accor website.

You do NOT need to do this before booking a stay but you must do it before you check in. Once done, you can sit back and forget about it – all future Accor stays will earn you Avios automatically.

Don’t forget to register before booking

You can find out more about the Accor double points offer, and register, here.

Remember that today, Sunday, is the last day to book.

PS. As I found recently, if you have an issue with an Accor promotion you need to be able to quote the promo reference number. This one is ‘020182’.
