It’s no secret that at InsideFlyerUK we feel Accor is a bit underappreciated compared to the other big hotel groups (in fact I wrote a whole series about how to get maximum value from staying at Accor hotels!). The recent bonus offers haven’t quite reached the dizzy heights available a couple of years ago, but they still tend to be solid – and the latest, for triple Accor Points, is no exception.
The standard earning rate is 2.5 Points per Euro, so triple Points means 7.5 Points per Euro – or about 8.77 Points per £1.00.
Accor Points have a flat redemption value of ~ 1.7p each (0.02 Euros) and you can only redeem in blocks of 2,000 Points (40 Euros).
This means that triple Points works out at a rebate of just under 15%.
If you don’t fancy going down the cashback route, Accor is also currently offering 500 bonus Points for booking via the app. 500 Points is worth about £8.50 (10 Euros), so this could well be a better option than cashback on cheap stays, particularly if you can take advantage of ‘Happy Mondays’ rates.
It’s also worth pointing out that there is a triple Avios bonus on at the moment too, although it doesn’t provide as much value as the triple Accor Points offer.
Accor’s IT is notoriously (hilariously?) ‘eccentric’ so I wouldn’t be surprised if you can benefit from both offers at the same time. I’ve got a couple of Accor stays coming up in the next couple of weeks, so hopefully I will be able to report back on that before 11th September!
