Back for Summer 2017 is the Accor Smart Explorer challenge. Sadly, Accor didn’t think to really tell anyone about it, so you might be in with a chance (thanks to FlyerTalk for alerting us to its return). Until the 6th of July, there’s 100 lots of 1,000 Accor Le Club points (worth €20) to win daily, plus 5 grand prizes of 200,000 Accor Le Club points (with €4000)!

Since Accor seems to have been so bad at letting people know this year, we think you might have a decent chance with this one…

To enter, you must first be a member of Accor’s Le Club loyalty programme. Next, head to and enrol in the competition with your Le Club number, name, email address etc. Then…

Our Smart Explorer’s back from his trip around the world, his head and suitcase simply overflowing with memories and souvenirs… 50, to be precise.
Knowing you’re a well-seasoned traveller, he’s decided to put your travel knowledge to the test from 22 June to 6 July 2017, giving you the chance to win loads of Rewards points!

Will you manage to identify which country each of his souvenirs came from before the time runs out?

Once a day, you can have a go at guessing which country each of the 50 items comes from. You’ve only got 2 minutes per day to guess, so be quick! Some are obvious, others are a bit more tricky. Each country occurs only once, and there’s an auto-completion box on the country names that helps.

Once your 2 minutes are up, you’ll be told if you’re one of the 100 winners of 1,000 points for the day. Once you’ve managed to get all 50, you’ll be entered into the grand prize draw at the end, for the 5 lots of 200,000 Accor Le Club points. Good luck!

(Accor Le Club is the loyalty scheme for 3,400 different hotels. The brands covered are Sofitel, Pullman, MGallery, Grand Mercure, The Sebel, Novotel, Mercure, Mama Shelter, Adagio, ibis, ibis Styles, and Adagio Access, so you should have no trouble finding a nice hotel to redeem any winnings with)

I like the look of this Accor Smart Explorer challenge. The chances of winning something must be pretty good –  at least until Accor thinks to send an email out about it!

    Strangely, I only got 90 seconds today, and the auto-complete doesn’t seem to work for me, it brings up countries but I can’t click on the completed name. Might try a different browser tomorrow.

      You don’t need to cluck on the country names for the auto-complete. Just type enough that there’s only one still showing, then hit enter, and it should be accepted!
