How the program works

Through the AccorHotels loyalty program, you’re able to earn points by doing a number of different things.

For example, you can earn points by booking to stay at one of the hotels who participate in their program.

When you actually reach the hotel in question, you’ll earn points whilst you’re there too. The number of points you can earn at any given hotel varies dependent on a number of factors. More on that later.

AccorHotels tries to reward their customers at every opportunity. You can earn points from taking expenses during your stay, like breakfast, mini bar, spa treatments or using the phone.

AccorHotels understand that these extras cost money. They also understand that their customers are often going to want use these paid extras and to say an extra thank-you, they reward you for doing so with points. screen-shot-2017-02-12-at-11-54-42

Not only that but AccorHotels have tried to partner up with as many companies as possible so that you’re rewarded for the whole time you’re away. For example, if you’re travelling and you use the partnered railway, you’ll earn points. If you’re travelling and you shop at one of their partnered shops, you’ll earn points.

This is a great way for Accor to give back to their customers and widen their reach.

What we like about the program

What we love about AccorHotels loyalty program is the transparency. Yes, they admit and explicitly say that the number of points you can earn will be dependent on various factors.

But they don’t let their customers go in blind. They feature a ‘points calculator’ on their website that shows the user exactly how many points they’ll earn from their stay.
