How do I earn Accor ALL points?
The varying earn rates at the different Accor brands can make it a bit confusing to calculate how many points you’ll earn. They also base their earn rate on the amount you spend, converted to euros.
Accor does have a calculator that you can use, which makes it a bit easier to work out exactly how much you’ll earn for your spend at any given property. Here is the full earn rate table:
Accor has also retained its ties with car hire companies. Eligible rentals will earn the following rewards:
- 3 points for every €1 spent at Hertz will earn
- Up to 150 points per day with Avis
- A maximum of 1,000 points for every booking depending on the length of rental with Europcar
How do I redeem Accor ALL points?
Here are the ways in which you can use your Accor Rewards points:
Hotel stays: You can still use Accor Rewards points to redeem towards free or discounted stay rewards at most participating hotels. The same redeem rate applies as before, with 2,000 Rewards points giving you €40 (~$64 AUD) of credit to spend.
Transfer to frequent flyer partners: You can convert your points into miles with over 30 frequent flyer programs, including Qantas, Virgin Australia Velocity, Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer and Cathay Pacific Asia Miles. The full list of programs is available here.
The exchange rate is 2 points to 1 mile for most programs. Qantas and Velocity are notable exceptions, with an improved 1:1 transfer ratio.
Other uses: You can directly use your Accor points to pay for car hire with Europcar, but this is rarely good value compared to using them for reward nights. 2,000 Rewards points get you €20 off a rental.
Likewise, using points for experiences or shopping also will be bad value overall unless it is a money-can’t-buy-experience you really want, or you have no other use for your points.
What is Accor Plus?
Accor Plus is the Asia Pacific loyalty subscription program of Accor. It is a paid subscription program that includes travel, dining and lifestyle benefits that are in addition to Accor Live Limitless.
The four major benefits include:
- A free night “Stay Plus” at participating hotels across Asia -Pacific.
- Up to 50% of “Red Hot Rooms” promotions, where you get a half-price discount rate at certain hotels.
- Up to 50% off your restaurant bill, and 15% off drinks at participating restaurants in Asia.
- Silver status with the Accor ALL loyalty program.
If you have the American Express Platinum Charge card, one of your benefits is a complimentary annual membership to Accor Plus.
What effect does COVID-19 have on Accor ALL?
Although Accor was initially slow to announce status extensions, it eventually did so in mid-May 2020.
All reward program members will now keep their 2019 status level until the end of December 31, representing a two-year extension. For those actively looking to requalify beyond that, any points and status nights clocked up between 1 July and 31 December 2020 will count towards 2021 requalification.
ALL Rewards points expiry is frozen until 15 December 2020 and any unused Suite Night Upgrades will be extended for 12 months.
How do I contact Accor Live Limitless?
Have a question? The easiest way to get in touch is via the web form. The rewards program doesn’t have a direct phone number to call, though there is a number for reservations and general enquiries.
While the introduction of the new Diamond status tier at the end of 2019 is sure to please the biggest spenders with Accor, the program rebrand has brought minimal change for most members.
Nevertheless, Accor Live Limitless is a must-know program, being a decent loyalty program with a flexible points currency, and good value redemptions for hotels and transfers to partners like Qantas and Velocity.
