You can convert 4,000 Le Club Accorhotels to 2,000 miles with all other partners except the following 7:

  • For Finnair Plus (Finnair), the conversion rate is: 2,000 Le Club AccorHotels points = 2,000 Finnair Plus points
  • For Iberia Plus (Iberia), the conversion rate is: 3,000 Le Club AccorHotels points = 3,000 Avios
  • For Qantas Frequent Flyer (Qantas Airways), the conversion rate is: 2,000 Le Club AccorHotels points = 2,000 points.
  • For Velocity Frequent Flyer (Virgin Australia), the conversion rate is: 4,000 Le Club AccorHotels points = 4,000 Velocity points
  • For PhoenixMiles (Air China), the conversion rate is: 4,000 Le Club AccorHotels points = 3,200 miles.
  • For Flying Blue (Air France KLM), the conversion rate is: 2,000 points Le Club AccorHotels = 1,000 miles, with a maximum of 60,000 Le Club AccorHotels points convertible per year, per cardholder.
  • For Skymiles (Delta Airlines), the maximum amount of Le Club AccorHotels points convertible per year, per Le Club AccorHotels member, is 250,000,

You can get Le Club AccorHotels to convert to your points to airline miles automatically after each of your stay or when you have minimum of 2 points. There are FIVE exceptions to this:

  • For PhoenixMiles (Air China), automatic conversion takes place starting when the member earns 5 Le Club AccorHotels points.
  • For Finnair Plus (Finnair), automatic conversion takes place starting when the member earns 1 Le Club AccorHotels point.
  • For Qantas Frequent Flyer (Qantas Airways), automatic conversion takes place starting when the member earns 1 Le Club AccorHotels point.
  • For Miles & More (Lufthansa), automatic conversion takes place starting when the member earns 1,000 Le Club AccorHotels points.
  • Miles & More (Lufthansa) guarantees its members a minimum of 500 miles under certain conditions:

Minimum of 1 night stayed at Sofitel, Pullman, or MGallery per stay.

Minimum of 2 nights stayed at Novotel, Suite Novotel, Mercure, or Adagio per stay.

Minimum of 4 nights stayed at ibis or ibis styles/all seasons per stay.

  • Automatic conversion without threshold is not available for Club Premier (Aeromexico) and Velocity Frequent Flyer (Virgin Australia)

Conclusion

Le Club AccorHotels has ended the partnership with China Southern’s Sky Pearl Club without prior notification.

I don’t think that converting Le Club AccorHotels points to airline miles makes much sense unless there is a promotion for set number of miles for each stay (as there used to be). I perhaps could consider converting to Iberia Plus at 1:1 ratio and then moving them to British Airways (you can move Avios between accounts)
