Accor Live Limitless (ALL) has quietly launched this month a program feature that is in place through the end of 2020.
You can now earn points under ALL when you book a stay under your account and merely note on the comments box the name of the guests who are staying.
You can access this offer on Accor’s website here.
EDIT: I have now updated this piece with the countries where this offer is valid:
This offer is valid for all Accor hotels in the following countries:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
- Czech Republic
- United Kingdom
Accor only has the following information on its website:
In times that have been a little challenging, it is great to see people spreading joy throughout the world. You may have a loved one who is in need of a little pick-me-up and think they deserve a break. Now, until the end of the year, you can treat your loved ones to an exciting city break, a trip to the beach or send them for some R&R at a country retreat and we will reward you for doing so.
Make a booking for your spouse, partner or child and earn the Reward points for that booking, even if you aren’t staying yourself. That means you can treat your family and boost your balance in the process. Or maybe it is you in need of the treat? Earn points from your family’s booking and save them up to redeem against your own weekend away.
To benefit, you just need to make the booking as normal before 31 December 2020, while logged into your ALL account. Please enter the name of the attending guest in the comments box for the hotel to process. Just make sure the dates don’t overlap with your next trip!
I am almost 100% sure that Accor ALL cannot distinguish between stays under this offer and those of the account holder. This essentially allows you to earn not only base and bonus points but elite qualifying points and nights too.
And those nights and points earned through the end of 2020 are rolled over to 2021 (read more here).
Many hotel programs are now launching promotions and program enhancements, trying to get as many bookings and consumed stays as possible. This may drive some business from members that can now earn points for Friends and Family-stays.
Programs don’t usually allow members to earn points and elite qualifying nights/stays if they are not present (at least at the time of checking in).
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
General ALL – Accor Live Limitless terms and conditions apply to the Earn for Family offer and you must be an ALL – Accor Live Limitless member to benefit from it.
This offer is available only to current members with an address in Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
This offer entitles ALL – Accor Live Limitless members, regardless of their membership status, to earn Reward points on a stay they make for a family member at any hotel that has enrolled to participate in the ALL – Accor Live Limitless loyalty programme, even if the member is not staying. A family member is identified as the spouse or partner, or child of the ALL member.
Members are only allowed to earn points on rooms booked for family members if the nominated family member in question is not yet a member.
The Reward points offered are earned by the member on completing an eligible stay, in accordance with the ALL – Accor Live Limitless general conditions of use.
The points can only be issued once on a given date and there must be no overlap of dates in a staying period.
- For example, if a stay is booked for 05/01/2020 – 10/01/2020, no other stay can be booked within that period.
This offer is valid for a member’s stay from 27/07/2020 to 31/12/2020 in one of the participating hotels in Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Kazakhstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine and the United Kingdom, and booked between 27/07/2020, through 11:59 p.m. Central European Time (CET), 31/12/2020.
Any consecutive stays (check-out and check-in same day) in the same hotel, will be considered as a single stay. This single stay will be eligible once on the Earn for Family offer.
For the purposes of this offer, a stay is understood to be one (1) booking by an ALL – Accor Live Limitless member for one or several rooms. In other words, bookings that include more than one (1) room will be counted as just one (1) stay. The earlier check-out date is counted while the credit of Reward points is calculated.
In other words, an ALL – Accor Live Limitless member will receive eligible points and nights for the room which he/she or their family member vacates first.
Points are able to be earned on a maximum of two rooms.
To be eligible for this offer, stays must be booked via all.accor.com or Accor brand websites, the Accor ALL app, and Accor call centre or Accor booking office or through a traditional travel agency whose booking system is automatically connected to the Accor booking office. Stays booked via a reseller, tour operator or third-party online travel agent (such as expedia.com, booking.com, etc.) will not be eligible for this offer.
You must provide your ALL – Accor Live Limitless Loyalty card number when making your reservation, and state the name of the nominated person that the room will be allocated to, in the notes of the booking.
The ALL – Accor Live Limitless Reward points will be credited to the member’s account within 10 days of the family member checking out.
It is not possible to redeem points for part or all of any stay booked for a family member.
This offer is subject to availability. General sales terms and conditions apply for reserved public rates specific to each hotel.
