Accor has now internally developed and acquired a total of 40+, yes, your read it right, brands, and has integrated 40 of them into the Accor Live Limitless program (fully or partially).
There are brands and specific hotels that don’t participate in Accor Live Limitless (ALL) program at all (read more here), and there is a matrix on the number of points you earn at participating brands (17 different percentage levels!).
You can Accor’s page to calculate the number of points you earn here.
Accor’s page states how many points you earn per 10 euros, and not per euro or per USD that is generally used by various programs.
As Accor’s awards are entirely dynamic, it is the easiest to think of ALL points as a percentage of the paid rate you earn back.
You must keep in mind that you do not earn points for sales or value added taxes, service or resort fees, and other government-mandated real taxes.
You earn points for most incidentals that you can charge to the hotel folio such as laundry and hotel F&B charges (remember that some outlets may not be controlled by the hotel even when you can charge it to your room).
Accor Live Limitless Point Earnings
Note that onefinestay is partially Accor Live Limitless participating. Therefore, you earn 1 points per euro (2% back) but no elite bonuses or qualifying nights.
Some ibis Budget hotels are ALL participating. So it should clearly indicate it at the time of booking.
Status (access Accor’s page for status levels here)
Remember that, unless you need to stay at the brands that earn the full points, you need much higher spend for reaching Silver, Gold, or Platinum tier, or you need to reach them by nights. You can only get Diamond status by spending a significant amount of cash.
- SILVER – WHEN YOU SPEND €800* ON STAYS AND SERVICES OR STAY AT LEAST 10 NIGHTS
- GOLD – WHEN YOU SPEND €2,800* ON STAYS AND SERVICES OR STAY AT LEAST 30 NIGHTS
- PLATINUM – WHEN YOU SPEND €5,600* ON STAYS AND SERVICES OR STAY AT LEAST 60 NIGHTS
- DIAMOND – WHEN YOU SPEND €10,400* ON STAYS AND SERVICES
It is quite confusing how many points you earn for Accor stays because it depends on the brand and your status level.
Remember that when we write about Accor’s bonus offers for ALL members, the bonuses earned are counted based on the standard points you earn for the stay before the tier or other possible extras.
I wish that there would be more standard ways of earning ALL point. Right now, it varies between 1% to 8.8% depending on the brand and your status.
