What’s the deal with Accor Family and Friends?
Accor currently have an offer for 30% off rates at participating properties in Australia and New Zealand for family members and friends of employees. Normally, the Accor discount is just for family members, so if you’re a friend of someone who works for an Accor brand and you’re looking for accommodation in one of these two Oceanic countries, now’s the time to check rates.
What discount can I get by using Accor Family and Friends?
With the Bienvenue card (Accor’s employee discount scheme), after six months of service, employees and their family members can get 30% off the best available rate. There’s no Friends and Family Rate as such usually, just the Staff and Family Rate. In this instance, family is classed as spouse, civil partner or children. The 30% discount is off the best available rate for accommodation and breakfast at global Accor hotels, subject to availability.
Bienvenue cardholders are also entitled to ‘Family member breaks’ at the Bienvenue rate at Accor hotels in the UK and Ireland. This is for immediate family members including spouse, civil partner and children, but is also extended to parents, brothers and sisters.
30% off Australia and New Zealand booking…
We checked the 30% off Australia and New Zealand offer to see if it’s readily available. We looked for a hotel near Sydney for one night on August 7th, 2015, for a room for two people.
Sorting by price, the 4.5 star Novotel Sydney Norwest hotel seemed a good bet (US $99.06 Friends and Family rate instead of the $141.51 Best Unrestricted Rate) and not too far away from the New South Wales capital (26km). The discount is exactly 30% off:
