The two biggest French travel-loyalty programs are joining forces: If you link your FlyingBlue account with your LeClub Accorhotels account, you’ll be earning miles on your hotel-stays and Accor-points on your flights. Just by registering, you could even get 10 XPs and 2 status nights.
This is how the new alliance works:
- On flights, you’ll not only earn FlyingBlue miles but also Accor points. For every €2 spent on the flight and extras, you’ll earn one point.
- When sleeping in an Accor hotel, you’ll not only earn Accor points but also one FlyingBlue mile per spent euro.
- You can transfer points/miles between the programs. 4,000 miles will give you 1,000 LeClub points, and 2,000 points give you 1,000 miles. This is not an attractive rate, either way.
Joining is easy. You need to be a member of both loyalty programs and then link the accounts.
When you register, you get 5 XP (FlyBlue’s status miles) and one status night at LeClub Accorhotels as a bonus at your first stay and again at your first night (not necessarily in that order). So, even if you’re not planning on ever staying at an Accor hotel, this is a nice way to get 5 XP for free. And if you do fly and stay at the hotel, that adds up to 10 XP.
