Qantas Frequent Flyer doubles down on partnership with Accor

TOUR ACCORHOTELS A ISSY LES MOULINEAUX
Edited by Travel Weekly


    Flying is now even more rewarding for travellers who capitalise on the partnership between Qantas Frequent Flyer and ALL – Accor Live Limitless, with the loyalty programs expanding the benefits to more people and increasing the value for their linked members.

    The Qantas Frequent Flyer and ALL – Accor Live Limitless partnership rewards members twice (once in each program) when they fly with Qantas and/or stay at one of Accor’s hotels.

    As part of the partnership’s expansion, Gold Qantas Frequent Flyers are also now eligible to double dip on rewards when they link their membership accounts, which is a perk previously reserved for Platinum and Platinum One Frequent Flyers only.

    This means that, from today, Gold and above members in each program who have linked their accounts will enjoy more than double the ALL value when they book Qantas flights, with the earn rate increasing to 1 ALL – Accor Live Limitless Reward point per $2 spent, up from 1 ALL Reward point per $5 spent – on top of the Qantas Points they would already earn.

    Since the partnership launched in 2021, hundreds of thousands of members have linked their accounts earning millions of Qantas and ALL Points.

    Qantas Frequent Flyers can already convert their ALL – Accor Live Limitless Reward points to Qantas Points at the rate of one ALL – Accor Live Limitless Reward point per one Qantas Point (in increments of 2000)

    OVERVIEW OF BENEFITS

    COMMENTS FROM QANTAS LOYALTY CEO OLIVIA WIRTH

    “We have had an incredible response from our frequent flyers who are loving being able to earn points twice when they fly with Qantas and stay in an Accor hotel, and we know our Gold members will enjoy the added benefits.

    “The points they earn help them get their next night in a hotel or get a Classic Flight Reward Seat on their next holiday.

    “This partnership is really about rewarding members at every stage of their travel journey with the ability to earn twice when they fly with Qantas or stay with Accor.

    “We’re focused on giving our loyal members more value which is why we have expanded the program.”

    COMMENTS FROM ACCOR PACIFIC CEO SARAH DERRY

    “Our partnership with Qantas, where members of ALL – Accor Live Limitless and Qantas Frequent Flyer can for the first time be rewarded twice when they fly with Qantas and stay at one of Accor’s hotels, is a game changer in the tourism industry.

    “Today, we are thrilled to enable Gold and above members of ALL and Qantas Frequent Flyer to access rewards even faster. And, it comes at a time when we are seeing strong demand for travel.
    “Accor is dedicated to creating world-class customer experiences and we are thrilled to have a partner who shares our passion for delivering rewards and recognition to our loyal members.

    “Accor was the first hotel operator in the Pacific to reward their customer’s loyalty with exceptional partner benefits, which includes the ability to boost Qantas Points and the opportunity to attend world-class sporting and entertainment experiences at Accor Stadium and Qudos Bank Area in Sydney.”

    How a member can earn:

    Members need to link their Qantas Frequent Flyer and ALL – Accor Live Limitless accounts to start earning. A member can link their accounts on the Qantas Frequent Flyer or Accor Live Limitless websites.
