Most Australian Ibis Budgets Now Participate in Accor ALL

Ibis Budget Canberra
Ibis Budget in Canberra is one of 15 in Australia now participating in Accor ALL.

Accor ALL members can now earn and redeem Rewards points, earn qualifying nights and receive status benefits at 15 of the 20 Ibis Budget Hotels in Australia.

Accor ALL is the loyalty program of the Accor group of hotels, which includes brands like Ibis, Novotel, Sofitel, Mercure and Mantra.

When booking direct and staying at most Accor properties, Accor ALL members can earn Rewards points, Status points and qualifying nights towards status, as well as redeem points towards nights. But a small number of Accor hotel “exceptions” don’t participate in the Accor ALL program at all. This includes Ibis Budget hotels in most countries, and until recently included all Ibis Budget hotels in Australia.

But the following Ibis Budget hotels in Australia now appear to be participating in the Accor ALL loyalty program:

  • Brisbane Airport
  • Campbelltown
  • Canberra
  • Casula Liverpool
  • Coffs Harbour
  • Dandenong
  • Dubbo
  • Enfield
  • Fawkner
  • Melbourne CBD
  • Newcastle
  • Perth Airport
  • St Peters
  • Sydney Olympic Park
  • Wentworthville

For whatever reason, there are still five Ibis Budget properties in Australia that do not participate in Accor ALL:

  • Sydney Airport
  • Sydney East
  • Gosford
  • Windsor Brisbane
  • Melbourne Airport

Grand Mercure Apartments The Vintage Hunter Valley is currently the only other Accor property in Australia that does not participate in Accor ALL.

Accor publishes a list of properties that do not participate in the hotel’s loyalty program on its website. This list still states that all Ibis Budget hotels worldwide are excluded from the program except for all Ibis Budgets in Poland, Russia, South Korea and Japan. However, LoyaltyLobby recently confirmed that these Australian hotels do indeed now participate in the loyalty program.

If you’re unsure, you can check any hotel’s listing on the Accor website to see if members of the loyalty program are able to earn Status & Rewards points, use Rewards points and benefit from (elite status) advantages at the property.

Accor ALL members can now benefit from the loyalty program at Ibis Budget Dubbo.

Unfortunately, the Accor ALL earn rate at Ibis Budget hotels is nothing to get particularly excited about. You’ll earn 5 Rewards or Status Points per €10 (or AUD equivalent) spent (or a slightly higher rate of Rewards points if you have Accor status). But if you’re aiming to qualify for Accor ALL status based on nights, this could still be useful when staying at Ibis Budgets as nights will now be counted towards your status.

With Accor ALL, you would need to earn 2,000 Rewards points to get a €40 (or equivalent) discount off a hotel booking or 2,000 Qantas points.

Ibis Budget hotels are nothing fancy, but are generally very affordable. In fact, Ibis Budget recently offered rooms for $48/night as part of a flash sale.

The introduction of Accor points & benefits at most Australian Ibis Budget hotels will also open up more opportunities to earn Qantas points when Accor and Qantas Frequent Flyer launch their new partnership later this year.

Earn 4x points at newly-added Accor ALL properties

In a separate promotion, Accor ALL is currently offering 4x Rewards points when staying at properties that recently joined the Accor ALL program. This includes various brand new hotels, as well as most of the Ibis Budget hotels in Australia that recently began participating in the program.

This promotion is available to Accor ALL members who register by 21 May 2021 and stay by 5 July 2021. In Australia, The Sebel Melbourne Ringwood and Mövenpick Hobart are also included in this offer.
